Steve Crandall submitted this rad story on the Fat House, which was a BMX house in Ft Wayne, Indiana many years ago. The Fat House housed many notable riders, and I’m sure there are a million stories about the place. Lots of history!!!

    it has since then burnt down. as a FatHouse Player from the day and one of the guys int he pic above. Let me give you a small bit of advice. You can make this anywhere you want it to be. Don’t live that twenty year old dream we had, make your own and use this one as a bar to measure your FatHouse decendants success. Something that would be bad ass is to start your own fathouse versions. Liek fathouse family trees, create houses that spark off this one, then others will come from yours. keep the lineage alive though, its what makes it noteworthy and historical. Let awesome breed into more awesome. That might make a kick ass tour idea for props too. It was all about riding having fun and brotherhood. thats the basis of a fathouse. Love your craft and go hard to the core at it. Recognize that everyone from this house was a no where loser doing nothing and completely had no idea about the future. And they have all turned into the future that has become what BMX is today at its roots and to its core. Fuck the man, fuck a factory job, do whats awesome and you will be successful at it. Remember your firends, forget the fact they are losers with nothing because they eventually turn into someone at some point. The other thing to remember is never take on the shit head attitude. Brotherhood unites us all and brotherhood is what keeps us all strong. Support only companys owned by riders employing riders and you will have a long lived dream if you support the corporate guys then you will lose out. Support your local bike shop. Even if its more expensive, bnecause they will support you too, and the more support he community gives a local bike shop the more support they can offer you when you need or want somethign liek a park or road trips and stuff. But no matter what never do it for the money.
