The ever relaxed looking Corey Martinez gets the cover with a topside no-foot cancan on his Bronze Federal. Justin Simpson shows he's got balls doing the manual that he does on the contents page. The Inside Scoop is always full of gossip and BMX news. We'll list some of the people who are celebrating their B-day in November:
Jay Miron (November 3rd), Rick Thorne (11th), Simon Tabron (17th) and Nathan Penonzek (18th). Now send these guys an electronic B-day card and they'll wonder how the hell you know it's their B-day. They get a bag full of mail every month at BMX Plus! and some of them are answered by the staff or the BMXperts. The Nostalgia photo sure is old school. Blyther, Dominguez and Anderson all in the air at the same time on the Camarillo ramp. Okay, you're a pretty advanced street rider but would like to learn a 180 to 180 off, on a rail. Ian Munro shows you how. There's a HARO 06 (Nyquist three) bike test in the November issue. The ABA puts on a "World's" of their own in California and you can find a race report from page 26-35.
Another bike test: Specialized FUSE 4. I know you were waiting for this: Jersey shootout. Chicks in BMX jerseys. Okay, you want to race but still want to do some dirt jumping and street riding? You'll need a light frame. The CrMo Supercross MX frame is possibly your answer (4.62 lb). If you want a REAL light frame to race on, the FMF Carbon Pro 2 Tube wins the scale competition at 3.062 lb. but we remember seeing Neal Wood walking away from Sheep Hills with two pieces of frame in his hands some years ago. Keep it to the track and hope it will survive.
Plus! is also leading you through some helmet testing. We can only advise you to protect your head. The Redline catalog in the middle makes this issue feel like it's real thick but in fact, the fat Redline catalog is the reason for this. Miron's bike gets inspected and the same goes for Rob Wise's S&M. Joe Rich won the Soul Bowl in HB, read why on pages 56-58. Damn, it's a stacked issue; Gravity Games. Loads of pictures and the sequences show some of the harder tricks that were done. Ever heard of Christopher Scott Tepper-Weise? me neither. The 18 year old has a fake leg and still rides. He gets an interview in FACES and an interesting one at that.
The S&M Light as Fuck frame gets tested, followed by some Tech Tips regarding cranks. Then it's time for the nice photos in the Moving pictures. Are we done yet? No, not really. Product Probe shows Macneil I.D. Forks, a RNC Euro Bottom bracket and Primo Hollowbite Cranks. There are 10 parts that make it in the Trick Stuff section but you gotta find an issue of Plus! to find out who they are. Is that the world famous Surridge getting the Parting shot? Man, he's going to blow up soon and buy himself a real Mercedes.
