Pros: Nice pics
Decent reviews

Cons: Mainly East Coast Spots

Recommendation: Another decent magazine that I enjoy looking at, but don't really read cover to cover as it's primarily east coast spots that I'll never ride. Local race coverage...again, I'm not a racer, but I'm sure all the East Coast Racer folks love this one.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Good articles.
Excellent writers.
A slightly different approach.

Cons: None.

Recommendation: Another enjoyable mountain bike magazine that is well written. It's a bit less formal than other MTB magazines and has a bit of an East Coast bias to it. (they are based out of Pennsylvania) This is a nice contrast to other magazines that I do enjoy, but focus more on the West Coast.

Model/Year: 2013

Recommendation: Not sure yet. Just subscribed and eagerly waiting for my first issue. I really like the whole just MTB mag theme. I do have another bike mag but they cover the entire biking styles. Which is nice for tips when you have training to do.

Model/Year: 2013

Pros: Well written
Seems More on my level of People!
Seems a lot less influanced by the industry.

Recommendation: This is my favorite MTB magazine. The articles are very well written and there is a lot of usere submitted content. I like to read my favorite contributers articles and reviews but it is great to get a fresh perspective in there also! I also like the way they call it how they see it in this magazine, not like some of the others that seems to give everything at least a somewhat good review.

Pros: Better local event coverage than some of the other mags. Much more diverse coverage of riding types and styles. Reviews, while normally on high dollar bikes, are usefull.

Cons: Personally, I think the pics fall far behind some other mtb magazines out there. Even though the articles are good, I never really see any pics that inspire me to ride.

Recommendation: A good magazine with more of a "rider based" feel to it rather than industry sales pitches. Wish they had the money to hire some great photographers but that would be my only gripe.
