Two more bike magazines are gone
Digital only works if you enjoy consuming things in a digital format. I don’t particulairly. Possibly a cultural/age thing. I have no interest in purchasing digital only content. Wasn’t aware of either of the magazines, or either of those digital formats either.
Sad to see people who we’re doing something they enjoyed moving from a format they hopefully enjoyed too.Posted 1 year ago
I’m 100% digital books for normal books.
Magazines need to be printed in my opinion.
This is me too. Odd isn’t it. I have weaned myself off the feel and smell of a novel and can still enjoy the content but can’t get even vaguely excited about magazine content electronically.Posted 1 year agoJackHammerMember
That’s sad news.
I have the digital sub to singletrack.
I originally used to read it on my android phone, but since I got an iPad i’ve been reading it on there and omg it’s so much nicer to read off than the android phone. Not just because the screen is bigger, but the way the application works, the transition between pages and the built in features (videos, photos etc) is so much nicer and smoother and cleaner.
I prefer the digi sub to a paper magazine now.Posted 1 year agotrail_ratMember
I’m trying to wean my self off books and onto a Kindle….But it’s just not the same.
I want to like the Kindle- paper white but as much as I try I get fed up reading it. It hurts my eyes even with the font in large. I also have a tendancy to flick back and forth between books on the Kindle where as I’ll stick with a paper book as I tend not to have the option to flick.
How ever I need to stop with the books as we get through a silly amount in our house. Wife’s gone 100% Kindle for her books.Posted 1 year agobucksterMember
Decline was the Nth American equivalent of Dirt magazine, more gravity orientated.
Surprised that’s gone as it was full of Ad’s, I stopped buying it as got fed up of going through 10 pages of Ads Btw actual articles!!
That was/is why I quite like digital, because the ads move. Its fun to watch videos embedded in a magazine – for me anyway. Decline is quite a good read IMHO. e.g. the Polygon/Suntour articlePosted 1 year agojamesoSubscriber

Agreed. In this area screens are mostly for quick-hit visual snacks or a coffee break read. I’ll subscribe to a well presented mag that has variety and content that interests me but the same quality of image and writing doesn’t come across as well on screen, to me. I imagine it’s a big ask to get a subs mag working, requires a subscriber to have trust in editorial values or quality. Sidetracked gets my £ though so it can work, and I rarely bother reading articles of the same quality on their site.Posted 1 year ago
It’s not good. It was going to be closed completely but got saved because they made the paid employees redundant and drafted in some unpaid volunteers. They are from the OAP demographic and think they have prioritised keeping it open for other oaps. Better than nowt but can only be a matter of time before it closes completely.Posted 1 year ago
