Strength:

Hilarious! this magazine makes me want to read, articles will make you laugh!

Weakness:

based out of the uk, but the only reason this is a weakness is becasue i live in the USA and its hard to find, and subscription process is a lil difficult. its also a bit pricey

Great magazine, huge good quality photos (and lots of 'em) many different articles on all types of riding, different bikes/manufacturers, funny stories, interviews, and coverage on most major events. this is not a pathedic little booklet on mountain biking it is a huge magazine that has plenty to offer for everyone. subscribe and you won't regret it

i have only had one name   Downhiller [Dec 04, 2001]
Strength:

God like, sums up riding for me.
written by riders for riders. doesn't lick anyones ass (BCF, Sponsors, certain riders,) like MBUK does.
Good reviews, actualy test the bike's for what they are intended for, ('no MBUK, the Intense doesn't go up hills very well does it, surprising that').
Superb photos, the guys at the local photography shop where my mate works are now subscribers (they don't ride)!!!
Quality articles on stuff i actualy give a s**t about (not some s**t about Barbie!).

Doesn't just concentrate on the big riders, has loads of up and coming young 'uns, the ladees and the older guys. I prefer reading about the guys that i chatted to at the last race than the international superstar who hasn't got enough time to race the smaller races!

Weakness:

only out every 2 months.

Ruling, it makes me want to ride big time.

All the forgeners who cant get it; why dont you get a subscription, i think its cheaper as well.

Strength:

Brilliant articles, Amazing photography and layout, makes you wanna ride, the people who write it are actualy involved in the scene..

Weakness:

Only out every 2 months

Brilliant magazine... makes you want to ride. photography is stunning, like the guy below, i showed the guys at a local photography shop a mag, to see how a certain effect was done; they now have a shop sub, and leave them out on the counter for customers to read!! Good way to promote the sport!

Yea, all those people having trouble getting it, just get a sub, you get a t-shirt, and have it dropped onto the mat for a year! nice! It's comparatively cheap as well..

American and Auzzie ones as well, they tend to take themselves a bit too seriously!

I been getting this mag for 3 years now, even continued my sub when i moved to Japan.
Great for downhill action, and has a sense of humor too.

Strength:

-Not american!!!!!!!
-sweet kit I'd never heard of
-lots of stuff: pics, words, good UK companies
-has lots of dirt in the pictures rather than palm trees or some other stupid thing you find in American mags
-dual bikes!
...etc

Weakness:

$11CND = Fuc|<1n expensive in Montreal

could somebody email me up if they know of a cheaper way to get it round here?

Why bother get anything else? If you don't have the cash don't buy a magazune at all. It doesn't have urban stuff but nobody else does either. I think i'll ring up the guys there and tell so.

it gets full marks cuz nothing is better

Phil   Downhiller [Sep 02, 2001]
Strength:

Good layout, photos, reviews. Writen by riders.

Weakness:

None really, could have more pages, maybe?

This mag rules. Its cheaper than MBUK with the bonus of not having all the XC stuff that doesn't interest some people. If you want a good quality mag about BSX and DH then get this, because nothing else comes close to the quality.

Kyle   Cross-Country Rider [Jul 16, 1999]
Strength:

Beautiful Layout
Fantastic Pictures
Glossy
Interesting

Weakness:

Expensive, limited in scope, somewhat difficult to read

This is a realy great mag. It is geared towards a sweet DS, jumping, urban assault type of riding that is largly ignored over here. The quality of layout and design is on par with some of the best British music and style magazines and is better than the already good BIKE mag. The racing articles are all featuring British riders, so they might not be that engaging. However, I recomend this mag just as much as I would MBA, Mountain Bike, or Bike. All good magazines that fill a differnt niche.

Strength:

none of that XC Stuff even tho I got nothing against XC
just stright DH and biker cross stuff

Weakness:

Pretty Damn Expensive
wish they had some urban assults pics and articles

This magazine is really good I like it alot compare it to all the others. but then again this is my opinion

it takes you away the XC stuff

Right now all I can say if you like Xtreme mountain biking this magazine is for you

but Iam giving it a 4 over all cause its expensive where U live

Andrew   [Dec 30, 2000]
Strength:

Really good angle on the Dh and BSx scene, has some cool articles on some cool people,Nice layout,stylish as well. Some reviews for kit is done by sponsored riders who can really push a bike to its limits.Not loaded down with big ads like some mags are.Pursuaded me to do a DH race.

Weakness:

only comes out every 2 months.Some times black words on black background?

Really good magazine, back issues are still interesting to read. I would reccomend it to anybody who has a passing interest in DH,BSX or jumping. If you need to know what parts work and what does not, Appears to tell it like it is. Think Sprung video on paper. I love it and think its ace.
