FBM’s Thousand Yard Stare was one of my favorite DVDs of the year and Kenny Horton’s section is about as metal as they come. The first few clips will get your gut wrenching…

“I needed a travel bike but didn’t have the money for a custom frame. So Megan at Moth Attack just put S&S Couplers on my FBM Sword.”
Fucking Electric Wizard!

In fact, Kyle’s Sword has led me to pick one up and probably do the same thing. I wanted a beat-it-to-hell track bike to travel with and lock up at bars / wheelie / thrash around on but I didn’t want to go with a Taiwanese bike. I had completely forgotten about the FBM Sword (as has most of the world). Maybe it’s time for a little Sword resurgence? Made in the USA. Built by dudes who like to party and infused with dragon blood.
And of course Megan at Moth Attack is putting S&S on this beast.
FBM has been on a media blitz while I’ve been in Indo. Starting with this video in the American Hand series, featuring Joby Springsteen, the builder of these noble bicycles. And for those wanting to see some Kenny Horton shredding, check out two videos below, they’re just what you need to get your stoked-meter pushing into the red.
I don’t care what wheel size or bicycle you fancy, this should make you want to go on a road trip with your friends. But that’s FBM for ya. The Vagabond Ritual is a new DVD coming out from the Faith Brethern Ministries, so expect this and a lot more.
On a related note, to keep America’s birthday week strong, FBM are now offering custom frames again (that’s a great photo Crandall) and if you can’t afford a custom frame, then why not try to win a Holeshot sprocket on Facebook?
Cransylvania Hunger from Fluffy Bunny Metal sent over as much metal as he could pack into an email with the 2012 Gypsy 2′s new look and Mr. Eric “Witch Hammer” Hennessey’s section from Thousand Yard Stare. Check that out below.
Support American-made bicycle manufacturers. And beer. Lots of beer.
If I didn’t already have a bitchin’ BMX frame, I would consider getting one of the new Tom Blyth FBM models. Dubbed the Bellwitch, these street-ready frames are made in the USA for an ass-kicking goodtime, no matter where you are.
To get you pumped, here’s Tom’s section from Thousand Yard Stare. It’s one of my favorites on the DVD.
