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.

'A person’s motivation reveals a lot about them. and I wanted to find out more about what motivates the one and only Steve Crandall beyond what we know of him with FBM. Always creating and enjoying things with the community that he surrounds himself with, Crandall’s intentions through life are pure, and his actions reflect that. He holds BMX values as a foundation and that spreads into every aspect of his life. Whether he’s coasting a big bike down a hill, digging in the dirt, or painting a coffee cup, it all comes from the same place and for the same reasons. This short film was shot in early April 2018 and documents Crandall in Richmond VA dealing with his first ever solo art show, and his preparation for the show 6 hours north in his hometown of Ithaca NY.' - Kenny Horton
