Plastic pedals seem to be all the craze. They're light (step one), you can grind pretty much anything on them (step two), and they won't hurt as much on the shins as the sharpened Hutch cage pedals. Omar gives us the details: Animal Steve Hamilton Plastic Pedals - 12.6 oz. Made of Polycarbonate. Available in Clear, Translucent Black, Translucent Purple, and Translucent Green. They're cool cause they're all cleeeear and light!!! ooOOOooo! hahah.

Beside Rookies and Amateurs there now will be the possibility for Oldschoolers to take part at the 3rd Rookie Jam on April 5th 2008 in Cologne. When on 5th of April 2008 the BMX beginners and amateurs will ride the Suzuki bike & skatepark in Cologne, for the first time there will take part another Class: The „E.T.-Class“! It’s for those guys who saw Steven Spielbergs film „E.T. – The Extra- Terrestrial“ in 1982 with tears in their eyes – but not because they felt sympathy for the little alien, the fact was, that they wanted to ride a BMX-bike like his friend, the ten year old Elliott.
