I LOVE MY BICYCLE: THE STORY OF FBM BIKES
USA 2009 | HDV 75 min.
Dir. Joe Stakun
In reaction to big business BMX companies in the early 90's, 17-year-old Steve Crandall started a company of his own called Fat Bald Men (FBM). What began as selling t-shirts out of a backpack has turned into one of the most well respected DIY bicycle companies around. Through fortune and misfortune, the film follows FBM through their 15 years of mayhem as told by Crandall and the rest of the BMX bicycle community from close friends to influential icons like Dave Mirra and Mat Hoffman.
