Halafast 18inch Wheel Frame

FBM Steadfast Frame

The FBM Halafast --
Dialed For Modern Trail Riding -- Designed for Younger Riders

Nate Halahan with his FBM Bike

A 74.25 degree head tube angle, 12.75" chain stays (slammed), and a 8" stand over height keep the bike stable yet still nimble to whip.

The Halafast 18inch is based on the Steadfast, but scaled down for younger riders with input from Nathan Halahan.

We recommend a 28 or 30 tooth sprocket.

Handcrafted in the FBM Machine Shop in Ithaca, New York, USA
