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…
Brazil-based track bike squad Velodeath has some fancy new artwork, penned by Adams Carvalho and I dig it!
When I turned 30 years old, Lamour Supreme gave me this original artwork. It’s hanging above my desk and I consider it one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. You hear that Joel? Seeing this design on a FYXO shirt brings me back to when I first started riding track bikes in NYC. Back then, I never would have imagined I’d be in Australia riding bikes with FYXO, or even running a blog for a “job”. But that’s the point. I don’t think Joel ever anticipated traveling the world, painting murals and designing vinyl…
We’ve all come a long way and a lot has changed since those days but I’m pumped to see such a classic design reborn. Especially with a FYXO logo!

It doesn’t matter how well seasoned of a cyclist you are. When you find yourself at the Mountains of Madness, you’re in for a surprise. You may not find Mi-go or The Elder Things but you’ll find your inner demons…
