The one from a few weeks back sold for bout £15 :shock: hence lots of copycat sellers!

The second one is the free plastic one given away with the jazz mag last month*

It's true that they do aim heavily at the yoof market, but then they do also have good coverage of all of MTB riding styles and sport categories - XC, DH, Trials, just riding, etc, etc.

Name me another mag that promotes such a wide range of mountain biking disciplines with added benefits of a good cartoon.

MBR is just complete nonsense.
Singletrack is a bit clique and doesn't cover the sport side or the more extreme ends of MTBing.
What MTB is (in my opinion) like a good version of Singletrack.
