Pinkbike Magazine Launches - 1st Issue June 2011

Mar 31, 2011 at 17:28
by Julian Coffey  

Pinkbike.com announced today the launch of its large-format print publication Pinkbike Magazine.

Pinkbike, a grassroots based website that exploded into a mountain bike powerhouse on the heels of the freeride revolution, will launch a monthly print magazine that will hit newsstands June 2011. Pinkbike Magazine, a glossy, large-format publication will deliver the spectacular imagery, insightful technical analysis and on-location reporting that made Pinkbike.com the world’s preeminent source of information and media for the sport’s most influential riders.

“Pinkbike Magazine speaks to a new generation of riders who, like it or not, have been the creative, driving force of mountain biking for over a decade,” says Pinkbike Publisher Julian Coffey. “These people have been largely ignored by existing print media, and our new mag will be a big wake-up call.”

“We blew up with new-school riders, and now we’re a fiercely-interactive community,” says Karl Burkat. “Pinkbike Magazine is a showcase for athletes who push the envelope in all categories, and a portal through which the cycling world will experience mountain biking at its highest level.”




Brandon Semenuk: "Stoked to kick off the first official PB mag with one of my favorite shots I got in 2010. Excited for the new mag and to produce more like this in 2011"

Pinkbike Magazine will deliver an unparalleled visual experience. Directed by Photo Editor Ian Hylands and renowned location photographer Sterling Lorence, readers will feast on large-format images, vividly reproduced on high-quality glossy pages. Visit a location photographed on Pinkbike Magazine’s pages, and you’ll feel as if you’ve already been there.




“Pinkbike has an immense image library with over 6 million photos." says Photo Editor Ian Hylands. "So each image we choose for Pinkbike magazine represents the best of the best. To reproduce them in a standard-format magazine would be a disservice to the artist - and our readers."


Sterling Lorence added: “I of course love seeing my photos in print. I’m stoked anytime someone is willing to put ink to paper – it puts a big smile on my face!”

Pinkbike Magazine assures that its tech editorial will not be affected by advertising - all technical articles will be spearheaded by Tech editor Mike Levy. Levy weighs in: “We test every product and report the results as if we were speaking with trusted friends—because we are.”




Pinkbike Magazine will be available in 12 languages and distributed globally – a model that will keep costs reasonable and circulation numbers high.

 It's April 1st in other countries... there are different timezones outside of the US.

 Ya but PB is based in the Pacific Time Zone...whatever, I think that you should be able to do April Fool's early because, hey, it's April Fool's! "Hey, it's only the 31st!" "I know, April Fool's" lol

 If this is an April fools joke, then they are commiting credit card fraud because it lets you pay and check out with a credit card lol.

 April fools joke or not, might be half truth. Chainslayer was once an april fools prank and it later came to be an actual web site.

 Well, Julian Coffey, the guy that wrote this article, is also the same guy that suggested that all of Pinkbike throw down $20 to buy back *raceface*. So, to the people who are throwing down $20 hoping to get a mag, maybe your really buying back Raceface. Haha. Pinkbike has a strange sense of humor.
  • + 3
 It was March 31st for people in North America when it came across the news feed DanB25. And that $300 rigid shock for your DH bike would be the lamest April fools in history, not this.

 I'm subscribing for sure...tired of taking my laptop in the shitter!

 And it doesn't matter if you accidentally drop the iPad.

 Just subscribe to dirt magazine.

 firstly, it's just an oversized ipod touch, second they named it after maxi pads, which i hope you know what is used for, third why the fuck can't i make a video call on it since it has such a big screen that would be it's biggest advantage

 it is just a big ipod Razz i somehow dont think they named it after maxi pads haha, and the video call things a fair point but the ipad2 can do that

 if you will use only googel translator - i tell you DON'T DO IT! the translation is really bad and you wont do the ppl a favor. keep it simple and english. everybody who is visiting pb online has to read it in english too.
  • + 10
 I was actually been wondering exactly what kind of trick PB would try to pull on us ... after a porn site and a sell-out and an upside down page.... a PB Magazine is not what I was expecting!!! Razz

It actually IS a good idea... I would subscribe actually... maybe a good add campaign right there!

props to the fool who came up with the idea to fool US!! :þ I love it

 FIX THE PRICE! what is canada some 3rd world country, as of today the candian dollar is 103.14 why a dollar more here? Joke same as anything in print.
  • + 4
 word. I'll buy it but I find it strange that the states still get it cheaper. Is it printed in Canada? If so, then giving the states a lower price is so ridiculous!!!

 today i exchanged 15 canadian dollars, that i had left over from my whistler trip last summer, back into US dollars. i got $14.08. there's your dollar difference

 You didnt get a 1:1 rate then... the current rate is 1 Canadian dollar = 1.02617 U.S. dollars.

 yeah, and the banks always get there greasy fingers in there too.
  • + 1
 Yes don't forget the fee for changing currency

 his post suggested that the US dollar was above ours, when the only reason he got less was the exchange fee.

 what's goin' here... I've been too busy orderin a Quicky Stiffy.

 If it's not a joke, the timing is so bad it's almost good. If it is a joke... how come you can actually add it to your cart and (I think) pay for it and all?
Hoping it's for real, cause I'd buy it.
If not, it's a pretty classy April Fools joke.

12 languages.... hahahahah globally distributed... no way!!!!... hahah impossível!!!!.... das geht wirklich nicht!!!

 With all the major news/media publications shifting their thier focus from the printed word to more "web based" services; it is refreshing to see Pinkbike going against the grain and not catering to the demands of the "general public". Wink
  • + 1
 Sick...can't wait to subscribe, but i still think pinkbike should save raceface, just my opinion. A company with a amazing website, and now a magazine........even better with awesome parts for sale.....why the hell not? And lets not forget.....made in canada

 Yeah Pink Face!
  • + 1
 Where is the subscription link/info? was it changed? Previously, it said $20 for a subscription, now you cannot subscribe?

