I liked the beanie and gloves, they both fit. But the keyring thing is shocking quality, I know its a free gift but it really is shocking, the keyring bits are more like ovals and a complete mess. You should have given us a calendar instead,

The Norco socks in this months mag Look good quality except mine have Norco along the top then Norco.com under on one sock. The other only has N R O then no o,c. .pretty crap really. I'm not riding round wearing billy odd socks

Any ideas how i can get them replaced, I know they're free but so what. Pointless having a free gift that's faulty & claimed to be worth £10.

This months is a waterproof type pouch for holding phone/mpe player etc. I thought it looked really useful and used it this morning as it was tipping down. However it split down the side as soon as I opened it to get my phone out.

For me it was pointless even having it attached to the magazine as it didn't even survive one outing.

I do look forward to the neck tube next month, I lost my last MBUK one.

Just got my last magazine of my subscription (recently cancelled), no free gift this month. Next month it is a caribener keyring (I am sure I've had one of them before and it was crap then).

Only decent gifts have been the gloves (useful to keep in the car), the socks and the beanie. The waterproof pouch broke the first time I used it, the caribener keyring broke within about a month and scratched my phone in my pocket, then the allen keys rounded off in no time.

I know they are "free" gifts but if it breaks in minute its just gonna fill a landfill!

do pull out maps counted as free gifts? haha
anyway...a few issues i bought in Jakarta, Indonesia have no maps to pull out :(
I know i'm in Jakarta...far away from those locations on the map...probably not gonna use them.
but i wonder, is this accidental or what? does anyone else have this problem too?

Sorry, the maps aren't available to overseas readers. Not our choice, there's legal reasons behind it.

The socks and chainstay protector were the best 2 free gifts you ever did...

I'd like some more socks please! :D

or maybe a large trail guide, like the routes you give out, but a book of them... :wink:
