I may not be a BMX lifer but the Dig BMX Logo has always been visually engaging to me. Growing up in the metal, punk and hardcore scenes, I always found it relevant. Four fists and a chainring (sorry, sprocket), how simple. But what’s the meaning behind it?
Head over to Defgrip to see what Dig’s editor-in-chief, Will Smyth has to say…

“We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!
For the 2nd installment of “By The Numbers”, we’ve called on John Watson/Prolly who runs the website Prolly is Not Probably. Read on.”
Oh no. ANOTHER interview? This one’s quite clever (who did I pick to be on my side in a fight?) and I love me some Defgrip. I’m honored to have made it through the intense lottery process and blood screening.
See my By the Numbers here!
This video is too good. What else would you expect from Defgrip:
“I recently had the opportunity to travel to Japan with Brian Yeagle, KC Badger, Joseph Frans, Broc Raiford, Chad Kerley, Alex Magallan, and Greg Illingworth. They went over there to do demos, but afterwards Brian, KC, Joseph, and I rented a car and took off on our own with the goal of seeing as much of Japan as we possibly could. It was much more of a recreational trip than a riding trip, and we had one hell of a good time. I put together this little video with bits of footage I shot while shooting for a Ride UK article and some footage Joseph shot with his GoPro. Nothing beats exploring interesting and unfamiliar places with your friends.

Kevin Porter is a character. A can-can, coffee cup-carrying, BMX ripper. Defgrip dives right into Kevin’s morning brew with a great Q&A about his new endeavors with Bow Truss Coffee Roasters. It’s a great interview! Check it out here.
The northwest offers up some superb riding, best tackled via touring or credit card touring. The long, arduous days clear the mind and purge all weight that found itself on your shoulders. Sandy Carson, Taj Mihelich and Seth Holton have an excellent Photogallery up on Defgrip from their recent tour. You’ve gotta check it out! As a side note: Taj did this on his Weekender, a great 1×10 “light tourer”.
MacNeil and Defgrip worked on some incredibly well-branded grip packaging. Oh and I’m sure the grips are solid too. Pick up a set at your local BMX shop.
Defgrip mentioned something last month about seeking artists to do wallpaper for their site, prompting Australia’s Bohie Palecek to hop on it. This is sick. So much alchemist symbolism in this one. Also, the Aussies love their “hoop snakes”, which we call Ouroboros. Pick up higher-res versions here, for FREE at Defgrip.
