|Mark Noble, Ride BMX UK #8, december 1993: In their wisdom, Hi-Torque decided to bring out a freestyle magazine, just when freestyle was huge in the last eighties. Details are sketchy on this one, but suffice to say that it didn't last long, wasn't better than Plus!, didn't have the soul and gut feeling that Freestylin' did, and anyway the editors weren't as hardcore as Lew, AJ, and Spike.|
|Hi-Torque: First, we did a special issue called "Freestyle Spectacular". Then people started asking for more spectacular freestyle, so we bumped it up to bimonthly issues.|
