No doubt Instagram is one of our favourite social media tools. It's simple, free of annoying commercials and let's face it, a photo tells a thousand words. We've been in this game for a couple of years showing pics that come from the old box, or photos that make it on the Instagram page before it does on the actual FATBMX.com site.

Stolen has teamed up with Multicam to create this one of a kind 24” BMX cruiser. The bike has been donated to Crye Precision’s annual SHOT Show silent auction, which benefits various Military Special Operations charities. We at Stolen were excited when presented with the opportunity to work with the amazing people at Crye/Multicam, especially for such a noble cause. We started this project just over a month ago and partnered with American Firearms in La Habra, Californa who Hydrographically dipped the frame, fork and bar in the Multicam pattern, provided by Crye Precision. Multicam provided some 500d heavy-duty material for our handmade Pivotal seat. Spartan Village of Gainesville, Virgina stepped up and donated our custom StlnBikes/Multicam/Infared headtube patch with an amazing 24 hour turn around (thanks Vic).
We would like to thank everyone involved in making this happen and are truly honored to have been a part of this project.
