Issue 10, Winter 98/99
The latest issue of the UK's best (and possibly least-seen) riding magazine is out. As usual, it's a great mix of words, photos, design, and music, all wrapped around the world of BMX. Lots of stuff to keep you interested: news, reviews, jam and contest coverage (lots of European stuff), and a pictorial. All aspects of riding are covered, and there's even a short section devoted specifically to flatland coverage and opinions ("Flat Earth Society"). Dig's design is cool and original (makes me feel like crap), and the only bad thing I can say about it is the use of very small fonts. Lots of people contribute to Dig, so there are a lot of varying thoughts and opinions: five different guys wrote pieces on the MTV Sports and Music Festival 2 alone, giving good overall coverage of the contest (both what happened during the event and stuff happening around it). The "Street Riders's Etiquette Guide" was a nice follow-up to the "Trail Riders's Etiquette Guide" from a previous Dig, and the music section is short but sweet -- this time around there's an interview with Blake from Jets to Brazil. If your bike shop doesn't carry Dig, write to 'em and get a copy yourself.
