|Freestylin' magazine was combined with BMX Action to become "Go: the rider's manual" in 1989.
Exerpt from the Editor that can be found in issue 1 explaining the first covers: We wanted to make sure everyone would recognize us on the newstands, so until the february 1990 issue, you'll be seeing both the FREESTYLIN' and BMX ACTION logs on the front. If you currently subscribe to FREESTYLIN' or BMXA, you will now be receiving GO.
Editors: Mark Lewman, Mike Daily.
Photography: Spike Jonze.
Contributors: Chris Moeller, Craig gork Barette, Ken Paul, ...
Publisher: Bob Osborn, Wizard Publications.
Mark Noble, Ride BMX UK, december 1993: The cocktail of BMX A and Freestylin' although the previous editorial people had flown the nest ; Mike Daily was now in charge, Brad McDonald was shooting, and Jeff Tremaine was art director [before moving on to Big Brother]. Plenty of soul and good stuff inside, and indeed things looked good for the skeleton that remained from Wizard's original staff list. GO continued to fuel on the fire, only the industry didn't get it and pulled their money, hence it's now dead.

Incoming (letters), Approved credit. Mit Yaled, GO august 1990: Dear Go, I often wonder whilst visions of Drob Meyer and Joe Johnson cascade through my mind, if we as riders really give ourselves enough credit. The next time you get bummed trying to learn a new trick or are having a bad day, just take time and realize what you can do and realize how incredible it is. I mean, it's not every human who con balance, coast scratch, sprague, kick, and glide a bicycle in tight circies or fly down a hill in a hang five at warp 40. Yes, we who ride are superhuman... or have I been reading too much Bloom County ? Lew: I don t know how about being superhuman but I will say that there are things being done on bikes these days that the average person couldn t even dream of doing. Things a lot of riders take for granted. And like you said Mit the key is realizing what you can do not what you can't.
