I don’t have a kid but part of me wants to buy this frame anyway, just so when I do have a kid, they’ll have a piece of American steel to ride around on. If you have a son or a daughter that could fit on this 12″ BMX from FBM, I suggest you pick it up!
Mikey Luplow is one of the most metal motherfuckers in BMX right now. His signature Mutiny frame, the Doom Wizard is out in August and in prep for the summoning, he and Cody Nutter have been working on the right incantations. Which, at the moment seems to be absolutely crushing the streets of Austin, Texas. I can’t wait to see what these two cook up…
It’s so nice to be able to check out vimeo now and what a video to lead into the week.
“Vagabond Ritual is an FBM feature film, with some of the most colorful characters in BMX traveling to and riding some of the best spots; Kona, Philly, NYC, Little Rock, Austin, Tucson, Sasquatch Canyon and Beyond! Get in the van and see what happens when Ruel Smith, Kenny Horton, the Ginch Bros, Jackson Allen, Eric Hennessey and the FBM crew and friends let loose on America’s freeways…”
Over the years, I’ve established what many would consider a “relationship” with Steve Crandall from FBM. Sure, some of it has to do with his latest videos, or products but most of it boils down to our mutual, vested, stokedness on bikes. FBM is one of those brands that never will, nor have ever had it easy. They’re not all driving sports cars, or hanging with SoCal bikini babes in hot tubs in their condos but they’re still living the life that many of us would consider meaningful and honest. And I don’t know that they would even want that lifestyle.
While I’m not as into BMX as the next guy, I can appreciate good company and that’s what I always get from Steve. Well, that and a bunch of crushed beer cans and leather jackets. I shot these two photos at House Park one day, before we rode to get cupcakes and I like to think that both of us are happy with how they turned out.
The fourth installment of Kenny Horton’s (I hate that guy) web series for FBM is live and in your face. Don’t miss this one!
“Produced by Kenny Horton, featuring FBM Riders, and friends including Space Needle,Tom Blyth, Latane Coghill, Eric Holladay, Neil Hise, Jason Anderson, Ruel Smith, Chris Neighbors, Jackson Allen, Bob Quirk, John Held, Costa, Ginch, Chunk. Evan Venditti, Eric Hennessey, Darryl Nau, Kenny Horton and more…”
