Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, november 2005: 'Zines used to be black and white xeroxed pages stamped together. The technique and colour copiers have definitely changed things. Welcome to ilame 'zine # 2. The Swiss BMX freestyle book is made by Nonda with the help of fellow Swiss riders. Total printed: 200 copies.
It reports about the scene in Switzerland but also some travel is involved. The issue we received from Nonda has the Xmas Jam report, a IBMXFF World's report from Prague, Greece scene story, the Hoefen Trails, Geneva Jam, the Carhartt Ravage and some fun stuff like how to modify your sledge with some BMX handlebars.
The 'zine is in German.
