Flatbillers, AKA Bros - You've seen them. Those tattooed kids who drive lifted trucks, wear flat-billed hats turned to the side and constantly talk about dirt bikes. These tough guys affectionately refer to each other as "Bro". Are they for real? Or are they just posers? dives headfirst into the underground world of the Flatbiller to find out.

Flatbillers - The Motocross Connection

Monday, April 10, 2006
Our search for the epicenter of the flatbiller world led us straight to the sport of motocross. The recent explosion in the popularity of motocross coincides almost perfectly with the rise of the "bros".

Which caused which? Did the wilder motocross fans naturally gather into large groups of bros? Or did bros latch on to motocross to take advantage of its extreme image? The subject is highly debated, and more research is needed.

One thing for certain, the motocross "sub-sport" of Freestyle Motocross (FMX) is almost completely dominated by flatbillers. If you aren't familiar with FMX, it's the sport where dirt bike riders perform stunts in the air while jumping up to 150 feet.
Freestyle Motocross icons such as Brian Deegan and Mike Metzger use FMX to heavily promote the flatbiller lifestyle. Like any extreme sport, the money comes from promoting the image, not skill or ability. The big guys know that flatbillers will happily pour their hard earned dollars into the latest bro fashions, as long as there is a big name behind them.

Where will the sport go next? How far will the trend go before the backlash begins?

Your guess is as good as ours.

Woah that's freakin crazy!

Dude, wtf with the fingers?

I mean seriously, what's the point - no pun intended, does that make them feel 'hard'? does it make them feel that their weenus is bigger? I guess I don't get it. I reserve that gesture for a tard on the freeway.

Another sharp....Tool.

What kind of flatbiller covers his bill with a hooded sweatshirt? Guess he still looks tough with his hood on inside his garage.
