I will be interested to see the throwdown between Pinkbike staff and BETA staff.... as long as I don't have to pay for it.
I suspect we'll see a lot more sponsored content. I'm sure we'll see more sponsored travel destination content too. Get ready for lots of "mountain bike capital of the world" tourists articles! Brought to you by walmart.

What else did they buy? Didn't they have some financial issues of their own so they moved to an online subscription model?
They bought the actual Outside. All of it. Trees, rocks, roots, dirt, streams - the whole lot. Access to outside spaces is available only with the premium subscription.

And TrailForks? It already began the downward slide with the annual subscription fee but I suspect that was nothing compared to what is in store...

The annual subscription fee may become payable monthly. Among other things.
I don't mind the fee, my work has value and so does theirs. The fee was also pretty small. But I value good UX.

I hope they don't mess it up or start charging more. Trailforks is the best and the fee amount was fine, especially with the lifetime discount if you signed up in the first months. MTB Project is garbage as far as I'm concerned but this could be a good opportunity for them to make it better and gain more support?

Outside magazine blows.
Outside used to be pretty legit. Then its popularity exploded after the '96 Everest thing, and they decided to target image over substance.

The Outside article that for me summed up what the magazine had become was a review of parkas. Each parka was shown being worn by model looking Mofos over suit and ties. It was especially hilarious in the case of Patagucci when you know their motto is "Dedicated to the core."
