    Are you affiliated with the company?

    Yes, I am the owner. This is however my personal ride. I just received the frame yesterday and plan to build it up. I hope to hit the skatepark in a day or so. I will post pics of that when I can. We have this awesome concrete bowl that I ride my BMX bike in and I am very curious to know how a 26" handles the park.

    Just sharing my experience like anyone else. Why do you ask?

    It bears mentioning that you are affiliates when discussing a company.

    Sure, I can do that.

    But as a rider and a person who doesn't always want to be "working" I do sometimes enjoy riding, posting, and being excited about things just like everyone else without acting as a sales rep or some other sorts.

    I started a rider owned company, after leaving QBP, so I can get away from the traditional marketing and rep like lifestyle that I mostly don't agree with. I grew tired of almost the entire bicycle industry outsourcing production to overseas too.

    This isn't my bread and butter. I enjoy doing it because I love bicycles and believe we should be creating jobs and the ability to manufacture here in our homeland, not sending all the skills, labor, and now design overseas.

    I am not your typical company owner. I am a rider just like everyone else here......and I love the sport just like everyone else here. Thus I don't want to bring my job with me everywhere I go....

    I understand, but some feel it would be deceitful or at the minimum, a dishonest representation. The frame looks rockin!

    However, I do specify that I own f-bom bikes in my profile. So if people feel that way, then it is their own issue for not checking........I should not have to always specify who I am. It is right there and I have nothing to hide.......just sayin'.

    Don't be obtuse about it. Represent yourself honestly when you're hawking your wares.

    In all honesty, I have f-bom as my logo, I have f-bom as my signature, I have that I am the owner of f-bom bikes in my profile........I really don't think I am being very obtuse.

    Moving along now so I can enjoy riding and posting about what I like doing and the cool stuff that I get whether it's f-bom or not.

    Here is the build so far. I have yet to get cranks on it.

    I had an Eastern hub with a 14mm spindle and this frame has a 10mm slot. So I am modifying the axle to fit so I can run the 11t driver on the Eastern hub. This will allow me to run a 23 tooth up front and have the nice micro drive I like to run on my 20" BMX bike. More clearance and it's nice to have the sprocket out of the way when riding the skateparks and such.

    I plan to hit up Ray's in Milwaukee with this bad boy soon.

    100mm travel fork. Since I am not the build guy, I don't know what the exact axle to crown was used to determine 69 degrees. I do know 100mm travel offset is about 455mm A/C. I think what most people don't put into consideration is sag.....and we account for that. So a suspension fork may have 470mm or so A/C.......but with sag it drops 15 to 20mm.

    I will find out the exact A/C used and post when I find out.

    Finished it up today. Did a little riding around the hood, some good block long manuals and such to get a good feel for it.

    The short rear end really makes this thing pop! Bunnyhops, a couple of boosts off some good curbs......yeah, I can't wait to hit the DJs and skatepark!

    For the record, it's built with an expected 450mm axle to crown.....so my guess was 5mm off....
