Steadfast 22" Frame

FBM Steadfast Frame - Dark Butterscotch

The FBM Steadfast -- Scaled for 22" wheels

FBM 25th Anniversary Head Badge

A 74.25 degree head tube angle, 14.125" chain stays (slammed), and a 9.375" stand over height keep the bike stable yet still nimble to whip.

For 2018, we increased the headtube height from 120mm to 127mm, and the frame comes with a limited edition FBM 25th Anniversary head tube badge.

At high speeds and roasting a set you want to keep it simple; you don't want to have think of anything except that feeling.

We recommend a 28 or 30 tooth sprocket.
