When the owner and founder of one of the most popular and influential BMX brands sends over pics of his new bike, and says- “Yo man, thanks again so much for this. Its my favorite bike ever..”, you get stoked! Luckily Ralph, the owner of Animal is a great friend of ours and a huge supporter of FBM.
