Material, Tips, how-to's, ride reports and anything that you guys thing that could be benefit of the mag. Im not publishing what i want to see. I want to publish what you want to read.

I will be scouting all the time. Also if anybody know of events worth featuring, im just a pm away. I still need to contact the 4x4com.co.za.

Just a though....

Why don't you chat to whoever does the Wilddogs online shop and have a option to buy or subscribe to the mag online... do the same with 4x4com.co.za. even make it R15 if you buy online and R5 goes to the WD's or 4x4com?

When will the first issue be availble?

Hi,

I'd like a copy please...will gladly pay for first couple of months incl postage.

Since recently getting into biking, I've been looking at what is available in the magazine space...I love magazines.

TopBike was the best by far.

2 Wheels is okay, no D/S content really though. I enjoy the journalistic style (use of slang, funny captions etc.), but this does not work for bike reviews, as I want to see more technical info in such articles. e.g read the g450x review in recent 2 wheels compared with review of same bike in TopBike.

BikeSA is recommended for latrine use only.

I reckon if you look at the magazines that sell well...car, getaway and leisure wheels for example, and take the best out of those and apply to Adventure biking e.g. Car's first looks followed by road tests and Getaway's stories and photographs. Leisure wheels has nice reports on trails combined with good photography.

Best of luck...I really think there is a demand for such a publication!

Cheers
