For decades, smarter engineers at bigger companies than ours have tried to reinvent the bicycle sprocket, with limited success. In the ‘70s Addicks made BMX chainrings from plastic. Result? Disintegration and bankruptcy. Shimano followed suit in the late ‘70s with Dura Ace 10—the first micro drivetrain for bicycles—and a few years later with Biopace—Japanese for “egg-shaped,” it seemed at the time. Neither innovation survived. Today one BMX company makes spline drive sprockets, and another makes a sprocket that only fits their proprietary spindle size. When sub-30-tooth sprockets became the fashion in BMX, function was relegated to variables like tooth size (1/8” or 3/32”), tooth count and

Two-consecutive NAG No.1 title holder DAKOTA SENGER (Oregon) will be highlighted in next weeks’ edition of Sports Illustrated – in their traditional FACES IN THE CROWD section. After having a stellar year in 2007 – with a NAG No.1 title and UCi World Championship, Dakota’s chance to defend it in 2008 blew up when a slip of the pedals while doing sprints busted up his ankle really bad. But he didn’t let it ruin his year, and wound up returning in July to begin a late-year charge back to the top of ABA age group standings.

There ain't no stopping BMX Plus! The new issue arrived earlier this week and it's got Chris Gerber on the cover, or is it superman? The main articles are about the LG Action Sports Final, the Red Bull Trick or Treat and the ABA Grands. Bikes tested come from Stolen and Redline. No, it's not a stolen Redline they tested.  The regulars, like the Inside Scoop news, Ask the BMXperts, Mail Bag, Product page, Parting Shot etc. fill up the 100 page magazine. Newly added is a page called the Showcase Funnies which has funny photos or photos with funny comments. It's nice to see some fun in BMX. The March issue has a big Photos Special and also a How-To on winning the battle with rust. NIKE's 6.0 Banksgiving Jam gets a few pages and there's a Whopper how-to. No, they're not inside a Burger King but a bunnyhop tailwhip got called a Whopper almost ten years ago (Andrew Faris? or was it Billy Nitshky who named it that?). There's a bike check on Ryan Nyquist's bike, Tech Tips and a full on Trail

We got our hands on the last few orange Nike 6.0 BMX parts. Not only that, we're giving out a complete set which includes a Pivotal seat, Orange grips and Animal pedals. With a bit of luck we'll throw in a copy of the "Writing On The Wall" video as well. What do you have to do? Answer the following question:

"Who got the sickest part in the Nike video?"

In 1981 my BMX numberplate had # 85 on it. I'd moved up from Novice to Expert and finally said goodbye to my solid steel CPX100 and swapped it with a true American Cr-Mo MCS Magnum frame. Stoked! This has nothing to do with this Magazine review other than this is issue number 85 of Freedom BMX. You want to know what's inside? Here we go. First we got Alex Kennedy on the cover from a recent trip to the USA which took the 6.0 team and a bunch of media from the East Coast to the WESTSIIIIDE!! (motherfuckers!). Kay met up with Bob Haro for an interview too. Living legend for sure. Felix Kirch is up for big things in 2009. He's almost a BMX veteran but he's only 19 years old. Read his interview which starts on page 20. The Carhartt crew did a few trips in 2008. Remix starts on page 28. NIKE trip goes from page 36-42 before we move into the T-Mobile Extreme Playground Street session report. It's fun to ride & party around Halloween. Good costumes make for good photos.

Not sure if you've been to the Snafu website on a regular basis lately but there's new stuff to see/read over there on a daily basis, and we mean daily basis. 68 posts in December '08 and already 77 posts in January of 2009. McGoo is on it. If you haven't visited the SNAFU site lately you've missed the news that they've opened up a web store to sell their new range of T-shirts. And don't think they're just collecting orders. See Dan Norvell for proof.
