Marty Schlesinger, facebook.com, december 2010: The guys at the Freestylin' sent a few photo options to Mongoose to pick from. I wanted this great one footed invert shot. Instead it got shot down because you couldn't see the new "Decade" frame clearly. The powers that be at Mongoose opted for the product shot over a well executed trick. The guys at Freestylin' even questioned their choice. I remember overhearing on the speaker phone "Are you SURE" a couple times. I was bummed at the picture that was published, but stoked to have made the cover.

Mark Eaton on the cover. Photo by Spike Jonze.
Brett Downs, www.vintagebmx.com, february 2005: My favorite cover would have to be Eaton's because he is riding in front of a Rutter's convienence store where we rode. A couple months after the shot was taken, I was buying the mag in that very store. The girl at the register looked at the mag, then at Eaton, then at the mag, then at Eaton, then at the mag, then realized that she was working in the store on the cover. She looked so confused. It was great.
