RIDE #61 bike test preview: Trek

20 August 2013 – 

Production on the 61st edition of RIDE Cycling Review in 2013 is almost complete. In the next week printing will begin on a 240 page issue. The release date is expected to be in the first week of September. As much as we’d like it out now, there is still work to be done. As we put the finishing touches to the issue, however, we shall be sharing a few little glimpses of things that you’ll find inside RIDE #61.

The magazine will feature six bike tests. Here are five details of a particularly lovely bike, the first on test in RIDE #61. A Trek Madone. The test itself does boast 24 photos in total and each review bike is subjected to the full protocol process. As well as the three page review, we bring you the ‘Build Report’, the ‘Round Table Discussion’, the full spec, and flex-test data on bike and wheels. You’ll find the weights of each component and a breakdown of where the weight is.


Here’s what the publisher, Rob Arnold had to say on the day of the Round Table Discussion…

We’ll keep you up to date on the progress of printing and distribution on our Facebook page. This is another big issue with great bikes on test and features on racing from around the world, insight from inside the peloton and a reminder of the good things of cycling. The working title for this issue is: “a good one”. That’s what this issue is shaping up to be. I look forward to delivering it to you soon. – Rob
