Great for normal people

Finally, a magazine where I don't have to wade through reviews of $4,000 bicycles or how to reduce my time trial times! The ads in this magazine are for items I actually have or would like to try. The stories are relevant to somebody like me who is a loyal bike rider, but not into racing or going out for a century every Saturday morning.
Down to earth mag for the everyday cyclist.

Instead of focusing on racing and all the new tech and fitness stuff, this mag celebrates everyday cyclists - normal people who commute, run errands, vacation, or just enjoy the freedom of cruising around on a bike. Lots of good DIY tips, although the content has definately gotten more marketing influence lately as the commuter/lifestyle industry has taken off and the 'zine gained larger distribution.
Great bicycling magazine for the non-racer

Bicycle Times is a great magazine for those of us who are using our bikes for ordinary things or as a touring vehicle. It has articles that I could relate to as a hobby rider. I will not be racing anyone, nor climbing mountains, but it gets me around town and around the county, and maybe will take me touring one day - and I like to read about others doing similar things. It offered practical advice for the commuter as well as articles on items I might not have otherwise known existed. Not all of us need to compare a Trek Madone with a Specialized Shiv - we just want to know which bikes will be strong enough to survive the potholes, light enough to pedal efficiently, and structured to allow for fenders and panniers on occasion. Bicycle Times appears to be targeted at riders like me!
best commuter magazine is here

Granted i was very surprised at the content of the magazine when I first layed eyes upon it. I thought oh god not another dirt bike mag(nothing wrong with dirt rag) praising those $3,000 mountain bikes that very few real people can afford, not so with bicycle times. The magazine is pure genius and geared to the everyday riders who will take an old mountain bike and set it up for real life commuting with a few new parts and a whole lotta heart and soul. I do like also to read about the new fixed gear riders and equipment, even tho I will never understand or ride them. You see I am of the old school riders I need brakes and gears and am allways amazed at the riders who handle those fixed gear bikes and the nad skills they have. Anyway, keep up the good work on the magazine and whos ever idea this was deserves a raise or at least a quad venti white chocolate mocha. ride on. mike lewis

I love it. finally a magazine for the rest of us who love to ride but not the normal type of bikes, hy-brids, fix gear. I mean the wealth of articles and other information is fantastic although I can never get the urge to ride a fixed gear bike I'll stick to my hybird which works just fine for my 50yr old butt as I still ride the 12 miles to work in the warmer weather. It would be cool if you could put some info or story on recumbents, or is that allready taken care of? the reason being I plan on building one out of recyled bike parts soon.In the mean time keep up the good work people and I am suscribing. mike
