"Urban Velo" #15: Bike Revivers in Chicago & Philly ...& More (Sample)
September 29, 2009
[$5, postpaid US. One sample copy available.]
What a great naked riders cover on this Sept 2009 issue! 'Course they're not really naked. Just summer-style naked. I also dig the tennies and glasses-down-on-the-nose on the fixie rider in the lead!
I'm going to use the Sidewall Tear Repair idea described in this issue to fix a sweet blue race tire with a tear that I couldn't throw out. Glad I didn't!
"UV" is a compact, square-format 86-pg urban bike culture mag, making it stand out among mags. (It's full color and has a classy square-back perfect binding.) They also give away each issue as an e-mag at their website (and blog) at urbanvelo.org.
