Singletrack Issue 58: Bike Test Teaser

by singletrackjon 16

Issue 58 of our lovely magazine will be on sale in a day or two – a full list of contents will be up later, but here’s a little (slightly tongue in cheek) teaser video for the Issue 58 Bike Test which uses the theme of 1.125-1.5″ Tapered Headtube bikes.

The bikes we chose to test were the Ghost AMR Lector 7700, Saracen Ariel 2 and a prototype Orange Five that uses some features that are likely to be seen on upcoming production models. Travel is all around the trail bike friendly 120-140mm mark but there’s a wide range of price points and riding characteristics contained within those numbers..

To see exactly what we thought of the bikes, look out for Issue 58 in the shops or join the future and buy a digital sub here.
