Bump Jump crew out of Richmond, keeping it rock n roll for you kids.
Watch this video that FBM put together from their post apocolympics jam at HCS park.
We got there late as all hell but still had a great time and got to ride the park solo the next day.
The crew from POST BIKE SHOP and YOUR INN packed into Troy’s Mystery Machine for the trip up to Binghamton for FBM‘s Crazy jam at HCS Skatepark. Of course we left super late, but once we were on the road it was all good times.
We met with Greg Henry and his FUTANG CLAN up at the park, and had a big ol circle goin! Here are some stickers he blessed us with.
Goya put a lot of stickers on a lot of different things.
Member of the newly formed Merritt crew Scott McMenamin beat us up there in his car and kicked it with us all weekend as well, no sign of the Pon Digga though
Here is a video of Joby Springsteen, the welder at FBM Bike Company. It gives some insight to his life, quest for knowledge and displays some of his sculptures. And of course making high quality American Made BMX Bike Frames.
FBM is the only company putting out US made frames on the East Coast, and they have been at it fr a while, so give credit where it us due and show them some love
Eric Hennessey is so good! Here is part from FBM‘s DVD that cam out a lil bit ago, Thousand Yard Stare. The whole video is awesome and his part is killer with lots of awesome tricks at high speed.
this is the 500th post on the new site. RIP TAG
Here is a really cool video with a bunch of old footage of Bob Scerbo, Mike Tag, Ralph Sinisi, George Dossantos, and a whole bunch more people. Riding everything from Street to Trails, Parks, and Pools.
As you probably know Mike Tag has been diagnosed with cancer and if you would like to help him out FBM had a fund set up for him.
Here is a video of FBM’s set up from Interbike in Vegas. This video of Crandall going over all the new goods is mad funny, and you should def check it out. I will be adding a bunch of new FBM stuff in the next few days so look for that in the ONLINE STORE
I am on my way out of vegas and on route back to NYC. Las Vegas is a crazy city with Casinos bigger than normal blocks, and layed out like mazes so you can’t find a way out. You can also stay drinking in the street at all hours of the night, nothing really closes, and yet somehow there is no garbage around.
I had a fun time and got to see a bunch of homies from Portland and elsewhere, so chill with NY people, and meet new friends. Even though vegas gets old super fast, it was still a real good time being out there.
Big thanks to John, Steve, and Brett at FBM for letting me crash as well as Chet and the WTP guys for letting me crash second night haha.
Expect a few pics soon from the trip!
I am making some more adjustments to THE ONLINE STORE and it is down again for another day or two, look for some new T’s, New FBM bars, Animal parts, and more when it goes back up!
Here are some more pics from our trip upstate. Some of from the comp and some are from chilling.
Stew Johnson won the giant size 66 Vans sneaker that was in the $20 Raffle. People probably wanted this more than any other prize that was up for grabs.
The Pon Digga was out tryin to relive 2000. J Finagle can’t find a straddle cable! This genius had the great idea of putting 3 bikes and 3 people inside of a mini cooper instead of using the bike rack.
Rob Dolecki was shredding at Bakers with Digglestein. He was killing all the lines there no problem.
Pon Digga is now doin it for Albert St. I shot a whole bunch of pics inside of the FBM Machine Shop in Binghamton, so look for those coming soon.
There is also a bunch of stuff going down this week, like the BULLDOG BIKES PARTY on Thursday Night at the Union Square Ballroom, and a slew of events related to the BIKE FILM FESTIVAL which is this weekend as well.
The day after the jam we went out to Bakers Acres, which are Kelly Baker’s personal trails out on a huge piece of property that he owns. The place is amazing, just tons of woods and a HUGE area with a lot of different lines to ride, even a huge curved wall, and a bunch of other cool shit. We chilled for a little bit and I shot a couple of pics, more to come tomorrow.
FBM had a really fun jam last weekend up at East Shore Skatepark. A ton of people came out to raise money for Mike Tag who was recently diagnosed with cancer. There were raffles all day, food, beverages, riding, and fun all over! They ended up raising over $3,ooo during the day which will go to medical bills.
This weekend, we made it up to the Mike Tag Cancer Benefit Jam in Ithaca, NY at EAST SHORE SKATEPARK. Me Brett and Austin the Pon Digga packed 3 bikes, 3 people, and a bunch of random stuff into a Mini Cooper and hit the road.
This car was packed to the brim with people, bikes, shit talking, and good times. Brett and Pon Digga up front, with me lurking the back seat.
Big Thanks to John Lee, Steve Crandall, Kelly Baker, and the rest of the FBM crew, as well as all the Richmond dudes, upstate locals, and anyone else we chilled with over the weekend.
No thanks to Cancer, flat tires, and the dandy market by bakers acres!
