Check these shots of the Halahan boys going fast and high.

Really stoked to announce the new FBM Hala-fast frames.

The Halahan boys have been dialing geometry with the FBM dudes over the past couple years.

They came up with a super stable rig made to go fast and high in the woods and on the concrete waves. A small FBM Steadfast (Hala-FAST), rig.

Halafast 18 Inch Wheel Frame – Dialed for Modern Trail Riding

Hala-fast 18 inch BMX Trails Frame

A 74.25 degree head tube angle, 12.75” chain stays (slammed), and a 8” stand over height keep the bike stable yet still nimble to whip.

At high speeds and roasting a set you want to keep it simple; you don’t want to have to think of anything except that feeling.

28 – 30 tooth sprocket recommended.

Handcrafted in the FBM Machine Shop in Ithaca, New York, USA

Halafast 20 Inch Wheel Frame – Dialed for Modern Trail Riding

Hala-fast 20" BMX Trails Frame

A 74.25 degree head tube angle, 13.5” chain stays (slammed), and a 9” stand over height keep the bike stable yet still nimble to whip.

At high speeds and roasting a set you want to keep it simple; you don’t want to have to think of anything except that feeling.

28 – 30 tooth sprocket recommended.

Lukas and Nathan Halahan: 2016 FBM BMX Bike Checks

Halahan 2016 FBM BMX Bike Checks
The first words that come to mind when thinking of the Halahan brothers riding are speed, style, flow and fun. All 4 of these words are hard to convey in photos and even in video edits. These two dudes kill it on their bikes and if you hang around them a little, it doesn’t take long to notice they’re having a blast doing it. Their bikes are completely dialed for both sizing and their riding style. Check them out carefully and learn.

Every year in March, Lukas and Nathan put on a jam at the Wheelmill in Pittsburg – yes they are already giving back to the sport. The jam is fun, has something for everyone and is definately the best place to see the most grom talent at one event. This year the Next Generation Jam is planned for March 19. Hope to see you there.
