Life in the Fastlane

12 05 2009

It seems like most of my favorite magazines these days are from the UK (BMX or otherwise). I don’t know if it’s because everybody in North America has jumped on the social media wagon or what …but I don’t think it’s just me, it seems like the best magazines are coming out of the UK. Fastlane BMX is a prime example. Great photos, good rider interviews, bright and colorful layout and…in issue #2, a cruiser bike check! When’s the last time you’ve seen that?

The bike check features Groove shop owner, Marke Seaman’s tricked out Koxx cruiser, complete with an awesome paint job. This alone might be something worth checking out the magazine for. You can order it (the mag, not the cruiser) online with PayPal…I did it and got it lickety-split… just a couple of days.  Check it out.

I am with you on that. Dig is at the top of my list. For years MBUK and Dirt have been churning out great stuff. I haven’t followed the mtb scene in a while, tho. RideUK and Dig are on a different plane than the US mags.

Yep…Dig and RideUK are so much better to read. It’s funny that you mention Dirt…I always end up picking that up when I’m at the magazine rack…Most mtb mags make mtb’ing look lame but Dirt makes it look kick ass.

Can u buy it off the rack here in Ontario?

Haven’t seen it anywhere on the magazine rack in Ontario…I don’t know if it is being distributed in Canada yet. I would recommend ordering it online…I got it in less than week.

Mikeyp: I just realized you may have been talking about Dirt…you can get that at Chapters/Indigo…Fastlane is the mag that you’ll probably have to order online.
