Privateer 2 - 6
Five of the best of the best off-road publication you’ll
ever pick up, for a paltry £25. Prepare to be wooed.
Issue 2 sees Editor Tym Manley squeezing the essence out of Orange, Bex Hopkins seeking beautiful trails, the history of Titanium from Mike Davis and Joolze Dymond hanging out with World Champ José Hermida. And a thing called ‘SICK’…
Issue 3 celebrates a genuine one-off of UK bike design, Geoff Apps, the Polaris Challenge makes map reading hip, photographer Geoff Waugh convinces scarred riders to get their bits out for the lens, Jenn Hopkins tackles the supposedly unrideable Red Pike, and Mike Chick risks life and limb on Bolivia’s Death Road.
Issue 4 features the marvellous Tracy Moseley, the opinionated Thomas Frischknecht, Nick Larsen from Charge Bikes talking hype, Hope Technology getting the Manley treatment and some cheeky trails.
Issue 5 has Mike Hall and his 2,700 mile Great Divide story. I think that counts as epic. Then there’s New York, John Gibson (and his glorious images), a visit to Hayes in Milwaukee and the Collectors - proper bike loving.
Issue 6 sees visits to Sheffield, Germany, the Rockies, Chris Smith, bicycle geometry (part one) and the new kings of the downhill scene. And Geoff Waugh has some bike porn images to ride for.
All that and a whole lot more for £25. Lovely stuff.
