Keep up the good work guys, I like seeing the shiny new shit. There are some kill joys on net, but screw them. I'd rather be in Vegas checking out some new shit. Nice work if you can get it.
are we really interested in interbike
TBH I'm with Dasnut if his meaning was what I perceive, to paraphrase "better to ride a bike than read about riding one".
Mark - I can't tell, there's loads of smilies in there but you look, to me, as if you've gone off on one there almost as much as Mrs "Fizzy" did with you?
Just me two peneth worth but if you don't like the content of the mag do something about it and contribute! I did. Think about what you'd like to read and then write it.
Has anyone considered that unlike other publications singletrack magazine does not feature pages and pages of interbike/eurobike coverage.
Therefore rather than publishing pages of pictures and captions two or three times a year(lazy bike journalism in my not very well informed opinion), the singletrackers actually compose most of their articles, a process that takes time obviously. Publishing their trade show coverage on the website allows them to do this.
I am a big fan of singletrack magazine and like the ideology it embraces and the diversity of contributors. The lack of a rigid formulaic approach keeps the magazine fresher than the competition but this inevitably means that the magazine may not always hit the same standards every issue.
I for one love the bike show coverage (drooling over stuff I can't hope to own)and find the videos amusing.
mark as you say it's the internet and forums. It makes some brave, some rude and some just speak shit. Singletrack forum especially.
I can't really say the mags gone downhill cos i didn't renew my sub over a separate matter, and maybe there are quality problems but i do wonder if theres a bit of a bandwaggon effect.
close the forum! that'll teach em
mind you they'll just find somewhere else to whinge. like twatter or whatever it is.
me, i'm just here for the chicks.
mistergnar in "I act like a **** and people don't like me shocker"
Yes and plumb is right. You want skilled rider watch pro videos. Last timed I checked mistergnar wasn't featured in the credit of any of the world disorder series or the cranked.
Oh hand on I know why it is probably not to make the other people ridiculous...
I have no idea what you just said!
like the site the way it is just 1 to many bellends for my liking you know their names and you just walk on bye
do not buy the mag that said do not buy any mags as i find the type face to small to read and also i like black print on white background as i cannot focus on it for to long ( signs of old age creeping in)
I have to put up with pratts alday long who know it all but not when i have left their house they dont
Mark you need to get stuck in to these hide behind a keyboard hoodies and let them know if they are in the wrong, could say thats the problem with this shit hole of a country we live in..AAAAAArrrr its sunday i must chill KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
all bike mags are crap
Much in the way that the internet has - for all its greatness - completely failed to kill off the book (no **** way am I gonna read Anna Karenina on a laptop, give me a battered old paperback, anytime), there is still a market for well-produced magazines. IMO, the sheer (and often overwhelming) omniscience of information on the web has made the simple act of reading a book/mag an all-the-more tangible pleasure. By way of example, I only started reading Bike in 1995 or so - but I've kept every copy since. And there's a holy trinity of 'em (March/April/May '98) that is up there with my favourite reads, ever.
