VeloVision! ---the only magazine of all-bike culture!
December 05, 2005
[$12 postpaid. $2 off list price!] Folding Bikes Special Issue! I have new copies for sale of "VeloVision", #24, Dec. '06.
VV is the only general bike culture mag out, really. Sure, it's pricey, but that's due to postage from the UK. Besides: it's big, full color and chockful of bike culture from around the world.
It's heavy on content, light on ads---and the ads it does run are all from indy biz---ads you won't see elsewhere from companies that really do have something to offer you as an individual human bean.
VeloVision emphasizes transport, not sport. It's about citybikes, commuters, family solutions, workbikes---and recreation. Fun bikes. Innovation all the way. The bike world is a big one and VV is the mag covering the widest range. It's basically the only bike culture mag out there. Which is why I sell it. It's from the UK.
