BMX videos, photos, interviews, and everything in between…
The annual FBM Open House was a day full of DIY awesomeness. With a heavy session on ghetto rail, a tour of the FBM shop and frame building demonstration, and finally, a session at the local Ithaca park. Good times.
This years annual FBM open house went down a little earlier than previous years. With reports of possible rain in the forecast, the crew pushed on getting stuff together for an awesome day. Things started off with people rolling in pretty fast and soon enough the place was hoppin’ and people were already warming up and sending bangers. After the heavy warm up session by everyone and their brother, it was time for the DIY rail jam—featuring a rail a lot of you might recognize from the ghetto street jam. Once it was time for people to send it, unsurprisingly, things did not start off lightly. And it only got more out of hand as the day went on. The most impressive thing wasn’t really what these shredders were doing, but what they were doing it on. Once the DIY jam wrapped up, the crowd went inside the FBM shop for a quick ramp demo and a tour complete with a frame building demonstration from the head welder at the FBM shop, John Corts. To round out the day the group made their way down to the local skatepark in Ithaca, NY, where hip trains followed by hip trains and even more until it was finally time to hit the sleep cycle. I hope to provide even a glimpse of how awesome the day was with these photos from throughout the day. Thanks to Crandad, Mike Erbles, John Corts, and John Lee for making this happen and continually giving back to the BMX community.
Epic riding going down, car parts everywhere, and a piano sub-box out of a satellite dish! Aside from all of the crazy obstacles that Derek Nelson dreams in his pursuit of awesomeness, there were SUVs getting smashed up and drift cars getting jumped. A true upstate NY style jam and we wouldn't have it any other way!
On a very warm day a couple months ago, I took a very informative tour of the monolithic operation that is the ODI Grip factory. They literally churn out grips 24 hours a day, five days a week. Unreal.
With Mark Burnett and Jake Seeley meeting up with Long Beach resident Brandon Begin, we planned to film a Drop The Pin, but with a delayed start and some car issues, we were forced to keep it local. We added Zach Krejmas to the squad and then rolled out to a couple local spots and unearthed a few fresh nugs along the way.
Tom Dugan gives some narration while building up his jet black Fit/Odyssey ride—including his bike packing practices, the changes he's planning for his signature Fit frame, and he talks about his signature Odyssey Grandstand pedals, Dugan Tires, and more...
