Albion 5 Cover

Albion hit us up with their fifth cover to post the other day, but our site has been messed and we finally got it sorted. Sorry for the down time and here’s a look at the new cover. Dope as always!

First Look: Albion 4 Cover

Here’s your first look at the cover to Albion 4.

The cover features an illustration by Chris Wright , and the content of the issue can be found in the illustration. Any guesses?

All of the Albion covers have been pretty interesting, and this shows they are willing to have fun with it too.

Albion 4 Release Jam

In association with Brixton Cycles, DubBMX and Volt, The Albion will be holding a low key jam at Brixton Skatepark in London on Saturday October 1st, to mark the release our 4th issue. Afterwards there will be piss up in The Queen’s Head pub just across road from the skatepark.

Check back friday for your first look at the Albion 4 cover. Expect the unexpected…

First Look: Albion 3 Cover

Featuring a blind emboss of their three sided triangular logo. So simple, yet so good.

Available soon. Visit their site for info.

First Look: Albion #2 Cover

Here is your first look at the cover of Albion #2, which releases on June 1st.

Albion is available free through all good UK BMX shops, and subscription only outside the UK. This mag comes highly recommended by yours truly (that’s me), so hit up the Albion site for info.

The first issue was remarkable, so I can’t wait to see this one.


Nick Ferreira. The dude behind Holeshot zine (R.I.P.) and currently Challenger BMX magazine. He’s been putting out printed BMX goodness for a long time. Knowing this, I started wondering what printed goods get him stoked or inspire him, so I hit him up to find out.

Click below to check out a few zines/magazines that Nick is into, along with some words about each one from the man himself.


Q&A: Eisa Bakos / Endless Mag

Eisa Bakos, endless mag, bmx

Endless Mag sprung up out of nowhere in the wake of Ride UK’s print demise. It seemed like support was instant for the new venture. While the first issue is still yet to come out, Eisa has been busy on the road keeping the Endless Instagram active, dropping features on the site and presumably gathering content for issue 1.

I hit up Eisa Bakos to throw some questions his way regarding Endless. Click below!
