    Sorry to see it go amid the problems with print journalism. "Bike" may not be far behind with a circulation (reported last issue) of 13K.

    Well, Bike went and cut their run back from 11 issues a year to 6 without telling anyone. Now I've heard it will be 4. I had paid a couple years ahead on my subscription so that this point it will be good for a decade, assuming they deliver the correct number of issues to me.

    Bike is transitioning well into is online platforms though...

    The Bible of bike videos have 30k viewers or more....... In many instances..

    Wouldn't be surprised to see them go strictly digital..

    I will buy three subscriptions to BIKE immediately. Kristin Butcher's writing alone is worth it. :thumbsup:

    I enjoy Bike too even though it's only four times a year now. Seemed like they were doing OK based on the number of advertisements, but there must be some lower limit for circulation numbers.

    Print is dying?

    I can see a coffee table book...The Best of IMTBTrails.

    That about fifteen people would buy.

    If it has a few B/W pages for my kids to color, I’ll buy two.

    This is from a current NY Times article. Interesting that editors had just one job and couldn’t pull it off.
