We've got some new FATBMX.com advertisements coming up. You will find them in the new RIDE BMX, DIG, Freedom and Pusher magazines. Here's ad two in a series of three. That's Mientje and our Mom throwing the Slayers at the FAT-JAM Heavy Metal party in OJA. They're not afraid to rock as you can see. Be on the look out for the new ads. Those magazines who are interested in becoming a FATBMX partner, feel free to get in touch.
Damn, Hell, Shit, Devil, the FATBMX server crashed yesterday. Not only did this mean that you couldn't check out the site yesterday, they had only backed up the site from 4 November.
This means that 12 days of uploads are gone and since that takes a couple of hours a day to do, this boy is pissed. What makes me even pissed off is that I have not saved any text and deleted all of the re-sized pics. This blows.
I hope you enjoyed it while it was up. If there is a lawyer out there who can help us sue Orion for a few million.... get in tough. Yeah right.
We apologize to everyone for the inconvenience. We'll try to get some articles back up again and continue from there.
At FATBMX we do some things backwards. Instead of promoting the hell out of our new t-shirts and sell them online before they are even printed, we get rid of them first and then put the new design on the website. Deamer designed the new T-shirt and like I said, there are only a few left. You can contact Paul at Paul's Boutique to see what sizes are not sold out. The colour of the shirt will be black. That's the only colour that Coach will wear. That bike in the picture is actually Pete Fastinetto's wethepeople. The pic was taken at "Pete's Ditch" and Deamer got to work with it.
When Lance Armstrong's wristbands came on the market I didn't expect much of it. Before I knew it though, I saw loads of people wear those yellow bracelets. It didn't take long before the copycats thought they could cash in on this. We've seen pretty much any colour of the rainbow by now. Enter Mat Hoffman. When he was asked to make some art for a wristband, he had some doubts too. But the Condor was also asked to pick two good causes
We've done some wacky ads and this one isn't much better. That's what you get when you're working deep in the night to reach RIDE UK's deadline the next morning. Anyway, check it out and remember the ad when you see it in the next RIDE. We've used a few celebrities in this one so we hope they won't sue us for money. That would suck, having to pay extra to place an ad. We just want to keep reminding you on our website. Maybe you should bookmark it now and put it on your favorite list before you forget. That way you don't have to type it in all the time.
Hey Folks, on 29 and 30 October 2005 The Parano*Garage Lumberjack Contest will take place at the Skate Hall Aurich again.
This year there is also a new bowl and a new miniramp in the skate hall in Aurich, Germany. We are expecting many riders from all over Germany and the countries next to Germany.
What kind of lumberjack games we are planning this year? We won`t tell you here, but we can tell about the contest modus for the A-class this year: It`s 2 men tag-team time. The B-class will have a normal contest modus. Also: bowl-contest in jam session format.
We don't have a forum on FATBMX (too much thrash talking) but you can participate in the polls that we are putting on from time to time. We have a new one up and running and you can see the results of the old one right here:
Those riders who are living on the Northern hemisphere are feeling that the winter is coming up. In our new poll we'd like to ask you how you kill some time when it's freezing outside and the snow is coming down. Check as many boxes as you like:
Talk at events is not about BMX only any more. Since the birth of our son Philip "priorities have changed" as they say. Pics are shown, videos are played on the phone and experiences are exchanged. It's hard to understand for those who are not there (yet). Believe me, once the kid is there, you'll fit right in with those who are living the same life.
Philip was born on 26 November 2003 so he's about to become two years old.
To celebrate their tenth successful year NASS2006 will be taking place at the NEC Birmingham, witness the biggest action sports event and expo ever seen in Europe, they bring this unique event to the very heart of the country where a staggering 50,000 visitors will be able to visit the showâ€¦
And what a show it’s going to be!
