What’s up everybody?
Today marks 13 years of Flatmattersonline, and whilst I was thinking what I could drop for this year the answer was staring me in the face.
I did plan to drop my latest riding edit to celebrate, but events in my personal life put a delay to that. I’m a couple of tricks short at the moment, I hope you will all see that in spring.
The answer as I previously eluded to, is the return of the FM exclusives! To document share and progress has been my motto since day 1.

Documenting your riding is a great way to personally progress and time to return to the core of what the site is all about.
I have been on sat on a few videos for a few months, hard to believe the last exclusive was six months ago. Where did that time go?
London style cat, Jason Forde came through with this great crackpacker/halfpacker line, and you can tell Jay has put a lot of time in his bike by the way he moves on the bike. And in a FM t-shirt, no less, thanks for the support Jay!!
I’m sorry to Jay, and everyone else that their clips have been lying here for months, back to it now!

It’s now time for a shameless plug, we have a Black Friday sale on right now till Monday 29th November. Tees and hoodies are now 20% off on our webstore. Thanks to everyone who has supported the site over the years, and more recently bought a tee or hoodie, this really is a labour of love and I appreciate anyone who takes the time to comment on the site.

Flatmattersonline / 13 years Strong!

  4. Happy 13 th , Big -E ! Stoked for this site and everything you’ve done with it . It really is the life line of online global BMX Flatland content . Every time era , riding style , all bases covered , TIME 7 . The return of the exclusives ! Hyped on THAT and personally think that every single rider who clicks on this site should contribute at least one AND buy a shirt or hoodie ! It would really show love / support to the FLATMATTERSONLINE.COM machine that fuels us all on and off our bikes !

  5. Ah yes , the Corey Bohan of Flatland ……..Jason Forde ! Really STEEEZZZZY line , flowed with ease , Jay . Always loved your riding since your London Bikes days . South Bank representer in the most CORE way ! The way you move , flow around in your lines , just rolling , pivots , turbines ……it’s smooth like a butter , bruv . You’ve also progressed with the times over the years ! Why Corey Bohan , that reference ? Corey is known for and has always had remarkable STYLE as much as he has tricks while riding . So in my opinion you two are very similar in the most STEEEZZZY riding style / way ! Cheers , Jay …….

  6. Happy to see the return of Exclusives! And Congrats on the 13th year anniversary, Effraim! That’s a huge achievement for the flatland community!!
