It's easy to say that you don't need a magazine for newcomers to BMX if you've been involved for many years, but everyone started at some point. For those the BMX BASICS magazine by Freedom BMX is a perfect start. Learn how to do tricks which are explained by Felix Prangenberg (street) and Adrian Warnken (ramps), so you know you're in good hands there with all the tips. BMX Basics teaches you how to put a bike together, something that sounds easy, but if you need to shorten a chain for the first time you need some good tips (and tools) to get the job done. BMX BASICS also shows you where you can ride, how to treat sponsorships, what's involved with BMX contests and lots more. The BMX cake needs to grow. Those complete bikes need to be sold. BMX Basics will help grow the sport of BMX because it has the info that newcomers need to know. Did we mention you can pick one copy up at the local BMX shop for free? What are you waiting for?

Sometimes product shows up that fully makes sense. The Outdoor Tech Turtle Shell 2.0 is one of those products. Everyone's life is better with music in it so why not take it with you. The Turtle Shell is small enough to actually put in your backpack when you go for a ride and unpack when you arrive at the riding spot. Then it's loud enough to play your tunes, either through the cable that gets delivered with it or via bluetooth. As long as you stay within a 9 meter range, the music will play, or if you leave your iPod with the speaker you can

Music has played a role in the self-expression and individuality of sports. The reason DC decided to team up with the Misfits. From hell they came... 30 years ago in a small town in New Jersey. It was there, at the dawn of the punk movement in April 1977, that the Misfits were born. Taking for their name the title of Marilyn Monroe's final movie,

Two riders, two new pairs of shoes from etnies. Low-top vs Hi top. Street vs Ramp. But who would you pick in a fight if you had to pick for either Ben Lewis from Liverpool or Tom Dugan from Austin? It could be an interesting match between the two. For certain Ben Lewis will have more force but underestimating Dugan's tactics would be stupid, he could make some surprise attacks.

The one before another big one. I'd be disappointed if ussue Number 199 doesn't have at least one reference to Travis Pastrana. I'm sure it's in there, go find it. For sure the following can be found in the May/June double month issue:

Despite all odds, Brian Kachinsky perseveres and takes advantage of a remarkable setup.

Just the facts, please… sponsor changes, injuries, and more.

Hey, let's take the PowerBlock and make it into a street tire - easy right? Sure, if 10 months of testing and 3 mold changes is consider easy. Why the trouble? Well, as it's been a while since we developed a street tire we obsessed over the details to make sure we got it right. So the seemingly minor changes over its cousin, they actually took some major effort. But we think you'll appreciate our obsession.

We get contacted by all kind of companies presenting all kind of products. Some want us to pay for the product and shipping so we can post in online, like some speaker company today. Well, it doesn't work that way. You can send product and we'll review it when the time is right. These adhesive signal lights arrived earlier this week. It's basically a bright LED light in three functions (blink fast, steady, and slow strobe) that can be taped to whatever you think works. It weighs practically nothing so you can always carry some in your backpack or under your seat when that cop hassles you for riding without a light.
