DIG Issue 63 – March 2008

If print is dead and ‘online’ is the future of communication in BMX, then why are we still producing magazines? The answer is simple. It looks a lot better to us than the Internet, and until there’s a laptop in public bathrooms across the world, a magazine is still a better option for bathroom reading than the web. With that said, we’ve produced another edition of Dig BMX Magazine, issue number 63 to be exact. The photos are quality, the writing isn’t chicken scratch and it’s portability into and out of the bathroom is remarkable. If you like the Internet more, that’s fine. But by producing Dig BMX Magazine, we’re trying to spare you the expense of possibly dropping your laptop into the toilet. And as the next two months of your life rapidly approaches, we’re hoping you’ll make the sensible choice and elect Dig BMX issue # 63 over the Internet for bathroom reading. To entice this moral decision, we’re attaching Dig 63’s table of contents below. Skim through it, become enticed and look for issue 63 of Dig BMX Magazine on newsstands soon. Oh yeah, thanks to the internet for bringing you this public information service…

ON THE COVER: Jim Cielencki: Photo by Ricky Adam (not Rob Dolecki …oops!)

Well, this was quite the surprise to see myself on the cover of Dig. To be on the cover of any magazine is amazing, but to be on a Dig cover is nothing more than an honor. The first time I saw Dig, I borrowed it from a friend along with a copy of Baco 6. At the time, riders were few and far between, the connections provided by the internet were still years away, bikes were twice the weight of today, but Dig provided me with a view on riding that was exactly at my level. They were able to connect people from all around the world who viewed the world on two wheels. It was like there was a BMX movement again, but it was there all along and Dig was the voice. Needless to say, I’m pretty damn stoked right now! This photo was shot while I was on a trip to Berlin to film for the Odyssey Electronical video. It ended up being the last trick I did on the trip and it was somewhere in southwestern part of Berlin. Oh and Ricky Adam shot the photo and coincidently the first ever flash I broke just happened to be Ricky’s!Jim Cielencki, www.sundaybikes.com, February 2008
