Some accompanying video of stuff that’s in the new issue of Singletrack Mountain Bike Magazine.
There’s some bits of us ripping around on test bike in some lush Welsh woodland… Benji returns to his old stomping ground of Gisburn Forest and play on the frozen “Diet DH” stuff there… Ed and Greta Oxley comprehensively test out the Kona Ute (cheese, wine, wheels, beer, ham etc)… STW Test Squad head over to Wharncliffe… Singletrack bar end caps…
The theme for issue 48 is “Roots/Beginnings”. Centring on the beginnings of the sport, the beginnings of our own riding and the bikes and places we used to ride.
On the reviews front we have a feature called “Handbags” which is about the contents of different types of riders’ rucksacks.
Bikes reviewed: Orange ST4, Commencal Super 4, Turner 5 Spot, Cannondale Moto Carbon, Scott Genius, Kona Ute and an update on our Long Term Test Bikes.
Special thanks to Ed (and Greta) Oxley. For more Oxley thrills visit great-rock.co.uk
