    I have this issue… Bought from the bike show at the NEC. I seem to recall asking for a job as a designer as well.

    Knew it would happen eventually recycling articles just like the other MTB mags (I’ll give you credit that your timescale is a tad longer than some of the others)

    Nice one – I have a P7. I like the quote:

    ‘ I think mountain biking as a sport has levelled off.’

    …don’t think I agree with him 10 years on!!…

    the first article i rememmber was about riding in the shadow of three different nuclear power stations (Quantocks, Snowdon and Lake District I recall) that was in an issue given out free at the Schwinn 100 in September 2001. Was that Issue 2?

    amazing how pessimisticly wrong MB turned out to be.

    Watch out dutch cyclists.
