I Love My Bicycle: The Story of FBM


Love Drunk
Jerk Squad

Over the course of the morning anf lunchtime, watched this today. Quite a few people are legends from the trails (DJ) scene in the video. Eastcoast BMX at its best.

These guys have a pure love for riding bikes, which is something I think is lost to a lot of people who get so caught up in training or whatever that they lose sight of why they started riding in the first place, for fun. This video shows that really well.

In reaction to the big business run companies of BMX in the early 90's, 17-year-old Steve Crandall started a company of his own called Fat Bald Men (FBM). What began as selling t-shirts out of a backpack has turned into one of the most well respected DIY bicycle companies around. Through fortune and misfortune follow FBM through their 15 years of mayhem as told by Steve Crandall and the rest of the BMX bicycle community from close friends to influential Icons like Dave Mirra and Mat Hoffman.

That was great. I just watched the entire movie. This snow needs to melt so I can go ride a bike.

Such a good watch. Love the old footage and stories. Growing up in Western MA was pretty similiar with BMX and the small but tight scene as Ithaca. Love hearing the stories about Kelly Baker - dude is a legend and still can kick ass. Thanks for the link stb222 :thumbs:
