|Chopper e' la prima ed unica rivista italiana 100% freestyle bmx.
La rivista e' gratuita. Chopper si finanzia con la pubblicità (Italian distributors of Etnies, Carhartt, WUP, and others, ...)
|Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, 2000: Language: Italian.
Rating: * /5
The Italian squad get one star for effort. In a country where the freestyle scene is really small and the core guys need to do everything, producing a magazine is really hard. There is little support from bicycle companies to advertise, there are only a few riders in Italy, the spots might not be the greatest, but a magazine can get people stoked on BMX. Lorenzo and his friends feel that there is a growth in freestyle, they feel it's coming and they are prepared for it. Support Chopper!

|Chopper crew stopped it with this issue due to money and time problem (every of this guys was making it for fun not as a job).|
|Manlio, www.wup-bmx.com, january 2004: At the moment nobody are interested to restart this mag, but I think it will be a good thing to have a "National" mag.|
