    Hi Dan, sorry I missed this. No, not reviewed; just a cover star. We do have a BMC AlpenChallenge AC02 coming up in April, I believe.

  • Dan

    The rider on the cover is on a BMC Street Fire SSX01. Have you reviewed this bike in any back issues?

  • Terry D

    Ah, so she got the job then.. and she does race too so probably a fair assessment.. Not that you’d catch me in anything but bibs!

    I may be wrong, Terry, but if that was originally in the May issue, that must mean Claire would have been writing that in February or something. I don’t think she was working for them, then. It’s not been long. Anyhoo, we love bike shop people’s opinions on kit as a general rule. They tend to be the harshest critics of anything that’s a bit dodgy. If we make a terrible recommendation, we can hide in our tower in Croydon. If someone in a bike shop takes your money, the good ones tend to feel pretty embarrassed when you take it back and glare at ’em.

    I loved Claire Beaumont of Condor Cycles & Rapha-Condors great review of Condor Shorts, 8/10 and I am sure there was no conflict of interest at all 😀
