    ProsAs an old motocrosser that grew up reading Motocross Action, I find Mountain Bike Action to be like an old friend. They pioneered the popularity of today's amazing full suspension bikes. Many good tech articles and reviews. MBA rocks.

    I always buy this one as it's got great reviews and I do like the ads, but as far as content, it tends to be a lot of fluff outside of the above. I'm sure I'm above the demographic they're looking for on this one.

    Pros
    Ads
    Reviews
    New products

    Cons
    One continuous advertisement.
    Geared for younger riders

    This mag is a total waste of money. SO may adds. They seem to cover RED BULL events as there main story every month. Just not for me !

    Pros
    Cheap annual subscription

    Cons
    To many ads, a lot of fluff !!!

    It's always a happy day when the latest issue of MB Action shows up in the mail. While the reviews tend towards pretty high end bikes, they certainly give you something to dream about. It was MB Action that, after picking a copy up in the winter of 1996, inspired me to get a new mountain bike, and begin my addiction to trail riding.

    Pros
    Good articles.
    Lots of bike reviews and shootouts.
    Helpful tips.

    Cons
    None.

    Over all not a bad magazine at all. It is packed with good reading each issue.

    Pros
    Lots of reviews and good pictures. very full of different content.

    Cons
    Sometimes it seems like there are endless adds. Sometimes there are complete catalogs in the issues. It seems like the reviews can be a bit influenced, like they are paid to give a good review.

    Pros
    Show alot of different bikes and gear. Love the bike expo reviews though for new products.

    Cons
    Usaully heavy on the big brands like SPEC and TREK. Not to much on the regular "JOES" bikes.

    I have never really gotten into this mag. Maybe I'm just too old.

    GET OFF MY LAWN!

    Seriously though, I find the photography and articles to be better in Bike magazine.

    Pros
    Occasionally a good article between ads.

    Cons
    Too many ads.
    Seems geared more toward the freeride crowd.

    Can't wait for it to come out each month, i guess i should subscribe really and save myself some wedge!

    Pros
    Good spread of articles from Pros to amatures. Love the garage files as i don't like taking my bike to the shop, i'd rather do it myself. Great heads up on bargains too.

    Cons
    Not a lot.

    MTB Action is a great read for any person who loves the sport. They do cover more all mountain and cross country stuff but that is what most of the readers do.

    Pros
    Compare and contrasts different bikes and options that you can put onto bikes. Reviews inexpensive to expensive bikes and gives their opinion on what they should do differently.

    Cons
    none so far
