The core loves to hate him, the Internet just plain loves him, and others don’t know what to make of him. But one thing is for sure, Adam LZ received the biggest response for any Pro QA we’ve ever done. So that tells you something. And honestly, the most hated/loved dude in BMX actually has a lot of interesting things to say.
Some of the latest goods from some of the greatest brands in BMX.
Attire to wear when busting moves on a BMX bicycle, as well as some more suited for taking your girl on a date, and in some cases, both.

We shared the Focus section photos for this issue with Mike “Rooftop” Escamilla and gave him the reigns on the captions. Mike’s history and first hand contributions to BMX are to vast to name, but rest assured, his captions reflect his deep history. Respect.
Ted Van Orman is a damn good photographer. If you weren’t aware of that already, you will be after seeing this incredible photo.
