by singletrackjon 21

Well, that time of the month has swung round once again and the latest issue of Singletrack Magazine has been finished. It’s taken a load of blood and sweat, tears and tantrums but our beautiful baby has been sent to the printers and, come the 20th October, will be landing in shops and on subscriber’s doormats across the country.

Of course, if you’re a Digital Subscriber then it’ll be available for download instantly in a number of iDevice, smartphone and ereader friendly formats, with loads of gallery and video extras for you to check out.

Anyway, enough chit chat – here’s what will be in the next issue…

  1. Issue 69? Does this mean that the front cover is a bit bigger than the rear cover hence making the magazine look a bit odd but actually work quite well?

  2. My favourite issue number!

  3. Ooh goody! Mud tyre tests just as I’m on the look out.

  4. *refreshes magarchive furiously*

  5. do you know if it’s arrived at sainsburys braehead yet?

  6. Which Rose is reviewed?

  7. Fall! What happened to Autumn?

    Will you be doing a Holiday special or will it be a Christmas edition?

  8. “our beautiful baby has been sent to the printers and, come the 20th October, will be landing in shops and on subscriber’s doormats across the country.”
