Strengths:    Occasional interesting feature articles: example- Their story several years ago on the death of Marco Pantani. Also Mike Magnuson's Clydesdale articles, which were an inspiration to me.

Weaknesses:    They only seem to review high dollar racing bikes and have forgotten about those of us that ride just for fun and fitness.

Bottom Line:   
Bicycling used to be an interesting magazine but it is only aimed at racers and rich riders who can afford very expensive bikes now. I will admit I still read it from time to time but I wish they would do more articles for regular riders like me on a limited budget. They do get an interesting feature article once in a while, however.

Strengths:    Absolutely nothing! Oh yeah, and Style Man's a fake!

Weaknesses:    Not enough room here to list them all.

Bottom Line:   
Okay, after receiving my latest copy, I just couldn't help but write a review. This is the absolute worst bicycle magazine on the face of the earth. If I could get Team Performance to stop sending it to me for free,I would. I subscribed years ago but never renewed.

Bicycling is like the Cosmopolitan or The National Enquirer of bicycling. It's full of fluff and articles for no-nothings with short attention spans. I still give it the courtesy 5-minute thumb-through when it comes... I guess just to see if anyone there has a clue yet. Nope, just looked again... they don't. Don't waste your hard earned money on this trash.

Strengths:    It has lots of pictures of Bicycles. Its cheaper than the other bike mags.

Weaknesses:    I wish they would actually give a negative review of something.

Bottom Line:   
Gee, no updated review in a few years. Well, not much has changed. Either Bicycling only reviews great items or someones getting paid off.
Still, it does give me something to read while I'm sitting on....well, it gives me something to read.

Strengths:    You can pick up good tips to try out once in a while

Weaknesses:    Style man

Bottom Line:   
Although I still get excited when it comes each month, I guess it's from habit, they need to quit selling out to the advertisers. Although I only buy used bikes, I would like to see a buyers guide that just covered the vendors that paid to have the merchandise shown on the pages.

Getting the annual subscription is so cheap, it's still worth it.

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Buy this, buy that, blah, blah... The "I'm a moron with $4,000 to throw away" colum really makes me ill.

Bottom Line:   
I really no longer appreciate this magazine. To me, it's more like a stupid infomercial than a real cycling mag. They have been sending it to me for free and can't get them to stop. I usually thumb through it in the kitchen, then toss in the recycle bin. My two cents.

Bicycling Magazine

My god, it's like herpes. You can treat it, but it'll just rear its ugly head again in 6 months. So I just unsubscribed for the 3rd time in 2 years... which is interesting because I've had a USAC license for about 2 years. Has anyone else had the same experience? US Masters Swimming does the s ... Read More »

General fitness magazine recommendation - needed

I haven't had a magazine subscription in a decade. But, I'm thinking about getting some kind of fitness magazine - covering general fitness, e.g. abs, weight-lifting, nutrition, etc. But, it seems that magazines make some assumptions about men when it comes to fitness... - We don't know there are o ...
