In times where websites go overboard with hundreds of flashing buttons and pop-up banners, it's nice to see a company go back to the basics. FIT Bike Co. has done that which makes the new site easy to navigate. You get what you want by clicking the buttons on the top. Simple as that. Their news section is one to follow. All the latest regarding FIT is posted here. They already have the Bunnyhop results up from the Backyard Jam which was won by FIT rider Tom White (44 inches) followed by FIT's Edwin Delarosa (43 inches).

We've started a WIN ON FATBMX block on the site that you can find in the right column. The first competition was the Eastpak Antidote comp and the next competition is the FLAT tv contest. No, you can't win a FLAT screen TV (hey, we should ask LG about that one) but you can win one of the three dope FLAT TV DVD's provided by Renato.
The FATBMX-Eastpak Antidote Compeition is won by Peer

There's no denying that Mat Hoffman is a legend in BMX terms. Maybe even in the real world when people see what he has accomplished on a BMX bike. In the same league as Mat but then on the skateboard side of things, Tony Hawk is an icon as well. I remember back in 1996 I was in a taxi with both of them over in Zurich, Switzerland. The Freestyle.ch event was just over and we were on our way to the night festivities. I had a reality check right there; look at me, in a taxi with these two in Switzerland, what's going on??!!
Earlier this summer both of them were hired by the Nass/LG people to do demos over in England. That's 10 years later and they were still doing their thing in front of a big crowd that absolutely went nuts whenever they rolled in. They had their doubles down after all these years of doing big events together all over the planet. Two legends on the ramp at the same time, it doesn't get much better than that.
