Todd Lyons, www.facebook.com, january 2016: If you were a pro BMX rider in So Cal in the early 90's, it's almost a given that at one point or another you suited up in some goofy uniforms and were a test rider for BMX Plus magazine. This is from the sub $300 "Six Bike Shootout" in the June, 1993 issue. For all of you eagle eyes, that's Travis Chipres on the far left doing a one-hander, Neal Wood next to him, Clymer David behind him with the dreads flying, me in the front with the POW x Public Enemy helmet, Brian Brian Schmith doing the Hannah, and Bo Olson Iron busting the one-footed hannah. I'm riding the Redline bike. And now for some more trivia - Check out the address label on the magazine. It was sent to Richard Long at GT Bicycles in Huntington Beach. I actually worked in the warehouse at GT for about a year in 1993. Richard Long (RIP) was the CEO & head honcho. I only made like $4.50/Hour when I worked there, but I looks like I walked out of there with this magazine!

|Mark Noble, Ride BMX UK #8, december 1993: On magazine racks, BMX Plus! is more at home amongst Minitruck Monthly and 3&4 Wheeler than with bmx mags - it's from a big publishing company and the art director guy lays out all their magazines, so they all look the same - ie. cheesy. Hi-Torque [publishers] brought in riders to edit the mag and give it cred, but it didn't work: the suits still pull the strings and the art guy still makes it look terrible [ex-editor Karl Rothe quit 'cause he hated him so much]. Ex-GO and nice guy Mike Daily is now editor, but it's still much the same thanks to the head honchos in the boardroom - pull out an issue from '84 and it'll look just like the latest one. Photos range from incredible to downright tacky. Yes, it's still available today.|
