The story of FBM Bike Co.
Here’s a Flashback Friday for you. FBM re-upped the “I Love My Bicycle: The Story of FBM” documentary style movie by Joe Stakun that was originally released in 2009. This features a ton of BMX legends and a lot of amazing stories about the brand and how it had influenced the industry and their personal lives. Although this movie is a little over 8 years old, the message is still the same and FBM have done an amazing job of staying true to what they are all about and continue to do so! Hit play and enjoy!
In reaction to the big business run companies of BMX in the early 90’s, 17-year-old Steve Crandall started a company of his own called Fat Bald Men (FBM). What began as selling t-shirts out of a backpack has turned into one of the most well respected DIY bicycle companies around. Through fortune and misfortune follow FBM through their 15 years of mayhem as told by Steve Crandall and the rest of the BMX bicycle community from close friends to influential Icons like Dave Mirra and Mat Hoffman.”
