Talking of old mags then, anyone remeber MTB Monthly? Lasted about 18months and too changed format near to its death, (I was owed some money for an article I writ for them and got only a few quid from their liquidators!) Andy Bently was Ed and Paul Smith did all tests/tech etc. Very ‘northern’ too. Was always my favourite til STW ofcourse. I would be interested if anyone knows what happened to the staff?
I have issue one of the first What Mountain bike (not the one that’s now published by Future). From about 1996 if I recall correctly and only lasted two issues before it was pulled… Can anyone remember who published that?
Yeah Total bike was good Chris Duncan (Endura) used to write for them
he also done a cracking fanzine style mag called Pump
kinda stopped buying mags few years back
although the Ride journal is a fantastic read well worth £7
