A few years back, to help Stephen Murray, FBM offered custom frames and some of the proceeds would go to the Stephen Murray fund. Custom frames being something they normally didn’t do.
Now however, they’ve launched this really cool custom “frame builder” order form. Basically you can pick and choose between all available frame styles and “feature” detail FBM have ever produced. And also pick your frame geometry and tubing size & gauge (within limits) to set up your dream frame.
I think the list of options and range of geometry is rather impressing. Most riders looking to get their own unique frame should be able to find the options they want there, as long as it’s not something completely out there.
Here’s an interview with Big Dave about the custom frame deal.

A while back I made this post about a couple of custom bikes built around Simple frames. Not long after one of them showed up in issue # 15 of Focalpoint Magazine as a print ad for Hell On Wheels in Sydney. It’s definately one of the coolest ad’s I’ve seen in a long tome and I’ve been meaning to post about it for a quite some time but just never got around to it. But here it is — Finally!
It recently came to my knowledge that chainless internet hero Liam Fahy-Hampton’s runs not one, but two (2) eject hubs! He runs two front wheels, both with Eject hubs and has drilled and tapped one of the axles to take a 12mm stud for extra strength use in the back. Liam rides without a drivetrain and that’s just plain insane!
