We got this.

That there is just a simple reminder…

Hi there, and good day to you.

Firstly, being bike dorks as we are, as I’m sure you all know, Ibis is a hugely popular bicycle brand who after many incarnations now is located in Santa Cruz, California;

Likewise, as I’m sure you know, an Ibis is also a bird;

Well, Handsome AK sent an email somewhat relating to both;


Does Scot Nicol know about this?


I Tweeted it at them to make sure he does.

So, have you seen this video yet?

I’d like to share some points of note however-

Just before almost falling-the-hell-off the bridge he was crossing;

the guy did a sick skid;

And then these guys took a nap;

Cheese-o, Pete.

Sick skiiiidddzzzz for everybody;

It’s like 2007 all over again.

Finally before we part ways, I’ll include an email from the dear Cranpa of FBM infamy;


Our protest from here on out will to be the grown ass dudes on kids bikes advocating for quality U.S. Manufacturing, doing cool shit and listening to Evacuate by Negative Approach.

Cool new FBM Vert video, check it out!

Come visit our warehouse this summer. Share if you care, and thanks!

– Cran

That Cranpa has some fun parties. And perhaps after all of these years of making threats about it, maybe I’ll get out there to the HQ this summer after all. I mean… Hanging out with a bunch of folks who are far more adept at fighting the effects of gravity than I am? What could possibly go wrong?;

In closing, I’ll share a final thought relating to all of this, while at the same time not relating to it at all. Though some days we might just be holding on by our fingertips, we’re still holding on, and as long as we’re together, that’s better than the alternative.

Spread this like it's sick

    the song about birds almost made me shoot coffee out my nose (already know better than to drink anything watching FBM video).
    p.s. a full body cast with the middle fingers extended maybe?

    Ibis Song, excellent work. Having a finishing straight include crossing a creek with a 30 foot drop, not excellent work.

    2:00 into the Bird video = yea! But, how did they get so many pictures of Ibis’ dumpster-diving? Were they stalking the damn birds?
