Bike Test – 2011 Bikes
Three bikes get the Singletrack treatment this issue and here are the video clips to view here or download in m4v format. Unfortunately we don’t have the video clip yet for the Nuke Proof Mega as our test bike had to go back double quick sharp like after the only other one in the UK was stolen in London earlier this month.

Benji gives us the lowdown on the new breed of mountain bike race formats. Keep your lycra skinsuit under the bed. These events offer racing with all the rewards and none of the negatives. In this video Benji and Matt head for Fort William for a new kind of DH endurance event. Some might even say it’s the future of mountain biking 🙂
This issue is particularly stunning in terms of photography, even if we say so ourselves. We know that many of you appreciate a good picture on your desktop and so we’ve created a couple of desktop wallpaper images from two of our favourite images from this issue.
The first is the opening shot of our Route Guide feature – Berkshire Woodlands.
The second is from our Chris Akrigg gallery feature by Sam Needham
