At last, it's finally here! the new and improved DicE and in collaboration with Repop MFG. It's bigger (9.5" x 7.75"), it's thicker (132 pages) and it is a whole lot sexier. Every one comes in a cool canvas drawstring bag. This milestone issue is chock a block full of bikes and other great stuff. What's more, as an extra bonus the insert for this weighty tome is a brilliant Thrasher magazine special!
It's not just issue 50, it's Volume 2 Issue 1.
Get your very own copy right H E R E!

It has been SO awesome having my friend Mikyla here with me!! We became friends in photography class in high school and then spent months traveling around Europe together when we were 19, having the time of our lives. It has been a few years since I've seen her and I have been super excited to continue our adventures on US soil! So far we have had a girls weekend in Palm Springs, been motorcycling, she got her first tattoo, AND of course, we got dressed up and went to the shooting range to play with my PINK .22 & .410 gauge shotgun... I wonder how much more cool stuff we can cram into her trip!?
Today, we were wearing:
An odd collection of late 80s/early 90s Betsey Johnson monstrosities.
Jewelry by The Great Frog. But of course, darling.

We are fast approaching the release of our 50th issue, 10 years now and I still can't quite believe we've made it this far, however we bloody well have and it feels brilliant. You may have noticed we have no info or pricing for a subscription on our bigcartel online store. There is a reason for that. About a year ago we decided to revamp the magazine, new layout, new size, more pages, higher quality and with a new feel. We agreed that issue 50 would be the perfect time to launch the all new DicE. We also wanted to keep it under our hats for awhile. However that didn't work out too well, we were so excited we told everyone, we are crap at keeping secrets it turns out. Dean and I have been waiting patiently (?!) for the printers to send us a sample copy. A: because we were going mental just to see if all our work had been worth it and B: to get some idea of postage costs. The new magazine is a larger, thicker format and so therefore heavier. The mailing will be a little more expensive but definitely well worth it. If your sub needs renewing or you want to sign up for one you should be able to do that very soon. Or before you do perhaps order a single issue when it becomes available in 2 weeks time and see what you will be getting for your hard earned cash. As soon as we have figured out prices we will let you know. We are very very pleased indeed and extremely proud of the results. It's not just issue 50, it's Volume 2 issue 1. A whole new beginning. Every issue from now on will be a collaboration of some sort with people and companies we all know and love along with guest editors too. Issue 50 we have teamed up with Jamie from Repop MFG, 50 copies will be collectors limited editions which include some very special one off items made by the man himself, more on that soon. The regular copies all come with something rather special too. We also ran a cover competition for our readers. The response and subsequent artwork was amazing, we tied ourselves up in knots trying decide a winner. In the end we added more pages and picked not one but eight covers all printed alongside each other. Wait though, I'm giving far too much away!
Watch this space!
Matt and Dean..

Devastatingly, the world lost an amazing, beautiful and loving woman on Sunday evening.
Karla Munoz left us when she had a bad motorcycle accident on the 55 freeway in
Orange County, California.
I didn't know Karla personally, but I have heard of the way she would light up any room she walked into with her smile and vivacious personality. She was a truly beautiful person, inside and out.
