Daniel Winqvist, www.vintagebmx.com, february 2005: This cover, from Freestylin' Magazine, May 1989, is probably my all time favorite cover, at least of the Freestylin' ones. There are a couple of reasons why I like it so much. For one thing it's a great photograph, shot from an interesting angle and with Kevin's shadow playing an important part of the picture. Another thing is the layout. It's just super-cool. No info on bike-tests or interviews, just a "List of things to do". Very Lew and AJ. The fact that it's Kevin Jones on the cover is important too. I was 15 when the issue came out, I was just starting to get serious about riding freestyle and Kevin was a big idol. The bike is also of importance. Here was this great rider, no longer riding for Skyway and still not on GT, on a chrome Street Beat (I suppose he peeled the paint off) with white Comp STs that wasn't looking very "factory".
Brett Downs, www.vintagebmx.com, february 2005: We were on top of the second parking garage in York. there was another platform that Spike was on so he could shoot it straight down. The big thing was that Kevin was on 48's instead of Tuffs. he was so stoked to have rims that didn't flex and could hold a lot of air pressure. he's also wearing the Aggro Rag "A Puppet No More" shirt that we thought was old at the time. The trick is called Elephantitis.
