    I bought it. Not horrible, although a bit to political for me.

    I read it at B&N. Not that great nor that bad. Just ho-hum. Its interesting in that fact that it seems to be soliciting articles written by regular joes (commuters). At least that's the impression I got. I read Dirt Rag from time to time and I find it interesting. I do hope that Bicycle times finds a place.

    I wasn't impressed.

    If you want to spend money on something, buy Urban Velo. Not as glossy, but cheaper (or free online) and better content.

    Haven't heard of it. If I'm in B&N I'll go check it out.

    Well, now I've heard of Urban Velo. And I've checked it out on the web. Very nice. I grew up in Manhattan and cycled there for many years. We may move back there when the kids are gone, too.

    I saw a copy at the Bike Summit a couple of weeks ago, then found one on the rack at Barnes & Noble the weekend before last, and took one hime to read. I liked it. Of course, compared to Bicycling, it's some really good stuff ;-) I'm a fan of Dirt Rag as well, and this new one appears that it's going to be pretty good as well.

    Urban Velo serves pretty much a specialty market, but it's an excellent read as well.

    I have a subscription. First issue was pretty good. It's basically the only mag out there focusing on daily riders and not just roadies and MTBers.

    I subscribed just based on the concept, but I haven't gotten an issue yet.
