Bicycle Quarterly

Few monthes ago I had the chance to grab an issue of  Bicycle Quarterly. This magazine is edited by Jan Heine, altready known as the writer of some of the major books dedicated to competition or touring bicycles, and for his job about the René Herse rebirth.

I purchased the ’12 spring issue, mainly because the “tall and short riders” report interested me. There were also some lines about the history of the Nivex derailleur, the Bilenky cargo bike and some interesting stories on fascinating cycling trips. The products tested are really ridden for thousand of miles and this is clearly a good and independant job made by Jan and his associate. The investigation job on historic articles is particularly great. Unfortunately you can only buy them here and I think there is no other channel for distribution.

As a graphic designer, I’m touched by the simple but delicate layout, the black and white printing remind me of some old magazine like Le Cycliste.
