wow, totally forgot about dirt rag. i just picked one up for the first time last week and it was pretty good. my favorite part about the whole mag was that the bike reviews were completely honest and didnt talk only about the positives of a bike.
Mountain Bike Action and Mounatin Biking are a complete joke! The worst thing about MBA is that they criticize riders for making illegal trails, and then they send their "so called" test riders out to local spots, which are pirate trails, to test FR and DH bikes.
As for Mountain Biking, well I think that speaks for itself. I grabbed one from the shelf at a local bike shop, and had to wonder: Is anyone actually buying this magazine? It was really thin, it seemed like only had 60 pages. Not to mention that the coverage was just terrible...
looking for a new magazine tor ead so decided to bring back this thread for some answers, i am between decline and mountain bike action. keep in mine that i want to read things that will kepp me updated with the newest gear, and have info about races and the racers opinions. lets just say new news
Honestly, I don't really like any MTB mag out there right now. The best is probably Decline because of the format, photos and DH/FR content, but the writing is ummmm...leaves something to be desired. The pictures are pretty, but the articles are filler.
Decline is nice.. very into dh/fr and huge color pics
I have a subscription to a lot of mags.. my wifes union (teachers)gets they really really cheap. My favorite has to be Dirtrag. Bike is awesome for there pictures and most of there content and I find Bicycling the best for imformative stuff
