IS NOT BIKE RIDING!
…it doesn’t owe anybody anything, and it doesn’t belong to anyone.
If you wanna do something, do it yourself, if you want to make something do it yourself, if you wanna go somewhere, don’t wait for a ride.
Your scene, your talents, your community, your videos, your jams, your afternoons spent riding with friends, will be there whether the industry, the media, or popular opinion approves or not.
Many People in the industry and the Media, and the BMX community at large, INFLUENCE Bmx, but Nobody owns it, or runs it. No matter how you dress, if you are sponsored or not, or who is the best, what music you listen to, how many instagram followers you have, or youtube views you get, whether you ride park, street, dirt or vert, it’s just you, and your bike, and what you make out of BMX…
Build your own fun, invent your own life’s meaning, do whatever you want to do. Get stoked, ride bikes, Stay Stoked, PMA!
Don’t care what they may say
we got that attitude.

In case you haven’t been paying attention, FBM is celebrating it’s 21st Birthday party on September 5th and 6th, (friday and saturday) with a street ride and fiasco in the parking lot at FBM.
You can learn some of what FBM is about and it’s history from this Albion interview/article with Steve Crandall.
In more recent news Kelly Baker and his family were at Heathens this weekend, according to Tommy T, the stoke was HIGH!
Mark your calendars, come visit FBM, and let’s have a time!
Check out the FBM Vimeo Channel for the most recent and kick ass FBM videos, all time stoke age!
Got a reminder from my friends back east, in Santa Cruz California, how awesome it is to follow your dreams, and build your own life, Miss you Dudes, Hope all is well in Sasquatch Canyon!
Do something awesome today!
In an effort to research event atmosphere for the upcoming Birthday party for FBM, and celebratory hotdog eating contest, I went to an event hosted by Vans BMX, at the 52nd annual East Coast Surf Championship in Virginia Beach.
Dennis Mccoy, his wife Parridy, and Jerry Badders, along with a serious crew of Vans Affiliated athletes put on a great show, including a vert ramp demo, I got to witness Rickey Mosely and a woman in the same spider print stretch pants, and a park contest with 20 world class riders invited to compete to a serious amount of cash. By all accounts, Vans seems to do right by their riders,and help share some of what’s awesome about BMX with an otherwise numb audience.
It was great to see riders, supporting their sponsors, and vice versa, in a mellow, friendly event that got people generally stoked, minus one moment, when a rider, unhappy with the qualifying results, balked at boycotting riding in the finals, because he was unhappy that one of his team mates qualified better than he thought he should have. It was a despicable display of spoiled selfish behavior, and poor sportsmanship. He went on to win, in an aggressive vengeful riding style. His runs were filled with dialed tricks, big air, and seemingly less than warm reception from onlookers, sensing his demeanor. My only hope is that the Hot Dog eating contest see’s some friendlier laid back competition. In stark contrast, the second place rider in the event, shared his bike with his younger brother, who’s bike had issues, during his first ever Pro contest. That was rad, and they both rode with smiles.
Shout outs to all the riders at the ECSC that set a good example for BMX, by being positive, appreciating the efforts of the event organizers, and putting on a good show, we are lucky the venue wasn’t set up with a razor scooter demo, or something awful like that, in wake of some of the lame shit some BMXer’s put on display.
FBM not only hosts events, drive around in a school bus and make stupid jokes, that no one gets, we also make a ton of Bicycle related products for everyone!
New FBM gear is available at the most awesome bike shops and mail orders worldwide and also the FBM online store!
