HARO Bikes have produced a new line of shirts in various styles for all ages. Even the kids have a choice between the Haro Patch shirt, the Stamped design and the Road Trippin' shirt. Lovers of the old school will remember the '86 Ramp Riders Club shirt and will dig the '86 HARO Jersey tribute raglan. The Original design comes in a T-shirt and Raglan version as well. Plenty to choose from so make sure to hit up your HARO Bikes dealer or visit the HARO Bikes online shop to order it directly
Print magazines are in rough shape. We've seen many of them disappear over the last two years. But not RIDEBMX. They're at issue 211 which is their Nov/Dec 2015 book. Jeff Z explains what's inside:
– Departments –
Gary Young and Scotty Cranmer help get creative after dark in the Van Doren Invitational bowl, Drew Bezanson rides the biggest sub wall of all time, and Nathan Williams does what is quite possible the most manly half-cab ever done on a BMX bike.
Pro Q&A: Albert Mercado
When you see Albert ride you’d never know he is blind in one eye.
Big shocker this morning to hear that BMX Plus! magazine is no more. We've got issues dating back to 1980 and have photos printed in our brain for years to come. BMX Plus! kept it real giving freestyle and race some love in every issue. Niek Kimmann got the cover of the last published mag and you should try to get it because it'll be a keeper. Here's the word from Ben Crockett, editor in chief at BMX Plus! for the last 15 years or so:
After almost sixteen years at BMX Plus! which is about to turn 37, I am very saddened to say that the magazine will be officially closing its doors. It has been an amazing ride for me, from growing up reading the mag, to being able to run it for a decade and a half. It has been an honor. Hats off to Hi-Torque Publications for supporting the magazine based on a pure love for the sport for so many years. I am bummed we couldn’t bring you at least one more issue, but I am proud of all the content we have been able

Slipped grips make people ugly. How?
The grip slips…Un hunh
The ride is ruined… Yeah
And then out comes the pouty face. BAM! Ugly.
So WTB solved the problem. Why? Because we believe in making the world better for bikes. It’s the same reason we were founded

Month after month a new issue of BMX Plus! magazine shows up. Let me repeat that, month after month. The October 2015 issue just came out and it's got a whole bunch of BMX stuff in it. Make sure to pick one up from your favourite BMX store if they carry it, or find it in the bookstore that knows they need to provide BMX to the masses. Not too many monthly options nowadays in the bicycle section at the newsstands. But a digital version is available also so you don't need to go to the book store and you can read the mag on your tablet, phone or computer. Maybe something for you?
