Of course it's world famous Dick Slater!!! There's only one real Dick on the vert ramp doing 900-s at hardcore concerts. He lives the life in a tour bus playing Grand Theft Auto playing CJ until he says: "Take that, bitch!"
If you guessed it right, pump your fist in the air three times now and scream Dick Slater rules!
It's Friday, it's time for Crazy Party. You might even run into Dick tonight. Buy him a drink and take a snapshot for FATBMX.
Next February 18th., for the second consecutive time, Red Bull Sewers returns to San Nicolás de los Garza. This is the only BMX cycling event where the best in this discipline participate that takes place in the drainage system of Monterrey. Red Bull Sewers has distinguished itself in the BMX world as a very attractive event, given its marked urban character. The city of Monterrey provides a first-rate alternative venue and, according to the opinions of several participants and media, this competition could very well be on its way to become one of the most important in the international BMX scene.
This pedal took 2 years of developing. If you read the full description on the FlyBikes website, you get an idea of what goes into a goddamn pedal. Everything needs to work before it hits mass production and if you put your name on it (in this case Ruben Alcantara), you want it to be perfect. The pedal is strong (6061 aluminium) comes with 3.5 mm pins and griptape in the middle for extra traction. The box comes with extra tape and a set of 2.5 mm pins that you can mount with a 3mm allen key. If you do snap an axle, you can get the remaining part out from the inside with a 6 mm allen key. At 440 grams the pedals are pretty damn light and that's what matters these days. Help [url=http://www.paulsboutique.nl]Paul's Boutique[/url] get rid of some.

It's good to see some dirt riding on the cover of RIDEBMX. I'm sure Mark Mulville is stoked on getting a RIDE cover. [url=//fatbmx.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=1193]Losey photo[/url]. Up Front is up next with the Fine Print column on the right that has all the news. Wow, RIDEBMX has joined the myspace.com party. We took a look and found a review on their April issue. Myspace is good for something! We're going to use that review here and we're done. The easy way out this time, Yeehaw.
April 2006 Issue... (as stolen from myspace.com/ridebmxmagazine)
Got the new issue in the office the middle of last week. We totally slacked on getting on here, though. Please accept our sincere appology. It will never, ever, ever, ever happen again...until it happens again.
AA Pro Greg Romero has agreed to fill in the now vacant position on Team Haro. Greg Romero, a highly decorated BMX racer, agreed to fill in for his good friend, and fellow racer Jason Richardson while he is out with his recent femur injury. Speaking with Richardson yesterday about the decision he commented "I'm grateful for the fact that there's no issue with Haro supporting me while I am down...which also proves that there is no place better for me in BMX. My decision to pick Greg as my replacement was backed up by many reasons, but our mutual respect for one another and his ability to compliment the existing Haro team seemed to be the two that stood out in my mind. I'm very thankful that Greg (somewhat) put his personal BMX career on hold to help out me and my Haro teammates."
