Excellent writing, interesting articles and the photography is great.
But the bike test features two complete bikes both of which cost over £3500 and a top spec custom build on a £1500 frame.
Along with last issues comment that £2000 is the 'classic first mountain bike budget' I really wonder who you are aiming the mag at these days.
Certainly doesn't appear to be the majority of people who post on here.
Most of the STW'ers I've met don't have a bike collection that cost £3500, let alone a single bike.
I know I've posted about this before, but it's just getting a bit daft now.
I don't feel the bike review section (and by extention, the mag itself) is aimed at me or anyone I know anymore.
Which makes me feel a bit sad, tbh.
Add a tyre review with far more 29er tyres than 26ers, when the STW polls suggest that almost twice as many people are planning to buy a 26er than a 29er to replace their current bike and I'm even more confused.
The clothing article was funny though.
