Bicycle Film Festival Block Party

[7/13] First Rule is hosting the Bicycle Film Festival block party for the third year in a row. This year’s event is going to be fucking rad. We’re going to have some really good ramps this year thanks to Colin, and Jase is going to weld up some rails for us (he’s the guy that probably welded your frame if you ride a Solid, S&M, or Fit). Also, I just uploaded the new First Rule website! There’s loads of content on there, so please check it out and bookmark it. There are a few bugs still, but I should have all of those squared off tonight. In other news, look out for some new videos of Tony Campos and Kurt Russell on Vimby.

[7/2] First Rule is hosting the Bicycle Film Festival Block Party for the third year in a row. We’re going to get things started at noon on Saturday, July 18th. This year’s event will be huge: better ramps, more prizes, merch booths, and much, much more. In addition to the Block Party, at 7pm there will be showings of four BMX films! You can buy tickets here for $10. We will be giving some tickets away, but I encourage everyone to go and support local filmmakers like Marco and myself.

I Love My Bicycle: The Story Of FBM Bikes
World Premiere
Dir: Joe Stakun
In reaction to big business BMX companies in the early 90’s, 17 year-old Steve Crandall started a company of his own called Fat Bald Men. What began as selling t-shirts out of a backpack has turned into one of the most well respected DIY bicycle companies around. Through fortune and misfortune, the film follows FBM through their 15 years of mayhem as told by Crandall and the rest of the BMX bicycle community from close friends to influential icons like Dave Mirra and Mat Hoffman.
