What happened to FBM?



Over the past couple of years I have heard industry types and BMX kooks say stuff like – “FBM? are they still around?” or “How is FBM still in business?”

It’s not easy, building super high end BMX gear, much of it in house, in today’s economy, especially in such a niche market, but we work hard, and people trust FBM’s reputation.

We don’t sponsor the flavor of the month youtube pro, we haven’t chased EVERY trend, or color way, and we actually make bikes in the the FBM Machine shop, run by riders who care about what they build.

Between building frames, hosting events, and touring, its’s been a busy spring so far, New Steadfast and Gypsy frames, are already getting people stoked, while we work on new frames, and refining existing models.

We work with a small network of solid bike shops, respected artists, skilled craftsmen, underground pro riders, and by working with these same people, the riders, we promote BMX on a grassroots level, hosting dozens of events, reaching out to BMXers of all kinds, no bullshit marketing, or faux celebrity endorsements, just real BMX, from top to bottom.

What happened to FBM? All kinds of cool shit, If you take a second to look at these photos, you will get a glimpse at the attention to detail, and the commitment to quality FBM puts forth on every product we put our name on.
