Autumn 2011 Bicycle Quarterly

The Autumn issue of Bicycle Quarterly is at the printer. It will be mailed next week. On 72 pages, we cover a variety of topics, including:

  • High-wheeler racing in New Zealand today.
  • Test of the Calfee “Adventure” – a carbon fiber bicycle for the real world.
  • Braking: We test how it’s done best, and compare a few interesting brakes (Sram Force, Eebrake, Velo-Orange Gran Cru).
  • Many remember George Retseck’s illustrations from old Bridgestone catalogues. We talk to the man and show some rarely seen artwork.
  • A daytrip across the Yorkshire Dales immerses you into the landscape, culture and history of this beautiful region.
  • Our editor’s ultimate custom bicycle. How he designed it, and how it was built.

About Jan Heine, Editor, Bicycle Quarterly

I love cycling and bicycles, especially those that take us off the beaten path. I edit Bicycle Quarterly magazine, and occasionally write for other publications. One of our companies, Bicycle Quarterly Press publishes cycling books, while Compass Bicycles Ltd. makes and distributes high-quality bicycle components for real-world riders.

    I was wondering, what’s a Calfee Adventure – and found this:
    http://www.calfeedesign.com/carbon-fiber/model-calfee-adventure/ which includes an excerpt from the BQ review.

    Oo boy, I look forward to see your new bike, Jan!

  3. “High Wheeler Racing Today” — hilarious, like something from The Onion.
    Eagerly looking forward to receiving my copy soon; there is no better bicycling magazine.
