The Sword’s the Word

Man, it is a FBM weekend around here at the Roots.

Here’s my latest build. Yep, its single speed, 39/16 gearing in the back. So smooth and fun to roll on, and built with a BMX flair and BMX parts I had around.

FBM Sword 58cm frame
Giant forkĀ 
Swobo seat
Swobo post

Profile seatpost clamp
Easton low rise mtb bars
Fly Ruben Alcantara grips (of course!)
No name stem

Formula sealed hubs
Serfas tires
39T Tree sprocket
16T BMX freewheel
White chain

Spurnic 175mm cranks
Wellgo pedals (switching to Odyssey)

Ride to the record store tonight and loved bombing the hill. No the ride up, well, I was cursing, Yosimitie Sam style.

For those of you in the Pacific Northwest, be sure to check out Revolution Cycles. They’re in my neighborhood, and hooked me up with the wheels, tires, bars, chain and some last-minute necessities. They’re big supporters of the BMX scene around here.
