September 03, 2007
[$12 postpaid. $2 off list price!]
"VeloVision" is the only full-coverage magazine of indy bike culture out there today. OK, some nice ones come close, and VV doesn't cover racing, and no one is perfect, but VV is darn good!
Details: Condition: new, $10 retail; 64 pages; full color; oversize 9" x 11".
VeloVision emphasizes transport, not sport. It's about citybikes, commuters, family solutions, workbikes---and recreation. Fun bikes. Innovation all the way.
