For sure. I started riding BMX in the late 90's, but BMX media was never really a thing with me and my friends... I honestly never realized all of the cool shit FBM was doing until I started using Vital.

FBM deserves nothing but the highest level of respect for what they've done for the BMX community. The passion a lot of members on here have for the brand (over my time here) really shows how influential & legendary FBM truly is.

A lot of dirt tires these days are actually more of an "all-terrain" and actually do really well on street/ park. Here's some examples: S&M Mainline tire 2.4 or 2.1 (actual inflated size of 2.1 is 2.24) Fit FAF 2.25Relic Flyout 2.4(smaller rear is coming out later this ... more »

For me it would be Mike Hoder. He joined S&M in 2010 and imo has personified what having fun on a 20" BMX should be like in the past decade.

Yep, I'm completely aware of this. Proper weld "penetration" is way more important than "aesthetics". Still it kinda sucks when you buy a $400+ USA made frame and the first thing people say is "those welds look like shit".

I've seen some really nice welds on Taiwan frames also. With my luck though, I'd probably get one that's just "meh", or one that has nice welds, but shit penetration. Another thing about Taiwan frames is there's no for sure way of knowing where the tubing ... more »

Why don't you send FBM an email to see if it's true? lol I'm pretty sure S&M stopped doing customs to focus more on production frames... Maybe FBM is going to do the same? *Edit: Nvm, their website says "out of stock" under custom frames...
