    Best Magazine for Mountain Biking

    I'm looking to get a subscription to a MTB magazine. What do you recommend? I'm into all mountain.

    I like to pick up Freehub or Decline if I'm on a trip and need a rag. I think most of the others are like 10 pages of content and 150 pages of ads

    IMO, the best one out there right now (and in a long time!)

    You can get Decline for free if you download it digitally. I have it in my newsstand on my iPad.

    That being said, I like Dirt Rag.

    Just don't get MBA. I like Freehub and Dirt Rag a lot. Mountain Biking UK is phenomenal but a subscription is like 110 bucks.

    Bike and Dirt Rag for me for the excellent writing. MBA for when I'm shopping.

    It can be hard to find in the US - and is also very expensive, but the British magazine "What Mountain Bike" is by far the best I have read. Both the writing and the photography are superb.

    Fortunately, an electronic subscription via Apple's Newsstand App is much less expensive.

    I think IMB | Free Mountain Bike Magazine Online is one of the best free electronic ones. Has a lot of good riding tips with embedded videos.
