After the events of late, will you still buy their magazine.

    After what has happened and after seeing the doctor because of the snow blindness I got from the forum, will I still buy the magazine.

    I don't like what they have done but has it made me upset enough to stop buying the magazine, im not sure as I have always liked the magazine.

    The only other cycle magazines that I enjoy are Singletrack and Cycle by the CTC. So what could replace Cycling Plus.....mmmmm. Maybe I could have a look at velovision. But do I really want to finish with the mag??

    I will. It's still a decent read. Oh, and I recently signed back up to get tha rather nice pair of Rudy Project shades.

    I've nothing against C+. There's nothing vindictive in their actions, and some will be happy with it. I'm just way more at home somewhere like this than the vastness of BR.

    Definitely. The magazine is a good read and just because their new forums are far too expansive and it is almost impossible to keep on top of keeping up to date as a result is no reason to stop reading the magazine.

    Only get it occasionally as I get the CTC mag and that seems to cover the stuff I`m mostly interested in. I wouldn`t stop it just because of BikeRadar - it would be a bit like cutting my nose off to spite my face.
     
  5. I would keep buying it if I bought it in the first place. As it is, I just "borrow" my girlfriend's dad's copy occasionally.
    I thought it was a better mag in the days when Dan Joyce used to edit it so now I tend to read Cycle rather than C+.

    I buy it once in a while, and I'll still peruse it when I feel like it. I'd say that I'm less likely to do so now though.

    I'll carry on reading the mag. I just wish they'd put in fewer pictures of that bloke with the big chin. I'm sure he's a pleasant bloke and all that but I'm just sick of the sight of his face.

    I'll still buy the mag. I don't buy it every month and buy it when there's something in it that interests me. I usually buy 7 or 8 issues a year. The forum is seperate. If the quality of the mag went down or there was never anything that interested me then I'd stop buying it.

    Looks like pretty much everyone's position is, well, as it was!!

    As it is for me. I've only got a hybrid and a MTB - neither remotely fancy-pants, so my position of "never having bought a copy" is likely to continue too!!! :blush:

    I like the C+ mag and will continue with my subscription.

    Let's face it, Future is under no obligation to provide us with a forum are they? Yet we all get some benefit. So whilst we are miffed, we should put it in context.

    From my perspective the forum and the mag are seperate entities, I don't link my enjoyment of one with the enjoyment of the other.

    If I'm in the UK I buy it and if someone is coming out they usually get a copy for me. That will continue as I do enjoy the content and I think most, if not all, of the of the contributers are good and genuine cyclists!!

    I let my sub to the mag lapse about a year ago, but I still make the odd impulse purchase. I will continue with that.
