mtbr in National Geographic Adventurer
Little birdie told me yesterday we're in there... but I haven't seen it.
Anybody seen it? What does it say and can someone post a scan?
I've seen it. It was in there "Best of 2004" issues. Summary off the top of my head:
They said the reviews were a bit amateurish (something like that anyway) but the real gem was the local ride guide section. It was a pretty short write up. I kind of agree, not on the review part but the local ride guide. It's the first place I stop when going to an unfimilar place to find trails.
What do you expect from a bunch of amateurs? I think it's a true statement. You let the general public review things and there will be poorly written evaluations. There will also be superbly written assesments of the equipment. Also, amateurs do not have the benefit of having tried various brands and styles of the equipment, therefore, they may not have experienced anything better than a Huffy. On the other hand, the reviews done by professionals in the the mags are often tainted with advertising money. Lesson to be learned, sift through the garbage in magazines and on-line reviews to find the gems of knowledge.

I don't have my scanner hooked up right now but here's the text:
Taken from Nat. Geo. Adventure Dec. 2004/Jan. 2005 "Best of Adventure 2005" p57
"MOUNTAIN BIKING GOLD
MTBReview.com (www.mtbr.com) serves up the best collection of trail beta under the sun, with 7,000-plus locations reviewed by MTBR readers. Yes, it's one of six bazillion consumer-review sites, and yes, the bike review section is ametuerish. But the database is a gold mine of local knowledge and the best way to find new places to ride in the U.S."
if by some chance you want the copy of the issue I have PM me an addy.
"approach to life: embrace it, don't care who's watching and never be satisfied."
Brian, your camera is a scanner too.

mtbr.com gets some national press.
Very small 1" x 2" blurb, but cool nonetheless. Para bens

I'll have to go out and buy a comment. It's a shame Passion and the other forums didn't get mentioned - I think they are better then any other MTB forum out there, with the great community and gatherings etc.
