Here's what's in this issue

Issue 61 will shortly be on sale in lots of places but if you are Premier Subscriber then you can access all the extra features that we’ve stuffed into the digital versions right here.

Bike Test – 2011 Bikes

Three bikes get the Singletrack treatment this issue and here are the video clips to view here or download in m4v format. Unfortunately we don’t have the video clip yet for the Nuke Proof Mega as our test bike had to go back double quick sharp like as it was one of only two in the country and was in great demand earlier this month.

Alt Racing

Benji gives us the lowdown on the new breed of mountain bike race formats. Keep your lycra skinsuit under the bed. These events offer racing with all the rewards and none of the negatives. In this video Benji and Matt head for Fort William for a new kind of DH endurance event. Some might even say it’s the future of mountain biking πŸ™‚

This issue is particularly stunning in terms of photography, even if we say so ourselves. We know that many of you appreciate a good picture on your desktop and so we’ve created a couple of desktop wallpaper images from two of our favourite images from this issue.

The first is the opening shot of our Route Guide feature – Berkshire Woodlands.

  1. “Issue 61 is now on sale in lots of places” but it hasn’t come through my letter box yet πŸ™

  2. Ah.. That will be edited in a mo… it’s NOT yet on sale in lots of places other than as a digital issue. This story was originally planned to be published a few days hence.. Hang on… πŸ™‚

  3. “Unfortunately we don’t have the video clip yet for the Nuke Proof Mega as our test bike had to go back double quick sharp like after the only other one in the UK was stolen in London earlier this month.”

    No… not really. A Scalp (our DH bike) got stolen – there are only 2 Mega’s, and they had to go to Italy (not Spain) for testing last week. Back in the UK now though.

  4. Oooh! Any chance of one coming via the office for an hour or so to video?

  5. How about some bigger res wallpapers 1680×1050 would be good.

  6. Oh you built me up and just knocked me straight back down then:-)
    I’m going away on friday and was hoping to make it STw-tastic.

  7. “1680Γ—1050 would be good.” 1920×1200 would be better πŸ˜‰

  8. I’ll do new resolution sizes tomorrow and update πŸ™‚

  9. or perhaps 2560×1440? ;);)

  10. Is the first photo a bird or bloke?

    Thanks for the 2nd photo

  11. I cannot download Singletrack 61, it says error

  12. I’m getting an error message too. Help STW!!!

  13. Sorry, you caught us in the middle of an update. The error shouldn’t happen again.

  14. it works now… thank you

  15. Ah.. That will be edited in a mo… it’s NOT yet on sale in lots of places other than as a digital issue. This story was originally planned to be published a few days hence.. Hang on…

    I see it hasn’t been edited, it is on sale in WHSmith but hasn’t yet dropped through the letterbox… πŸ™

  16. Picked it up from the LBS on Saturday. Read it cover to cover.

  17. Why-o-why are the pics of the Old Mountain Bike WCs in black-and-white?! Please post them in their full fluoro glory…
