- Latest MBUK – "25 years of mtb"
Slightly more content than usual (200+ pages) but otherwise the same
There’s a ‘100 best biking products’ supplement and some stickers as well – woot!
The first issue from 1988 is available on iTunes it’s worth downloading just to see how far we’ve come. Back then it was all lycra, road bike wheels, rigid frames and hardly any gears *cough*Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I’m pretty sure I’ve been mtbing for waaaaay more than 25 years.
They’ve probably picked a more tangible date than “well I took my mums shopper down a gravel track sometime in ’68”. Otherwise I’m sure someone took a penny farthing off road, invented ‘off road cycling’, then decided it was slow and dagerous compared to the road and the idea didn’t resurface untill the 80’s when bikes propperly caught up with the idea.Posted 4 years agojohnnystormSubscriber
It’s quite similar to their 20th Anniversary edition.
The stickers are the usual gaudy crap which are meaningless if you don’t own the product or do dirt jumping and mint sauce is on two pages not one. A few olde classic MS strips wouldn’t have gone amiss. Usual smattering of technical inaccuracies (RS-1 forks and Mag-20s sharing same chassis, etc).
It acts as a good reminder why I subscribe to ST & Privateer and that I haven’t been missing anything by not buying MBUK.
