FBM posted up a couple questions with Ruel Smith. Olympic swimming is serious business.
If you caught Tom Blyth‘s interview we had on here a few weeks ago, then you would have saw that we talked a little bit about his new signature Bellwitch frame from FBM. I was still real curious about the frame, so I got ahold of Steve Crandall to see if he could give us the low down. Steve was down, so I asked him a whole bunch of questions about the newest frame to their line up and this is what he had to say. I wonder if their new heat-treating process will catch on…
“This Jam was held in honor of raising money to benefit Mike Tag’ and his rising medical costs that go along with his recent diagnosis with Stage ll Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. All in all the day was a success, raised a good amount of money, had a good time and shredded like there was no tomorrow.
Look for a full edit on ESPN soon.

Just a reminder to get your ass to Ithica on Jun 18th!
“As some of you might know, Our Good friend, and one of the guys that helped start FBM, Mike Tag was diagnosed with Stage 2 lymphoma recently. MIke is currently in Chemotherapy, unable to work, and does not have health insurance.
We are actively working to raise money, and the response and support has been amazing, so thanks to everyone who has already helped out!
On June 18th we are having a jam in Mike’s hometown, Ithaca NY, where it all began for FBM 18 years ago.
We will be doing, events, raffles, bands will be playing, and so on…
We hope to do some raffles, and give out prizes to the younger riders.
If anyone has the capacity to make even the smallest donation towards the fundraising raffle, it would be greatly appreciated.
We are also asking if you guys could help circulate this flyer, the more people we can cram into the skatepark, and the parking lot outside, the better.
If you do send anything, please do so by june 15th,
and send it to

Tom Blyth is one of those guys who, prior to this interview, I didn’t know much about or what to expect when I sent over questions. I know he kills it on a bike and that he is into music. I also know that being on FBM means it’s required that you need to know how to have a good time. That was really about it. Coming out of the interview I’ve come to find out a whole lot more about the guy that surprised me and that he’s a lot more than what you might expect by looking at him and his riding. Take a look at what he had to say, a bunch of photos from Steven Crandall and Joe Cox, and some of Tom’s past edits, then leave him some love in the comments! This one turned out awesome…
