Cycling Magazines

Just bought Cycling Plus. Don't usually. Never seen a more shallow "cut and paste" pretending to be original copy. Out of 218 pages only 46 are not adverts or "road tests" that are never critical... "Infomercials" is the phrase I believe. So for £4.99 I get a advertisin...

Re: Russell Brand: Fool? or a Friend of democracy?

Brand is desperate for any type of recognition... I'm sure his management made it happen.... What school did he go to...and what's his real world working experience..... Since Milliband has none I wonder if he has..... What businesses has Brand run ...any...of course not.....military service ? ... P...

Re: So I am 'Special Needs' am I?!

Why does the phrase "inclusive" all ways become "exclusive " .
" I want to be included " . . So the first thing I must have is a section that excludes you !!!
Maybe I should demand a "LGBTS" section ......

Re: British Cycle maufacture . . . . What happened ?

People want super high tech at rock bottom prices so the rush to the bottom started. High tech carbon frames for £600 and sets of lights for £200 abound... Money does not seem to matter... but the profit margin does ... so companies want the "emperors new clothes" at the cheapest price ......
