Dustin Lee dropped his latest video / Vlog, and the title did a great job of catching our attention. Brian Foster stopped by the Merritt warehouse to presumably dial in his bike with some new parts and catch a session on the warehouse ramps. Here’s a video giving you a look at what went down! The Brian Foster footage is from about 1:45 – 2:45 mark in the video. After that, Dustin catches an indoor session with Montana Ricky and a few others. Take a look!
A little while back we caught a sneak peek look at the 2017 Brian Foster signature complete from Fit Bike Co. and we’ve been patiently waiting for it to drop. The reason we were excited is because it’s a 22″ complete versus 20″ since it’s more comfortable for Brian and those riders who are looking for a slightly bigger bike for comfort. The 2017 22″ BF starts out with a frame with a chromoly front triangle with a 22.125″ top tube length, 74.5-degree head tube angle, 71-degree seat tube angle, 12.25″ bottom bracket height, 9″ standover height and a 14.11″ chain stay length. You can find 2-piece bars with a chromoly crossbar, 8.7″ rise and 29″ width and a full chromoly fork with a 1-piece steerer tube, tapered legs and 33mm offset, 3/8″ dropouts. The rest of this bike is decked out with Fit, S&M Bikes and Revenge parts. One small piece we’re really digging is the quick release seat post clamp, haha. We don’t see that too often… Actually, ever when it comes to BMX bikes… Which is probably why it’s so rad to see it on this particular bike. Here’s what the rest of the bike has…
Stem: Top Load
Grips: Fit Long Tech with Flanges
Cranks: Fit Indented – 175mm, 8-spline, chromoly
Sprocket: Fit Aluminum Key 25-tooth
Pedals: Fit Mac Alloy

Bottom Bracket: Sealed MID

Rear Hub: Alloy Cassette – 9-tooth

Fit Bike Co. coming through with a dialed ne BMX video featuring their whole crew getting down on spots around Hollywood. As expected with a heavy squad like this, there was plenty of amazing riding on all the spots they came across. Hit play and take it all in!
“It had been a minute since we had the PRO squad in one spot, so we decided to get the dudes together to shoot the shit and mob around LA for a few days in May.
Since this sort of thing doesn’t happen all the time, we enlisted Jeff Z. to shoot some stills and Scott Marceau to make moving pictures.
We weren’t trying to invite anybody to “Bangerville” with this one, but a few days in Hollyweird with the boys went down a treat. The takeaway from our pow wow was that we should pow wow more often, which means the FIT van may be showing up at spots near you soon – so keep ’em peeled.
Shout out to Mr. Marceau for capturing the crew!

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a few 22″ BMX bikes popping up with Faction BMX and S&M Bikes both putting a lot of work into that in-between niche market between 20″ and 24″. Today, we spotted something interesting for you 22″ fans out there. The Blue Falcon, Brian Foster, will have a signature 22″ complete from Fit Bike Co. in their 2017 complete bike range! We don’t have much detail on this yet, but it’s definitely happening. Below are a few words about the bike from Brian and how he’s feeling about the 22″ size. We’re going to chase up Chris Moeller and see if we can dig up a little more info on this bike.
“This winter a 22″ @sandmbmx ATF showed up at my door. @moeller_chris wanted me to check it out. After a few sessions with it here and there, here are my thoughts. I definitely see the appeal. It rides better at speed and is more stable when landing flat. This stability comes at a cost as it is not as nimble as a 20″. I think a 22″ makes sense for trails and large transitions. This fall, a 22″ @fitbikeco complete will be released and should raise the stoke for the generation of shredders that want to stay connected with riding. I will spend most of my time on my normal bike but this larger option will buy me a few more years of roasting in the future. Here’s a screen grab from today on the big bike.” – Brian Foster
Montana Ricky realized he was sitting on a ton of clips from sessions with guys like Tony Hamlin, Bruce Crisman, Brad Simms, Jesse Whaley, Brian Foster and a handful of others that needed a home. So, he pulled the clips off his phone and dropped them into a timeline for a solid video with some dialed riding clips and plenty of hilarious extras. Is this the Best iPhone Edit Ever? Well… It’s worth a watch.
Two in a row from Chris Moeller this morning! Here we have a look at the seat stay tubing being bent for the Brian Foster frame from Fit Bike Co. at the S&M Bikes warehouse out in California. Another one of those not so crazy videos, but still interesting to see. You would think it would be a fancier machine, but it looks to be pretty much man power, a little machine power and leverage to make it happen. It’s also interesting since this is just one small part of the frame building process. We’re loving these behind the scenes production clips!
Brian Wizmerski dropped a new BMX video online today featuring Van Homan, Brian Foster, himself and a few others cruising spots around Philadelphia over the course of 2015 that he collected on his iPhone. This has some awesome riding footage and plenty of lifestyle action to take in. Great watch from start to finish! We definitely wouldn’t mind seeing more from Wiz again!
One of our favorite sections from Fit Bike Co.‘s “Holy Fit” DVD! Check out Brian Foster bringing his signature style to trails, skateparks, street spots, full-pipes and more between the U.S and Spain for his section that is nothing short of kickass! Check this BMX video out right now! Legend.
“The one, the only, the G.O.A.T… Brian Foster! What more is there to say?
