News: 50 Limited edition Night Train frames available. Proceeds go to a good cause. By FBM
When FBM started in 1993, it was nothing more than a simple journey amongst a few teenage friends who loved riding bikes. Along the way the company grew into something awesome and one rider in the group began to shine as someone special in the BMX community; it was Mike Tagliavento from Ithaca, NY although many knew him simply as Tag or Mike Tag! As one of the founding members, and a huge part of the
development of FBM, Mike earned the honor of getting the first pro model frame we built in house, the Night Train.
Mike passed this year, but his legacy lives on and he will forever be in our hearts. We are proud to present a limited edition of 50 Night Train frames in 2012 as tribute to our great friend, and a legendary rider!
All proceeds from the sale of the Limited Edition Night Train frame will be donated to the Ithaca Skatepark Fund to be used to improve and expand the park. After constuction is complete, a memorial to Mike will be installed at the park.
