Buy-Cycling
Filed under: general
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 12:12 pm

Since I’m on about every bicycle oriented mailing list that exists, it
didn’t suprise me that BuyCycling started sending me unrequested copies
of their magazine a few months back.  I must admit, upon receiving
editions like this in the mail, it was pretty easy to resist the
subscription come-on letter:

Until this last month’s edition.  Clearly they have identified the crux of
why I find cycling so compelling.  Such enticing imagery. 
Obviously, this is full of information and resources which I had not
considered before today.

Now, where did I put my checkbook?

Maybe if I hang onto them, I can put together a “flip-book” from the covers….

    They had an interesting feature recently about day laborers who depend on bikes to eke out a living and save for their families. It was a pretty substantial piece, I thought. But they do seem to feel locked into a certain look on their covers.

    every once in a while, they crack off an article which gives me hope that there is a shred of quality left there. But, I pretty much gave up on them when they started doing bicycle reviews in 7 words. I’m still not sure why they suddenly decided to start mailing me issues. Oh well. It’s stopped now.
