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.


Zines, Zines, Zines.

zines, bmx, union press, yo sick, the pandect, DBZ

Lot”s of creative and interesting people from the BMX-osphere often send their zines my way. It”s a nice gesture and it”s always cool to flip through these things and get a glimpse into certain scenes or a particular persons thoughts, ramblings, doodles etc… These things are generally labors of love and you can tell.

Below are some zines that I”ve gotten recently, and not so recently. I would easily recommend checking any of these out, should you be into this sort of thing. Any support for these projects is always appreciated I”m sure.

Union Press – More of a newspaper than a zine, but falls in line with the category. Well done and large posters to be had.

– From the mind of DBZ. The description on his site says it all. Interesting reads and visuals.

Yo Sick – From Prashant Gopal. Full of photos, illustrations and plenty of stuff to keep your eyeballs occupied.

The Pandect – From Cory Beal. Cool interviews, photos and nice layout.

We posted on Adam Roye”s goodies previously, and check out Ryan Connelly”s ICE COLD (which can be viewed online).

Thanks dudes!


Animal X Defgrip t-shirt

We teamed up with Animal Bikes and Edwin De La Rosa to produce a t-shirt featuring a photo that ran in the FW 2010 lookbook on Defgrip. The shirts are limited to 75 pieces and all ship with a full color zine featuring photos from the lookbook. The zine is really dope and we are stoked on how the shirts turned out.

So stoked in fact that we are also running a second design in three colors featuring a different photo that will be available on the Animal online store as well as your local bike shops!

Click here to pick up one of the limited shirts/zines from our online store and keep reading to check out more photos of the shirt.
