MBUK - Top Mag
Man you brits are lucky. I finally got to read this mag (found 1 copy in a store that just happened to be a fluke) and I am amazed at how pathetic our mags over here are in comparison. They lack substance when compared to NA's mag. In this one issue it had everything I could ask for
1 - product reviews (whooptie do everyone does this)
2 - interviews and expose
3 - Tech tips. Not one but many and many. This is the best mag for this that I have found
4 - riding tips for various areas (I love sections like this. I don't know why but if I read details as to how something works I get it first try)
5 - more great expose's
6 - trail reviews
7 - independant company reviews (Small companies getting exposure)
8 - more than 50% of the mag is actual mag and not ads (I understand the need for ads but over 50% and you are pushing it)
9 - no MX stuff
10 - TRIALS, XC, DH, Freeriding. jib. All off road riding need apply. This covers it all not just xc or just dh or just freeriding.
11 - lifestyle stuff and not in a pompous way
All in all this is my dream mag. This is now my favorite mag and will do anything in my power to get this mag full time.
10/10 and cheers to the brits. They own all other mags.
Only downfall is Peat. He is a great rider but there were 4 articles on him or relating to him. But I guess whe Flow goes full production Wade Simmons will be a staple so I won't complain
