Most Buyer’s Guides suck–they’re little more than catalog copy rolled into a “special issue”.

That blows.

Which is why we do it very differently at Bike Magazine.

For our Bible of Bike Tests, we take some of the most promising bikes and gear, and we actually flog the hell out of it on some of the best trails in the world. Next, we fill a magazine with what amounts to an entire year’s worth of legitimate, interesting and thoroughly kick-ass product reviews. That magazine–Bike’s Bible of Bike Tests–will soon be on newsstands (and Apple Newsstand for all the digital-inclined types) next week.
