It really is. Like R.L said in Joe Kid, In our wildest dreams we couldnt have imagined what these kids are doing today. It almost seems like the progression of bmx/freestyle in some ways was backwards. As colorful as the 80s were and as much as mags like Plus, Action and Freestylin were perfect for that time. The amazing and unreal riding that kids are doing today deserves to have a publication to reach the masses. Now I know that this is the age of online social media, youtube etc. But how many of u remember waiting for your next subscription of Plus to come in the mail? How many of your book bags or back packs had a few issues stuffed inside? Not only the articles were great but the buyers guides, graphics etc. Yea, I sound old lol. It's just too bad that there isn't more publicity for these kids other than what's limited to the X-Games.

Re: it's all most insane hare far BMX has grown

Great post here.  I remember how passionate I was about freestyle, bmx overall back in the 80's and it was about everything from the tricks to the riders, but mostly the bikes for me.  I never had a subscription so I would get so exited when I'd see a new BMX Plus, BMXA or Freestylin on the news stands at my local market every month, begging my mom to buy me one.  Like Justlive stated, I drooled so hard over the equipment guides as well as the awesome bike tests.  This passion has not gone away which I why I build both race and freestyle bikes as well as replicas of some that really impacted me. 
This being said and although I do love the new era of flatland, I'm curious if the kids these days look at the sport the same way I did when I was young.  It's obviously different as they'll always have interent at their fingertips, but I wonder if they love the bikes as much as the riders, tricks and overall sport


It's your bike, build it how YOU want
