wethepeople have decided to hit the tire market. Two tires available by the names of Grippin' and Feelin'. Pictured are the 1.9's but they come in two sizes. They've got a soft compound but they're still lasting. Perfect for those who don't have time to break them in.
When you think of legends in BMX the first name that comes to mind is undoubtedly Mat Hoffman, who also happens to be someone Stephen has respected & admired since he was 7 years old. Stephen has come so far in such a short time and has remained positive & strong, I wanted to do something special to show him how much I love and appreciate him. I emailed Mat a few months ago and asked if he and I could make plans for a surprise visit to see Stephen. He replied, "Yes, I would be honored"!

Dillon Hass is a photographer who made it over to the Banksgiving jam in Ben Snowden's backyard early enough to shoot some rad photos. Dillon took pics of James Foster's toboggan, Ben Snowden's tree tap, Lil Jeff's turndown, a rad no-foot cancan from Garrett Reynolds, Mr. Alfredo going upside down and sideways (flair), Steve Woodward's bikeflip, Dylan's tuck no-hander and Arash bum buzzing. See this as a photo gallery of the Banksgiving jam.
Oh man, Andy Shohara! Almost forgot about that name until this flyer showed up. The "Flyin' Hawaiian" used to live and ride in the UK. Why someone would move from Hawaii to England remains the question but Andy was a rad vert rider who showed up in almost every issue of R.A.D. magazine sporting his Town & Country wear. Now Andy is having a birthday jam at the Krause Family park in San Diego this Saturday (Nov. 24th) and the people who are supposed to show up will make this a BMX freestyle reunion right off the bat. Names added to the list are Andy Patterson, Ron Wilton, Ron Camaro and possibly Mike Dominguez and Bob Osborn. If they all will get out of bed on a Saturday to meet at 08:45am at the park remains to be seen.
Coming up with a new cover idea every month can be difficult. You can take a rad action shot but doing spomething special is usually the better idea. It requires some more effort but the result is always there. This cover shows Ashley Charles doing a barspin jump off a plank with a few brinks underneath. Not quite the extra labour to build that jump but it makes for a good cover anyway in front of that white (studio) wall. The December issue is full of interviews (Chris Doyle, James Hitchcox, Clint Reynolds, Tom Blyth, Martyn Tambling, Shad Johnston, Anthony Lille, James Cox and Ralph Sinisi) and has its fair share of jams and road trip reports.
