The Winter 2011 issue of Bicycle Quarterly is at the printer and will be mailed next week. Our full report from the Oregon Manifest (pictured on the cover) showcases the innovative and inspiring bicycles that excelled in the technical trials. We also take you on an epic ride across the Pyrenees mountains of southern France, to fuel your imagination over the winter months.
We discuss frame geometry and how it affects the fit and handling of your bike. And of course, we test bikes and equipment and bring you book reviews.
My personal favorite in Bicycle Quarterly is the “My Favorite Bike” column, where readers present a bike that is special to them. In the Winter issue, Wolfgang Habermeyer from Munich reports how he visited a bicycle chain store, found this wonderful 1970s Bertin in the basement among the unloved trade-ins, and bought it for a song. I wish we could all be that lucky!
