The August issue of RIDEBMX has entered the newsstands. We're counting 140 pages this month and it does come with a pull out poster of Darin Read and Reuel Erickson. Aitken makes the cover, it won't be his last one. The S&M ad is funny; Go-for-it. After the usuals in Up Front, a Pro Q+A follows with Allan Cooke. Diversions does reviews on CD's and videos and the Spots section is about the China Banks in SF. Then and now: Dave Voelker, still the best show rider alive. Some wooden hubs appear in the Products section and Taj's bike is being inspected in the Set-Up part. The Buyer's Guide shows park friendly pegs. Products tested in the August issue are: Ruben's tires and the Odyssey Reloader Freecoaster Hub receiving an 8.5 both. Find some pics of the old school BMX-ers in the BMX HISTORY GOES HOLLYWOOD article. There's a report on the transition Jam in Baton Rouge and an interview with flatlander Terry Adams. Mirra takes a few riders under his wing for an all expenses paid video trip (that is if you don't count the money lost at playing poker).
Focus shows great photography and there's a How-to article on doing wallrides. Aussie Jose Munoz gets a Bio and the End Point is for Nasty messing himself up on a flip off of a curb. Are you kidding me?
