I recently built up a 26″ Ruff Sleeper prototype and took some pics a while ago but accidentally deleted them, so I took bae out for a date at Newport Pier and retook some pictures (which actually turned out better than the previous ones). This is the most hyped I’ve ever been on a bike, just look at this thing of beauty (them welds though). Look out for production frames coming sooner than later, more photos after the jump!
Jakob doesn’t ride FGFS anymore, but has been shredding 26″ BMX lately and killing it. Check out all these clips he’s stacked up.
Anthem sent over some of the first pictures of their new 2016 Frames including the FGFS specific “Comply” frame, and their new 26″ BMX frame titled the “FMS” (110mm rear spacing). The new models now include a top tube gusset, chainstay grind plates, and spacing for 2.5 tires as well as the same 8mm thick dropouts that accommodate up to 42mm diameter pegs. The fork will be a 405mm a2c with a 20mm rake. No details on the geometry of these frames yet, but they look killer. Stay tuned for more info and follow @anthembikeco on the gram.
As promised, Matt’s edit came out today to promote the new Ruff Bike Co. Can Rims. Its been a little while since Matt has put out his own solo edit and it’s definitely been worth the wait! You can count on him to deliver fucking quality riding and creativity that nobody else fucks with. Brakes have been trending lately but Matt is at the forefront of it and taking full advantage of it with so many insane abubacas in this edit and different tire tap combos. Personal favorite trick in this was the footplant keo variation at 4:04. Executed so perfectly. Matt can do anything from tech to huge gaps as proven in this edit. One of his best pieces to date. Don’t sleep on this one bit. SKRT
Ruff just dropped a new product simultaneously with Elliott’s newest edit called the “Can Rims“. With the declining rate of FGFS specific parts, this is just what the doctor ordered, especially with the mega-affordable price of $50 a rim. Ruff is keeping shit alive. If you need some new rims, the Ruff Can rims are just what you need. Support FGFS, SNAG EM HERE!
Here’s what WOLF DRAWN had to say about them:
“Ruff Bike Co is extremely excited to bring you the RUFF CAN RIM.

The rims come with heat treated alloy double-walled design that creates a stiff and durable wheel to be able to huck those big drops and ride away. Coming in polished silver and anodized black at a competitive price of $50.”

Randy Rush out of New York just dropped this bike check of his new Stolen Bike Co. that he turned in to an FGFS build, which I believe may be the first time that’s happened. Whip looking clean and some solid clips at the end top it off nicely.
