FBM Night Train 2012

Who else is stoked?  Already considering it to replace the AutoPilot I just built up over the summer.  I like the longer TT and longer CS as compared to the AutoPilot but prefer the taller standover and steeper headtube angle on the AutoPilot.  AP is 75 HT w a 20.875 TT, so I was thinking for the 2012 Night Train w a 74 HT going for a 21.25. Night train has 5/8" inch longer CS, 13 7/8th compared to 13.25 on the AP, i like the stability of longer CS. 

It's the classic geo of the OG night train just with smaller tubing and drops, the only thing i'm unsure about is the mellower 74 HT on the new Night Train, I can live with the 1/4" shorter standover, already bought a long johnson piv post.

Check it out, goes without saying it looks really nice.   http://www.fbmbmx.com/night-train-mike-tag-tribute.php

Anyone in the market for a 08/09 FBM AutoPilot 20.875 clear coated? smile

Re: FBM Night Train 2012

^ I was thinking closer to 400.  seems to be the going rate for a good frame these days.  the money is for a good cause though, but deep into the 400 dollar mark, i would have to pass.

we'll see.  maybe i'll call last distro tomorrow to see.

Re: FBM Night Train 2012

Dudes - they're going for 370, same price as all of FBM's other new frames, but all the profits they make go towards the ithaca skatepark and a dedication at the park for Tag.  The FBM site has all the specific/correct info, I'm just going off of what I remember when I read it.  It warmed up here this weekend and I got some riding in and after all the second guessing I'm gonna keep running my AutoPilot for street riding, however, the new Night Trains just look so nice, but I gotta concentrate on building a 24" this winter, I need a more commuter friendly bike for the spring and just don't have the dough to do that and get one of the new Night Train frames.  But, you all should get in on this if you have the cash, limited run on the frames, its the OG geometry just built with a modern tube set bringing it in @ 5lbs, and the profits go back into the park in Ithaca.  You can call last call distro to get yours and I also saw that Empire has them for pre order, 21 and 21.25 TT lengths, if you want a shorter TT call Last Call.  Can't wait for someone to put their 2012 Night Train build up on the site, despite extreme jealousy I'll be looking forward to it!

I'm guessing sometime next month we might see one built up on the museum .  If I had the funds I'd already have pre ordered a 21.25 tt clear coated but I need a commuter bike first priority and got the holidays coming up and all that. Besides, my AutoPilot is holding it down cool
