Anyone read it yet?

Looks like its aimed half way between rouleur and cycling+

and an introductory subscription offer of 3 issues for £5 is nice.

I enjoyed it - good magazine, though I wonder how it'll pan out over the next few issues. Quite a lot of pretty stock articles though ("which best bib short", "which best wheel" etc) but a couple of other good articles (Wiggins and the cyclists who rode some Swiss Mountains).

The writing isnt as good as ProCycling, but it's clearly not that sort of magazine... something of a hybrid between ProCycling and Cycling Plus with a bit of Cycle Sport thrown in, with the aesthetic feel of Rouleur / Peloton!

The front cover looks retro as hell, is that a conscious styling choice? is the rest of it like that?

Just picked up a copy today and it looks good, but at £5 an issue I don't think I'll be buying it every month.

to be fair you can get the next 3 issues for £5 to decide if you like it or not.

Not read the issue on the sofa yet, nor paid for it either :) Might go with the three for fiver deal to see how it pans out in the forthcoming issues.

I got a copy of issue 1 for free - think it was due to me being Gen Sec of my cycling club.
I liked it, it's a little thin but the contents were pretty good I thought - maybe it will pick up more advertisers etc so it will be a thicker mag in months to come if it's sales numbers gets high enough.
Wiggins article to interest the masses, bit on power meters not necessarily new but not bad to pull all the ones together but not a particularly critical piece with good/bad points (reliability etc).
I have plumped for the £5 for 3 issues offer but as I get ProCycling and Cycle Sport on subscription already I will cancel if they aren't going to add anything as I barely have time to read these mags as it is but I do like having these each month.
It could be good but could also be a slightly more expensive mix of what is already out there.

I'll read it in the library, they usually have most mags in there.

Brave or foolish to be launching something in a format that is dying on it's ars*, time will tell. I honestly couldn't tell you the last mag I bought in any of the hobbies or interests I have.

Hmm, must be honest, I thought that. I received an e-mail during the Olympics - and that's what I thought.

I signed up for the £5 for 3 issues offer and they do it in Ipad version as well.

Seems like a nice mag - it will replace my Cycling Active subscription perfectly!

What exactly do you get with the iPad version? I don't have an iPad yet but I am getting one at the end of the month so I was just wondering what type of extras you get.

I read it last week laying on a sun lounger in Corfu (trying to even out my cyclist tan lines!). Throughly enjoyed it. Also it's published by the same company as my favourite car magazine, Evo.

I thought the photography accompanying the article about riding in the Swiss Alps was very good. Made me want to get out there until I remembered how much I hate the hills in Cambridgeshire let alone the Alps!

In fairness though, if you climb a mountain in the Alps you are rewarded with a stunning and awesome view. Climb a hill in Cambridgeshire and... ;)
