FBM – Orphan
The Orphan frame is FBM’s newest release in their 2014 line. It’s Kenny Horton’s signature frame, and definitely looks the business. This beauty is handcrafted in New York using a super-therm tubeset, it features an integrated headtube which has been drilled for gyro tabs, double butted top and downtubes, external downtube gusset and an internally butted seattube. They have you covered too if you like to ride brakes, as the frame comes with welded U-brake mounts and cable guides to reduce flexing. The coolest feature about the frame in our opinion has to be the amazing laser-cut custom Orphan logo on the seatstay bridge, it really finishes the frame off a treat.
