“FBM IS FUCKING AWESOME! I SAW ONE OF THOSE GUYS THROW A WHOLE BED OUT A HOLIDAY INN ONCE!” – A conversation I had with a stoked midwestern local last night!

Here are 16 photos from GNARRBORO, a sketchy jam in the parking lot of Back Alley Bikes in Carrboro North Carolina.
Super badass, grass roots Bike shop jam, great people, good vibes, crazy ramps, individual creativity, and a strong community of awesomeness.
Thanks So much for sharing your parking lot with everyone and making a sunday in May rad as hell!
I heard Chuck Dukowski say something to the effect that humanity’s biggest gains are about group efforts, that if an individual can find a group of people the same enthusiasm and hard work, there can be incredible productivity. I felt like it related to FBM, and the people involved pretty hard.
Between the guys in house at FBM HQ, the team, and the FBM crew at large, we have all managed to make our own lives a little bit better through friendships, bikes, and making our own way.
Seriously, I get humbled when I look around me and see the people who share our ideals, our efforts, people who work hard, and not to be compensated by traditional means, but to be a part of something better, a community, a community of artists, builders, musicians, and more, who share a passion, and an attitude for the DIY culture.
Without that, FBM would not exists, as a business, we are tiny, limited financially, as a group of like minded bohemians, we are rich beyond compare, with a kind of currency not everyone will understand.
On that note, on behalf of FBM, I just want to say, THANK YOU to all parties involved. Let there be DeAh!
Here are two crucial photos I shot this weekend of Rob Dolecki, one is of him boosting a DIY backyard pool, and another with a genuine smile, arm resting on the handlebars between runs, one of the cool tricks you might not ever notice from a BMXER.
Rob is an asset to the BMX community, as a photographer he is one of the most talented, and one of the few who make BMX look REALLY cool, his photos are RAD! More importnatly Rob Dolecki is an all around badass, and a good dude.
His attitude and perspective are pretty inspiring.
Check out a few of Robs photos below and hit up his website to learn more.
The Architecture of rebellion, some of the last acts of defiance, taking whats left behind from the rest of the world, and making your own interpretation of it.
BMXer’s specialize in repurposing the architecture of modern society…
Here are some photo from some weekday exploration with Eric Holladay and Latane Coghill. Fullpipes are awesome,hard to find, often harder to ride. The thrill of the hunt!
John Corts is a beast, simplest way to put it, as head welder at FBM, he works hard, rides equally hard and is exceptional at both. From a working class background John knew early on he wanted to become a welder, and at age 14 had already decided he wanted to make a career out of welding bikes. Through BMX, he has realized his passions for fabrication, and travel, as John says, his two great educators. Here is a self produced edit of John, his brother and his friends traveling and riding FBM built bikes!
The Reptile Lord, From Parts unknown, AKA, Gary Ginch from St.Louis, area, AKA Gerrett Guilliams from Waterloo Illinois, sent over this edit from his adventures in trannies, from dirt and park in the midwest and beyond. Titles simply- “Gary Ginch edit of BMX”, the riding is amazing, Garrett is a soul rider through and through, one of the greats!
ROCK N ROLL BMX!
