    Looks good. Arrived early. Terrahawk and his hairy mate are in it. Who do I complain to?

    Yeah, must say I’m a little perplexed at the need to include a review of VAYNS!
    “Oh they’re vans to put your bikes in”
    No, they are vans.
    Not what I personally want to see in a a bike mag.

    S’only a few pages though, so don’t shoot me.

    I’m disappointed there isn’t “van to put my CX bike in” supplement

    What Van/T5 love in seems to cover a lot of threads in here…

    good edition I thought from the how much for a van/lifestyle accessory to guy martin/terrahawk and pyrennees to sea…

    I read it last night, as I rocked back and too, sobbing gently, after last nights trudge through a bog ride

    And I’ve got to say I was very disappointed.I thought we were promised Harry_the_Spider’s smoothie maker review, with recipe supplement, this month? Next month then chaps? Pull your fingers out!

    Great article on Terrahawk and his mate. I keep getting the feeling I’ve seen him somewhere before though

    Interesting article but £32k for a converted van with extra seats in it 😯

    blimey.

    Get yourself a subscription. You also get a fancy square with a P in in next to your name. Then you’re opinions are at least twice as valid as any of the ‘P’less oiks on here.

    it’s sitting on the coffee table. haven’t finished 87 yet, i don’t think. is it any good? quality/volume/content seems to have been up and down like a whore’s drawers since the ‘re-launch’. 😐

    A quick look though last night and it looks like a good one.

    Should we just refer to it as the retro edition, as it has tests on bikes with 26″ wheels 😉

    Saving that for Grit.CX.

    See, you say that – but how many people will buy a van based on what they read in STW? 1? 2?

    (no, I’m not going to let this lie!)

    Some good stuff this month I thought, review section never seems to cover much i’d buy though.

    DezB, you’ve let me down!
    I had ‘third post in’ in the office ‘Mr. Angry rants about our van test’ sweepstake.

    Sorry Mark, missed it by an hour! I did consider starting my own thread, but decided I didn’t really care that much 😉

    Del,
    I’ve been a subscriber from issue one and not really take with the last few editions. This months one is more on par. Long may it continue.

    Oh a review of a VW clitoris………………

    Maybe i’ve just read too many bike mags, but i’ve struggled with the last few ST’s. 87 isn’t finished yet.
    I’ve started on priviteer again from Vol1, maybe i should unsub for a while, a change and all that.

    how come STW never comes with stickers?

    I’m all for non-bike group tests. There is no way that I’ll be spending £3k on a bike at any point in this life time, but I will probably spend £100 on a roof carrier or £250 on a kids’ bike in the next year or so.

    One for estate cars might make quite a fun/imteresting article (I’m not suggesting that STW go out and buy a load of Audis) but there are numerous “What car?” threads. I bet that they could get a few of us to turn up with our own and we could see how many bikes/bodies we could get in them whilst comparing real life fuel economy, cost of ownership experiences etc. Meet at a trail centre. Get some nice pictures. Pinch the prices from Parker’s Guide. Boom! Relevant article on the cheap.

    You wouldn’t even have to pay for the diesel.

    Terrahawk and Guy were talking about tandeming.
    If you’re reading this Terrahawk, you can borrow ours, DO NOT break it though 🙂

    Like the Ratboy article. Met him at Llandegla in January and he was great guy who was happy to chat and take the p**s when required

    thanks, but there’s no need. We’ve got a boffin on’t job.

    I’ve not read it all, but I think this issue looks a lot better (for me) than many of the recent ones. While I’m not in the market for a van I quite like these left-field articles and if you are looking for a vehicle to transport your bikes, where better to turn that ST. It’s not as if Top Gear are going to pay much attention to the needs of mountain bikers.

    The articles on Terrahawk, Guy and Ratboy all look interesting. I also really enjoyed Chipps’ editorial on the Shackleton expedition. Informative and thought provoking, which is exactly what I want from a magazine really.

    More of this sort of stuff and fewer international travel features, would suit me just fine.

    Had a quick rummage this evening. Should pass a couple of decent length train journeys. No problem with the van article, carting bikes and bodies about the place is part of riding. Might be in the market for new chainset soon, so that review is timely and some potentially interesting main articles.

    +1 on the Editorial and International travel which seems to have been a bit overdone of late.
