|Deutsches BMX Magazine. Zwanzig = German for twenty.
Sascha Richter, january 2004: In spring 2001 a rider and friend of us, called Lars Falkenberg, asked me and some other friends/riders to help him with his fanzine he was already doing for years. The answer was "yes" and so we started to write down some stuff. After a few editorial meetings we decided to do a real mag instead of a zine. So finally by autumn 2001 the first issue was out...
We started just for the fun of it. But we also wanted to complete the coverage of the german bmx scene, since it is pretty wide spreaded and (as we know now) we considered it to be hard for just one magazine (freedombmx) to cover all the good riders and actions.
Sascha Richter, january 2004: We are independent, if that means that we have no publisher but we got a youth-association having our back, called Alleins e.V., which also runs the mellowpark skatepark and helps us out a lot, mainly in questions of money. Without them not a single issue would be out. thanks and respect to them!

|Sascha Richter, january 2004: We have an edition of 5000 pieces per issue. The first 3 issues were completely free, we tried to run the mag with the money for the advertisement but after a while we were at the point where we had to decide whether to quit or to take at least 2 euro to refinance the bills for printing and all that. As you may guess, the first 3 issues are "sold out" completely, since they were free. Now that it´s really sold we sell about 3000 to 3500 of them. but our subscribtion service is just established...so we´re looking forward to sell them all!
There´s no publisher who has to pay for his house/boat/mercedes, just some guys who want to do a cool magazine about the thing they love. All contributors have other jobs and are doing this for the fun, so no one has to pay his bills by selling the Zwanzig. For us it is not about earning money but doing a magazine that´s affortable for every kid. Another reason is that the german industry supports us quite good by advertising in our magazine. the main advertisers are shops, mailorder-services, and companies like Felt, Mutation, Chico ...and so on.

Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, july 2005: The best 2 Euros you ever spent on a BMX magazine! Issue 11 has one picture that stands out. It makes you laugh, again and again. You look back at it and you will start shaking your head. It's better therapy than seeing a shrink. If you are feeling down, turn to page 58/59 and your day brightens up again. The picture almost made the cover of Zwanzig 11 and it actually should have because more people would have randomly seen it and made them smile. I hope you are getting curious what this photo is all about. Order your copy today. Ask for issue 11 and make sure page 58/59 have not been ripped out of the magazine yet.
|issue 12 - 2005
Cover: Taylor Leigh.
Inhalt: Taylor Leigh und Ben Armstrong / WM Prag, Rampenbau Nr.1, KOD Linz, L.G. Games München, Props Roadfools + Tobias Wicke, Highway to Hill, Garage Punx
Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, august 2005: For only 2 Euros you can pick up issue 12 of Zwanzig magazine. You should. It's money well spent. The quality of paper and pics is superb and also the lay-out kicks ass. When reading the magazine, it feels like the Zwanzig crew says what they think which is nice to see in a world where advertisers, sponsors and contest organizers seem to rule the scene. This review is shamelessly late but the Zwanzig crew on the other hand is on it. On Friday after the BMX-Masters, they already had an opening spread from the contest in the mag. How's that for speed. A beer bottle in the news section, why not? Dates, video reviews, a IBMXFF World's report straight out of Prague with great photo's, how to build ramps followed by a Taylor Leigh and Ben Armstrong self interview fills the first part of issue 12. The product page reviews a bunch of cassette hubs, bars, stems and frames and some softgoods. It's all about the Nosedive article follows and the Mellow Park people always seem to come up with some good pin-up photo. Turn to page 41 for that one, the lady is having a shower
on the trails....... "Du Schwuchtel hau ab!!" sums up the LG Munich report. For the non-Germans that reads: "Hey gayboy, fuck off!!" Interesting read for sure. Wicke lets you know how life on the RoadFools bus is as he reports live from RoadFools 14. Busty Wolter is the athlete of the month that occupies his time with another sport (FMX in this case). The Highway to Hill contest in the Mellowpark gets 7 pages followed by a RedBull Garage PunX article with a rad sequence of stuntman Aze. There's some Eastpak monkeys sitting on the backcover and that sums up the latest issue of Zwanzig Mag.
www.zwanzig-zoll.de, july 2010:
|issue 13 - 2005
Cover: Tobias Wicke.
Inhalt: Berlin City Games, Backjard Digger, Rampenbau Nr. 2, 13 Slams, Eastern Tour, Electro Vans Tour, German Open, Prince of Dirt
Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, december 2005: Ahh yes, the Euros go frontflipping. Tobias Wicke makes it on the cover with a huge one. Intro: Fullpipes; find them, ride them. All kind of news from page 6 to page 9 with Dates, Kuwahara, video reveiws, product news, that kind of stuff. Berlin hosted the Berlin City Games, a big flatland comp and if you made it there, you probably got a photo. The Red Bull Backyard Digger made it down South to Austria and with the help of a bunch of locals, they built trails ina a few days. Great concept. Rampenbau means: Building ramps. This issue hosts part II. Issue Thirteen has a slam section. 13 slams to be exact. The Eastern Tour gets 3 pages and then it's off to some USA sunshine with the Electro Vans Tour (Interbike/Let it Ride jam/Woodward West). Muetze Glatze is an article about porno. Next up is the German Freestyle Masterships (7 pages). Dirt jumpers can enjoy the Prince of Dirt report and if you're looking for a new T-shirt, the product page gives 12 shirts to pick from. Underground riders Themo and Sven get interviewed. The last page is reserved for another frontflipper by the name of Ryan Guettler. Maybe he's the one who got Wicke inspired when he pulled this one at the Rebel Jam in Berlin last summer. The backcover Eastpak ad shows one horny Panda bear. Sex is the only way out. It seems to work as a bunch of young Panda's were born in China last week.
Coverprice: € 2,00 Euro. That's cheaper than a beer at most places and will last longer.
|issue 14 - january 2006
Cover: Frank Lukas.
Rob, wethepeople.de, january 2006: Mondays often suck. But at least today started well, there was ZwanzigZoll's latest issue (Jan06 Nr14), the Photo Issue. Although the independant magazine is predominately orientated towards the German/Berlin scene, this photo issue will appeal to everyone. At the same time you got coverage of the Rebel Jam (from Mellow park, the home of Zwanzig), Lumberjack Jam, Daniel Holzinger Itw and then some cracking photos from the guys who bring you the best images of bmx the world over, David Ulrich, Viktor Strasse, Manu Sanz and Georg Oberlechner. It will be the best 2Eur you could spend this month.
Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, january 2006: We're a little swamped over here at FATBMX and have a lot of reviews to take care of. Maybe this weekend we'll get to it. Zwanzig Zoll riders magazine made it easy for us this time. They came out with a photo issue. Right, you guessed it, great photo's from cover to cover. Next to the killer photos issue 14 has BMX news, a 2006 calendar, video reviews, also reports about the Lumberjack contest (where was Gary Ellis?) and has a Daniel Holzinger interview (he's now on Hoffman Bikes through Fastpace). There's a pictorial on the Rebel Jam and sexy photos of Marie the Zwanzig Zoll girl. Max wrote another column and there are three pages of products presented in the 84 page mag. Zwanzig Zoll will be available at the train station newsstands in Germany (starting in April) and even if the cover price is going up with a Euro, we say it's still worth it. BMX from beginning to end.
www.agoride.com, février 2006: Je découvre pour la première fois ce magazine qui est comparable au Cream, même format, même couverture glacée, avec par contre un papier mat à l'intérieur (Cream est en papier brillant). Ce papier et le graphisme donnent un magazine assez luxueux, très artistique qui est beaucoup plus basé sur l'image que sur les textes. Et oui, il y a très peu de texte, ce qui tombe bien, car c'est tout en allemand. Comme son homologue, il y a les news, des reportages et les pages shopping et un très gros portfolio avec de très belles photos. En plus il n'est vraiment pas cher, car on le trouve en Allemagne à 2 euros, oui, oui vous avez bien lu, 2 euros et 84 pages. Le n°14 contient: Lumberjack contest, Perfect Moment (Portfolio), Rebel Jam, Zwanzig Girl, Interview Daniel Holzinger.
|issue 15 - april 2006
Martin, www.global-flat.com, april 2006: Chrim Böhm is on the cover of the new german Zwanzig Zoll Magazine. Inside you´ll find an interview with Chris and Dan Hennig. They talk about their small hometown Bitterfeld, how they got into flatland and Chris´ move to Switzerland. Moreover there is a short contest report about the Battle in da Club in Munich.
Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, may 2006: Zwanzig #15 sports a super fresh cover with flatlander Chris Boehm busting a move underneath some structure in Bitterfeld (Germany). Dan Hennig and Chris Boehm get a duo interview that starts on page 16. Also the Muenster jam gets a report. The No More Jokes tour takes you from Basel (Switzerland) to Rome (Italy) with 8 guys doing their thing hitting everything on their path. Rampenbau means something like building ramps. That's actually a good feature in any mag. Kids, find some wood, grab a hammer and start building. Maybe you need some extra tools to make something rideable... Tobias Herzfeld reports from the Australian BMX Games and Benn Pigot gets a 5 page interview. Zwanzig's Sex, Drugs and Rock 'n Roll poster with Kathi would have fit nicely in the FATBMX pin-up section. Berlin Marzahn hosted the ROOF JAM, ramps 'n shit you know. Braunschweig hosts a new hall that goes by the name of Walhalla. Zwanzig Zoll checked it out. The PopSession in Tallin gets a 6 page report as well. 7 pages Ralf Schiefer (interview) fill page 70-76 with some great pics. Product photos and info cover the next few pages and then it's time out for Zwanzig. The quality of the paper, pics and layout is top notch. For € 2,90 nobody can complain, or maybe the mother of a rider who can´t handle the poster.....

Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, august 2007: In case you didn't know, Zwanzig BMX magazine is made at the Mellowpark in Berlin, the same place that hosted the Rebel Jam last weekend. A new printer made it possible for the new issue to be finished right before the jam. It took only four days to get printed which is pretty quick. This helps keeping contest reports, news and interviews current and number twenty already has a BMX Masters report, Empire of Dirt report and a Dew Tour (Baltimore) report. Josh Stricker lived in Berling for a while and gets an interview. So handy when the riders come to your town so you've got time to shoot some pics and find the right time to get the inteview done. Some articles in Zwanzig aren't too time sensitive, like the Shutter's World articles with photographers Georg Oberlechner, Chris Polack, Mr. Takeo, Daniel Kralik and Justin Kosman. They make for some good content though. Bjorn Elvering and Patrick Guimez also get an interview in issue 20. The editor's office is a nice place. It shows Sascha Richter hard at work with 20 models. € 2.90 for all this? Cheap!

Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, february 2008: After 21 issues the Zwanzig Zoll crew have managed to finish an issue on time. For 2008 they are trying to do that 4 more times meaning that this year Zwanzig Zoll will come out with five issues. Not only big plans there, Zwanzig will start working on their website soon to make it better. An idea is to put all old issues of Zwanzig Zoll magazines online like we are doing with the FAT-'zines. It's nothing new, but it saves everyone who has been collecting magazines some space in storage. Issue 22 has the following items:
News, Simpel Session, Maxsomenoise, Small Talk Jimmy LeVan & Mark Webb, Jump the Bum, Battle in da Club, Mellowpark Demo, Photo contest, Bcrossionale, Der Eine und der Kleine, Darkwood Jam, Patrick Gross explains Mexico, Hidden Island.

/Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, september 2008: Making a Photo Issue can be easy. It is simple to fill pages with a single photo but it for sure can be tough to make decisions on what picture to use or getting the file from a photographer who is on the road all the time. Anyway, issue #24 of Zwanzig Zoll is labeled the Photo Special but it has plenty of regular content as well. The Highway to Hill contest is one of those events that gets loads of coverage because it happens in Zwanzig Zoll's frontyard. A part of the Zwanzig staff also made it down to Cologne for the BMX Masters and the most fun was had in Austria at Senad Grosic's Cordobar where an Austria-Germany football game on BMX bikes took place. Issue 24 also has a report from the RedBull Elevation comp in Mexico, some dirty girls in a mud bath, a dirty camping tour, product page, news, and Maxsomenoise section. In between all that you will find the killer photos that were announced. They come in four sections and each one has sweet photos.

Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, july 2009: The new issue of Zwanzig Zoll dropped on the doormat yesterday and we dove into it straight away. The editor kicks off the issue with a New-school vs. Old-school editorial which makes a lot of sense. It's in German by the way so if you want a translation, let me know. The other two articles I read were the Markus "Monkey" Braumann pro interview and an interview with Ralf Maier. Both interesting reads. Other than the interviews the mag has reports about trips to Barcelona, Magdeburg and Mainz. Don't forget about the pin-up girl spread, the product pages, reviews and contest reports (Highway to Hill, T-Mob qualifier). All in all a quality full colour magazine that covers the German scene and peeks across the border as well. Add a touch of art (Obey Print Retrospective and a rider/cartoon artist report) and you'll get an impression of what Zwanzig is all about.

Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, july 2010: Just after the new issue of Zwanzig Zoll hit the market, the Berlin crew announced that they've got a new website up. But to get the real feeling of the magazine you have to pick up a copy at the local BMX shop or kiosk over in Germany. You'll find Brian "Brother from an other mother" Kachinsky featured in the new FATBMX.com advertisement. He didn't have to kill himself for this one, he just crossed up the handlebars and added some style.
