Tom Beckman: GrindWorks BMX Podcast 031

Tom Beckman has been on the show before, on the No Worries Crew Podcast (Episode 022),  but he was pretty sick and didn’t really get to talk much. This time around is different and he’s substantially more alive and mildly more entertaining. We chat a little about the most recent No Worries Crew project, #betterlate, and then focus more on Tom and his photography as Tom Beckman Photo.

There’s lots of good content after the jump and also some links to check out the podcast on various other platforms as fits your lifestyle, including a new one! Continue reading “Tom Beckman: GrindWorks BMX Podcast 031”

Work Frames – A New BMX Company with John Corts: GrindWorks BMX Podcast 030

In case you haven’t heard the news yet, FBM has closed it’s machine shop and left long-time welder, John Corts, on his own to either move onto other things, or start his own brand. With close to 20 years of frame-building experience, it’s not surprising that he is starting his own brand, simply dubbed ‘Work’.

John doesn’t get into a lot of details about the separation with FBM, so if you’re looking for drama, look elsewhere; but if you want to know what’s next for one of the best frame builders in the industry, click play and go follow what he’s up to at @jcortsmetalworks on Instagram. Also, check back for his website link as that goes live soon!

GrindWorks Podcast 026

I forgot to post this one up here on the site, so here is the 26th episode of the GrindWorks Podcast with Sam Schrage. This was recorded using the Anchor app from cross-country. It sounds a little “phone-call like”, but it essentially was.

This episode is the first one to really have a title along with the interview. Here is “What Really Grinds My Gears”
