BMX Plus! sends an early Valentine

6 01 2011

Oh BMX Plus!, it’s been nearly a year already….

Back in your April 2010 issue, you ran a cover story on the “Death of the 24.” A surprising turn of events given that you showed so much love for the cruiser in months prior to that article.

I won’t deny it. It stung a little.

Since then, it’s seems you have been on a non-stop campaign to bring the love back. There was the 10-page race cruiser shootout… a nice gesture.

And mentions of 24s in the different buyer’s guides.

But it seems forced.

Now your February issue hits the stands and I find a 3-page test on the SE Floval Flyer.

Is this an early Valentine, perhaps?

If it is, I appreciate the effort, but…

They’re still something we need to do, to bury the hatchet.

Remember the freestyle cruiser shootout I suggested before?

Run that and we can put this whole thing behind us.

 

*Off-topic but somewhat-related news*

SE recently announced the signing of #1 Pro Cruiser champ, Barry Nobles to its team for 2011.

Got to admire the versatility of a rider that backflips the Pro Section in the Pro Cruiser main during the 09 ABA Grands (why didn’t anyone capture this on video?) and follows it up with a #1 title the following year.
