    Bicycling Best of the Best?

    I don't read cycling mags or such, but I think Bicycling does a buyers guide every year or so, right?

    Anyway, just wondering if there's anything like a periodically updated list that kind follows this concept:

    http://www.maximumpc.com/best-of-the-best

    Feasible? Good idea? Bad idea?
    "Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize"
    "So I do not run like someone who doesn't run toward the finish line. I do not fight like a boxer who hits nothing but air."
    "And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us."

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO

    I haven't seen a regularly updated list of cycling products but almost every bicycle related mag has a buyers guide or has an article rating new bikes or gear.
    You don't have to subscribe to any magazine. Simply look through them at the book store (Borders, BN, etc) and buy the ones that have the information you're looking for and want to read.

    For what it's worth, I saw one of their "best" issues, and almost didn't get back into cycling. Actually, it was their mountainbike publication. They seemed really enthused about some model of hardtail that was a fairly good bike even though it came in at slightly less than $2,000. I just knew I was stuck with a Huffy in my price range.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Yeah, maybe we should make a bikeforums.net one. Surely we can reach some sort of consensus. . .
