In 2002 Jan Heine decided to follow his passion and start a low budget black and white zine about the culture, history and technology of cycling. 14 years on and Bicycle Quarterly has become a respected voice in the bicycle industry with an almost cult following. Reading a copy will help you appreciate and understand your bicycle even more, but most of all it will make you want to head out for a ride that pushes your boundaries.
In this issue:
The Spring Bicycle Quarterly is our 75th edition. We’ve put together a very special magazine for the occasion. We visit an amazing framebuilder in Japan and find out more about frame stiffness and performance. Karen Yung takes us on the backroads of Vermont. We look at the performance of knobby tires. Nicolas Joly re-evaluates what makes a good gravel bike. We test a randonneur bike from a promising young builder. And to reflect on these difficult times, we look at how cyclists in war-time Paris kept their spirits up despite the challenges they faced.
