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?

Just before the weekend the new issue of BMX Plus! drops in the mail. The weather this weekend isn't looking too good so this might come in handy. But where do we start? With the UCI BMX SX World Cup race report from Manchester? Or the HARO SD V2 test report? We used to go straight to the news section of the magazine but the internet has taken over that part. Did you know Sam Willoughby's B-day is when he is in Sweden for the World Cup in August? We just found out because it's in BMX Plus! There's also a new page where you can even get a photo in BMX PLUS! Follow them on Instagram @bmxplusmag and add the hashtag #bmxplusmailbag in your photo and you've got the chance to show up in the print version. Dillon Leeper gets put on the spot, DeGroot has his two pages and reports about Trey Jones' backyard. Alex Rabal shows five tricks to do on the Subrosa rail. Woodward West hosted an Open Am comp and Ryan Guettler takes care of the report. Have you ever put a press-fit BB in your frame? Unless you're a racer, you probably haven't.
HARO BMX has THREE Pro frames out. One for Dennis Enarson, one for Matthias Dandois and the Lineage for DMC! It’s been a long time since the Mirra and Nyquist Pro models!
Dennis Enarson: SDv2
The Dennis Enarson SDv2 is available now. Some people call it an SDv3, but in all honesty, we created Dennis’ SDv1, made some improvements and the SDv2 was born. Now for 2015 Dennis just wanted to freshen up the colors and we redesigned the sticker kit. Why change the frame if Dennis is totally comfortable on it and it’s holding up just fine for all the abuse Dennis puts on it?
Full 4130 chromoly with an integrated head tube, mid BB shell, integrated seat post clamp and fully removable brake mounts, double-butted top and down tubes.
