Timo Pritzel runs his own clothing company and has a new T-shirt out with strong BMX roots. You actually should try to name all the brands in there before you check the next page to see the solution. Wait, don't click yet, try a little harder. There are over 10 brands involved so don't think you've got it when you discover parts of three old BMX company logos. Next to this design we will show you two more on the next page. The company is based in Berlin, Germany if you were wondering and the shirts will be available via a webshop on the Atmosfair site soon. Got all the companies on a list?
Here's a piece of street BMX art from a project of ours. You will see more stuff to claritybmx.com in the near future! It's a try to make the people believe that BMX is not a strange thing to observe, but an emotion that never ends! Loving bmx is a way of life that controls your body and mind with a strange and weird force that comes from somewhere outside or inside ourselves! Photo:Nikos Kalianis Art by: Swtiris Kapsas
You know what's cool about riding BMX? You can set up your bike in whatever way you want to. Not only that, but you can put on the parts that you think will work for you. Only a few years ago the only color a BMX dealer would have to stock was black. Now this has changed. Multiple color choices are the norm but it does not stop there. You can customize your bike by doing things like Adam Ortiz did with his seat. He turned a regular DK seat into a custom Simpsons piece. Be original. Do your own thing, and don't forget to put on your cranks.
