I can do a post about all the new product we receive in the shop on a daily basis. Like the 2017 Kink Complete Bikes or the new 2016 FBM Steadfast Frames with updated geometry. Plus all the numerous parts from Profile, Cult, S&M, Odyssey, Sunday, Fit etc.... but instead this is a post about how rad BMX and the community that surrounds it really is.
If Crandall and the FBM boys are hosting a weekend jam, you bet your ass that we are trying to get some people together and make the journey. So lets hop in a van and make our way down 95 to RVA for the Lost Bowl Jam and Battle at Gillies Creek.
We loaded up the van and made the late night trip to RVA. Driving all night and arriving at 6am is the only way to get it done. I think I slept a total of 8 hours in 3 days. So worth it!! We had 11 of us that made the trek down. Henry,Cody,Brit and Gazeagle went in separate cars.
Lost Bowl is the ultimate concrete backyard paradise. You never have to mow the lawn here.

Mandatory parking lot hangs. Break out the banjo and harmonica and get to jamming.
Van Homans' roots are in BMX racing and it shows. He's no stranger to the dirt. Garrett Byrnes in tow. Always a treat watching some legendary dudes ride, especially these two.
This is Cody Diggle, international stud on and off the bike. He can't dance because his forearms are too big but he can go 3 feet higher than anyone else out there. He didn't win "Dude of the Day" for nothing!!
This is me going 4 feet lower than Cody, I wasn't even sure if I'd be riding on this trip due to my body falling apart but watching everyone shred makes the pain go away. Now its back and I have few extra grey's from this trip!! Thanks for the memories!! Photo- Crandaddy
Heres a FBM edit form Saturdays Lost Bowl Jam. Can't thank everyone involved with this weekend enough for making this happen. Especially Pat that owns the Lost Bowl, not many Skaters would allow a BMX Party on their pristine concrete setup but he does.
So this is my side of BMX. Friendship and Memories!! You can get started on it by picking up a bike!! Its pretty RAD!!
