- Singletrack 2012 Calendar
I’d like to complain about the Knog page too. Not a faux lesbian scene in sight. Exactly how am I meant to upset my female work colleagues then, Eh? Did you think of that? Clearly not! Thoughtless! That’s what it is!

… this year’s Knog advert.
I was just thinking that – I hope this year it can be a calendar of nice mountain biking pictures, rather than some horrible advertising shots that mean I have to put the calendar away for a month.
Please don’t advertise in the STW calendar unless your advert consists of a nice mountain biking picture – if you do, I promise that I won’t buy any of your products ever.

I’ve checked through the current Knog catalogue and can’t really find anything that would upset the delicate sensibilities of ST readers.Posted 8 years ago
Apart from maybe this page. Which features a man in the nuddy on a bicycle (edited for you). And a young lady in small shorts (with obvious bike skillz)
I hope it’s this one.
I don’t know whether you get it or not. Though given mine has just come with issue 70, so if they never send you anything normally, how/why would they send you just the calender? Unless they send it digitally?
Anyhow, Knog 2012 calender page, I’d say a let down, similar to the ‘scrapbook’ style of above, but black and white and done over a picture of somewhere urbanPosted 8 years ago
At least the previous knog pictures were actual pictures, even if they (generally) a bit naffaracerMember
I’m left wondering what Charge were thinking. I mean presumably they paid for that picture to be in there? Who in their right mind thinks “ooh look, they have a race team, I’ll buy some of their stuff”?
Last year’s Knog one was the couple with locks? Well I suppose this years is a slight improvement in that I might not feel the need to rip the picture out when it gets to their month.Posted 8 years agoalfabusMember
got mine last night…
the knog and charge ones are stupid – I will put them on my list of brands to never ever buy and will probably take the calendar down for those months (last year I did that when the knog one came around and then I forgot to put it back up again).
some of the other adverts have managed to have nice biking pictures; not that hard, is it?

Just got my calendar and ever picture is excellent apart from Knog’s again. Why are they even in that calendar? They’re a second rate manufacturer of trendy bits for commuters and city fixie riders and have nothing to do with mountain biking at all.
And, if Singletrack justify Knog’s advert, as they did last year with “They’re paying for it, they can do what they like”, then No, they aren’t paying for it – we are, as buyers of the mag, the intended audience of the other advertisers and the likely buyers of these other advertisers’ products.
Go tell Knog to take their junk and naff ads for it elsewhere.Posted 8 years agoaracerMember
Why are they even in that calendar?
Doubtless somebody will be on shortly to point out that it’s paying for our nice free forum, and without the money from Knog they’d have to make somebody redundant. I still don’t really understand why STW towers can’t maintain editorial control over their own calendar and suggest politely to Charge and Knog that they might do better with pictures which are likely to actually get displayed on the wall rather than torn out.Posted 8 years ago
