John Lee, known by many as the nicest dude in BMX, possibly on the entire east coast, is still recovering from a gnarly crash, as reported a few weeks ago…
We had set up a fundraiser for him in which the BMX community came together like gangbusters to rally for John, which will help him finically, but has been even more valuable as a show of support, letting him know how much people care about him, and his well being.
Since the accident, John has undergone major surgery and weeks of follow up with the specialists, and he reports he is slowly starting to regain feeling in his face, meaning the nerves are reconnecting, and swelling has gone down to where he can start to breath through his nose again.
We are stoked to welcome John Back to FBM in the coming weeks as he continues to recover- until then check out John’s Progress on Instagram- THE SMOOTHIE CRIMINAL!

So long Asshole.
In January we took the FBM Fun Bus to Tampa Florida to attend the second stop of the FL BMX series, hosted by BMX Legend Dave Brumlow, with the help of Matt Coplon, and the backing of an entire community of Florida riders…
Over 150 kids were entered to compete, and literally hundreds of riders were on hand to hang out at a great event that seemed somewhat unnoticed by the BMX Industry outside of Florida, and done largely independent of outside help or money. True grit and dedication to BMX, making it a genuinely radical BMX series for riders, and by riders.
This event seemed to transcend riding styles, trends, fashions, generations, and more to bring together riders from all walks of life to simply enjoy a good weekend filled with bikes.
Mike hinkins has a great write up On Dig BMX about the BMX phenomenon in Florida, check it out.

Hike through a forest, sleep under the stars, Watch First Blood, take a road trip, eat over a fire, have fun every day, get stoked.
Hold the door for an old lady, help a grom fix a flat tire, do bike advocacy, for shared spaces and places to ride, make a pile of bikes outside of a pizza place, put mousetraps in your friends sleeping bags.
Get stoked when your friends do something cool, leave your phone at home once in a while, give a meter maid the middle finger, laugh at yourself now and again, or at a fart joke.
Stick your head out of a moving car window, sing along to the radio, play with a dog, skid through a puddle, get a sandwich at Shortstop, make a zine, share a good book with a friend, pedal no where in particular.
