American BMX Company (ABC) signed a long-term licensing agreement with Jeff Bottema, adding the iconic BMX fork brand Jeff Bottema Forks to its portfolio. ABC recently announced it bought Race Inc. Quality BMX Products, another legendary old school BMX brand. Bottema is a BMX racing legend whose career spanned the mid-1970s through the mid-1980s. In 1979, he launched Jeff Bottema Forks with a heavy-duty fork design that featured thicker tubing and legs that extended about one inch below the dropouts. The look was unique, and the forks immediately found a place in the booming BMX market. Unfortunately, a series of relationships with shady business partners doomed the fork along with Bottema’s dream of having his own company.
When someone says influencer, today many think of social media and the individuals that promote products, lifestyles, and health and fitness. However there are other influencers, the ones that helped your growth, ones that have helped you become the person that you are today. Your friends, neighbors, even your family have a major impact on your life.
It's never good to hear a BMX company has to close their business. A company is started for the love of BMX and getting to be creative and make products that you and your riders think are the best possible products out there. On top of that getting to travel with friends to spots all over the place and film videos and create content is one of the bigger reasons to keep the brand going. At Mutiny they've now come to the point that the plug had to be pulled and all that's left are memories of the past 22 years. Find their official statement in the image.
Luckily they've got enough good videos to look at of stylish timeless riding. We would advise you to look up a few today.
Another BMX job is available. That makes it two warehouse jobs that need filling in one week. This one comes in from Blackout Distro in the USA. If that's closer to home for you I would definitely look into the possibility. BMX jobs don't come around every day.

American BMX Company (ABC), is excited to announce the acquisition of Race Inc. Quality BMX Products, from Chris Hancock. ABC will relaunch the brand with an eye on pushing the limits of BMX innovation and design. ABC, based in Montreal, is owned by Marc Côté, a businessman and entrepreneur with a background in robotic engineering, film and television VFX. Like many BMX company owners dating back to the sport’s beginning, Côté is the parent of kids who race BMX. He also raced in the 1980s, coincidentally, on a Race Inc. RA-7, which he still has.
“Life takes us all on a ride. But life’s many obligations can pull us away from our roots. My roots are in BMX. As a father, I had the pleasure of watching my boys riding, jumping and racing BMX bikes. Watching them ride, my own past came back to me,” Côté said.
“Being around BMX again reignited my passion and, more important, reminded me that my 10 years in BMX gave me more than fun. BMX fostered in me things I have carried into every aspect of my life—my

Paul's Boutique BMX: In my backyard I built a small shed to put the bikes on display, a small shed for Parts/Maintenance/hangout where I had to get my motorcycle out first before a customer could see the parts etc. hahaha. Then first floor in the house was for clothing en the second floor was the

FBM started out as a crew. Just some friends stoked on bikes. Through our curiosity and bike riding fueled smiles, we ended up as a full fledged bike company. Unfortunately, as of January 1st we have closed the machine shop and FBM will no longer manufacture bikes. This has been an unbelievably tough decision and we explored multiple options to maintain business as usual but we simply aren’t able to keep moving forward under existing model. That being said, we can’t thank everyone enough for being a part of FBM and helping us get this far in the world. The FBM Machine Shop opened in 2001 and built some of the best parts in BMX for 18 amazing years. You helped us build fun and share the message of community, positivity and DIY good times and we appreciate the support more than I even know how to express.
