Privateer Issue 8 goes on sale tomorrow the 16th March 2012. If you haven’t subscribed already be sure to check out the special Retrobike subscription offer.
In the new issue, and of particular retro interest, we have:
*Steve Peat talks to Tym Manley about his career to date, and why de doesn’t plan on quitting at the top.
*Next on the agenda, Andy Waterman visits Nicolai Bikes in Germany to uncover the human faces behind these teutonic classics.
*Later on in the magazine, another Mike, Mike Davies, continues his look at the technical side of mountain biking with an in depth look at the science of the bicycle wheel. There’s more to it than you might think…
Elsewhere, we interview John Lloyd, prolific organiser of endurance events such as the Trans-Wales and the CRC Marathons and Mike Hall talks us through his ’Brotherhood of Pain’, a crack squad of stamina junkies.
Last but not least, we speak to Stan Day, the man at the helm of SRAM, a company that has gone from being the manufacturer of a single-product – Gripshift – to an umbrella company for components ranging from hub gears to downhill forks.
