Within this, our 95th issue, you’ll find extensive coverage of the shows that fill the calendar as soon as the christmas break is over. We’ve articles on CoreBike, The Bike and Tri Show and The Bike Place.
The magazine begins with a soulful piece by BMX icon Taj Mihelich, now the owner of Fairdale bikes. Flick to page 11 to read his story on how salvaging a bike from a skip helped form the brand.
We’ve also interviews with Mark Broughton, the man who has taken the reigns at Cycling Sports Group UK (page 24), as well as a chat with Paligap managing director David Lane, (page 28) who has a few announcements to make.
Two retailers share their stories with us in this month’s edition, with Rutland Cycling’s MD David Middlemiss discussing the rise and rise of his business on page 26 and upstart Hoops Velo, another store for Gary Bird, profiled on page 57.
Those are just a selection of the articles we’ve squeezed in this month, but you’ll also find sections on the electric and outdoors markets tucked within, as well as stocking up guides discussing wheel and footwear products. Deeper into the magazine there are also interviews with ISM Saddles founder Steve Toll and Sean Deane of Optimum Sports.
