Joe loves FBM. It was like a dream come true when he started riding for them through 4down distribution, seriously. He wouldn’t shut up about it! It’s rad how much it meant to him, and it’s rad how long the frame has lasted him already.

For the last few years, Joe has been one of those dudes who puts out a new edit every few months. He continues to kill it on his classy-looking FBM steed but 2017 has been a bit different for content collection. See below to find out more.

Joe热爱着FBM这个品牌。对他来说能够通过4down代理公司为FBM效力简直是美梦成真。Joe能够喋喋不休的向你讲述这对他来说意味着什么,也会告诉你他的那台车架是有多么的耐用。

在过去的几年中,Joe和许多职业车手一样,每隔几个月就会放出一部个人视频。他一直在用他自己的经典FBM爱车谋杀着菲林,大家来看看他的这部爱车配置吧:

– What’s the bike riding like at the minute?

现在你的车骑起来感觉怎么样?

“This is the longest I’ve ever run a frame, and it still rides just as good as when I first got it and is solid as hell! But then again, anyone that’s ever owned an FBM will know that they are built to last. My favourite thing about this frame has been the more modern street geometry, steep head angle, short back end, wider tyre clearance, but still having a 21″ TT, meaning it feels spot on while riding a bit of everything.”

这是我使用时间最长的一台车架了,它依然像我第一次装上它的时候那么好而且结实得离谱!!当然如果你拥有一台FBM的车架,你一定知道品牌初衷就是为了生产耐久的产品。我最喜爱的部分就是车架更偏向于街式的设计,内折的头管,短尾叉以及超大的后叉开档能兼容加粗的肌肉胎,而且还有像21寸上管这样的冷门尺寸,让人很清楚这是一台近乎全能的车架。

– Where has this bike taken you this year?

今年你的车都带你去到过哪些地方?

“From the start of the year until now this bike has been on trips to Barcelona, Belgium, Wales and Copenhagen, as well as a load of more local(ish) trips with the guys. I’ve also spent a fair bit of time in Hastings. More recently I rode at NASS and the Battle of Hastings qualifier which were a load of fun!”

从年初开始的话算起来有:巴塞罗那,比利时,威尔士和哥本哈根,当然也有很多周边游。最近来说的话我还参加了NASS(世锦赛)以及决战海斯廷斯的比赛,非常的有趣。

– Any recent changes to the set up?

有哪些最新更换的配件吗?

“New Bicycle Union bars and stem, which are awesome. I’m constantly changing between pegless and 2 pegs but for the last couple of months I’ve left the pegs off which has been really fun. I’m sure they will be back on at some point once my mates start giving me hassle!”

新款的Bicycle Union车把和把立,非常棒。我时常会在无火箭筒和双火箭筒的模式下切换,但过去的几个月以来我一直是处于无火箭筒的配置,很有意思。我很肯定在我的哥们儿们忽悠下,我很可能又会装上的。

– How’s the A14 scene these days?

你的A14发展的怎么样?

“It’s still great here, we have a nice tight crew who are always down for travelling to new places and filming/shooting photos etc. There’s also a great group of dudes linked to the local trails spot (Gate23), and the Area25 during the wetter weather. All in all Suffolk is still an awesome place to be!”

它依然很好,我们有一支非常局气的队伍愿意一同到处旅游,骑车拍片。而且我们和本土的Gate23土坡场已经建立了很好的联系,还有Area25在潮湿的天气下会是个很好的去处。但无论如何因为Suffolk是个让人觉得很棒的地方。

– What’s next for you?

接下来你准备干些什么?

“This year I’ve taken a different approach and focused on collecting footage from as many places as possible, and have been sitting on a lot of stuff for a number of projects with FBM and Union later in the year. (Thanks to my boys Tom Ellam and Gav Mitchell for their help with filming.)

今年我采取了不同的做法,专注于从尽可能多的玩车点搜集画面素材,并在今年晚些时候会联合FBM和Union在一些项目上完成很多东西。(感谢Tom Ellam和Gav Mitchell的拍摄)

I’m heading out to Ithaca, New York in just under a month for the FBM Open House event and a trip with those guys, which is going to be so awesome!

我很快就会去美国纽约州的伊萨卡待一个月的样子,参与FBM OpenHouse的项目并且和他们一起旅行,这简直棒极了!

I wanna say thanks to Ian, Bomber and Fooman at 4Down, John Dye and Crandall for all their help and support! Appreciate it more than you know.”

感谢4Down公司的Ian,Bomber和Fooman,John Dye还有老板Crandall给与的帮助和支持!
