Yes it is, I just got mine in the mail today. I ended up shooting Luke Metcalf a message on facebook. His story hit closest to home for me.

A couple of months after I let my subscription expire, the interesting articles start being published.

Buycycling Magazine articles often show up online a month or so after the print issue. Just look for the cover photo of the impossibly large-quaded young man standing out of the saddle on a 5 thousand dollar bike, shot from below and to the front-right of the rider.. The headline is "New Year, New Bike, New You!" Other articles are five pages of reviews of carbon-fiber water bottle cages, Bill Strickland writing for ten pages about the inner peace he finds from contemplating the wonder of SRAM Red, and the "Only Century Training Plan You Will Ever Need" which appears every other issue.