Also, your crop marks in your InDesign template are wrong - there are no bleeds on your images/pages. I would not want to be the person operating the cutting machine when this gets printed Smile

 it past april fools know so is this real or april fools? come on pb spill the beans as they say,

il passé poisson d'avril sais, c'est donc ce imbéciles réel ou en avril? venir sur les haricots déversement pb comme on dit,

 Why would you want to read about the exact same stuff 2 months after you've already read about it on line? April Fools!
  • + 1
 Basically PB is like an online magazine, so I don't get why they would make a magazine too? just like the above said you would've read it ages before it came out in the magazine....would be STOKED for Pinkbike if they did make one though Big Grin

 But how about reading a magazine when u are at the bathroom? holy shit
  • + 6
 I take my laptop when i'm taking a dump anyway...
  • + 1
 Everyone is launching a digital version of their magazine nowaddays and you're going to print. Not sure the timing is good. It should have been done 3 years ago and you would have been launching an Ipad app today.
Nonetheless, there aren't too many good mag out there. To me, there is only MBA and BIKE. Decline &^%$#%^ SUCKS. so if it isn't an April fools joke, i'll think you'll do well. BUT how will it be different from your site?
ps: love that pic of Semenuk. good call on the cover
  • + 1
 I remember Pinkbike getting loads of people going about the 'RS Boxxer Big Foot' - a 1ft travel single crown fork. Hmmm. Amazing how convincing it can look with the upper stanchions taken off. Gotta give it to them, some great April fools have been done on here

 I'm looking forward to when they drop an AM radio station too!

 This is April fools, but besides the fact that if they made a mag Id subscribe a lot of people wouldn't pay for info they get for free on here. Not to mention mags and newspapers are a dying form of information.
  • + 1
 I thought april fool but the website lets you go all the way through the order process? (all the way upto card details which is where I left it.)
If its just bad timing for an advert chalk me up for ten issues.
  • + 0
 So if this real, and we do get a print mag, what happens to the content on the website. Does it get watered down. Look at the Decline site... unless you subscribe to their digital Issues, the site isn't really worth anything. It maybe that if the website and print content sources are the same, then the editors may not want to give it up to a free service. Videos obviously not withstanding. It's previously noted here that most of the news and major Magazines in the US are hurting and are cutting costs and making the switch to digital media. More people are getting their news online. I just think that this move is counterintuitive. BUT THAT BEING SAID, I would be totally stoked to subscribe to a Freeride/DH content, picture driven PB magazine. They have been the most socially driving key to the growth of the Freeride aspect of the sport in North America handsdown. (IMO) , but I'm not getting my hopes up until April 2nd.
  • + 1
 seriously? This is your april fools and yet you put it up way early?

If it's not a joke then it's sick.

April fools are supposed to be a joke, not something people actually want...

 Ik what magazine i am buying next!


I love how these comments turn into which country is better. What does it matter, I am a citizen of planet Earth. Salute
  • + 0
 If this isn't an April prank, Does that mean the content on the site is gonna be weaker. Decline's web magazine is all but useless unless you subscribe. Maybe PB would not want to waste too much pertinent info on a free service. Also ,as it has been mentioned earlier, almost all media is cutting their print losses and switching to digital format because of the high overhead. This just seems counterintuitive. I vote prank!!!! That being said, I would be stoked to have another freeride, pic driven MTB mag. I would almost cetainly subscribe. But I'm not getting my hopes up.
  • + 0
 In my opinion, this is dumb and totally backwards(IF THIS IS REAL). Why would Pinkbike launch a magazine issue when everything is assessable online?!?! Everything you viewers would read in this magazine would have already been published online a few months ago.
  • + 1
 This is why magazines are moving away from the big news; I read dirt mag and they only have a couple of headlines in there.

Whilst paper magazines can never compete with the internet with the speed of publication, this isn't necessarily all bad. Magazines are given the time they need so that they have the soul and quality of journalism that pinkbike and other sites have never quite been able to match. That's not to say that pinkbike doesn't have it's place too; it's unparralled for finding out the latest riding news, but I'd much rather actually sit down and read a mag. Plus it's pretty hard to read pinkbike on the toilet with a desktop...

 this is certainly not april fools. If it is pink bike will have their asses handed to them for fraud. So I've bought it

 its not gonna be fraud when you all get your money refunded tomorrow

 sorry bro but taking peoples CC details for a joke isnt legal, full stop. I like PinkBike and their articles are spot on, which is why I gave over my $20, but this is treading on VERY thin ice if its a joke.

 i sense april fools...............

 Me too, hope not though. For one thing, it's not the April yet in BC, and for another, they actually do have the right people on payroll to make a great magazine. If this is real I'm subscribing!
  • + 9
 Despite the fact its a blatant April Fools joke - This is actually a really good idea. I'd no longer need to sift through the copious amounts of shit people upload to the site and just enjoy the good stuff.

 taking april fools a bit far guys!
scamming us of $20 as well!

 Oh, good thinking!!!

 if this is even remotely true, they had better hire decent writers. the articles on here seem to be written by children.

 I was just thinking last week that mountain biking needs a good mgazine like Color is to skateboarding. Decline is good and all, but the format is blah and it always seems to be the same sort of thin every month.

 maybe they are scaming us out of our money to go into secret funds to buy race face
  • + 0
 or maybe they just wanted to see how stupid you were?

 probably the latter Wink

 I'm pretty sure that it's illegal to collect credit card info online to pull off a joke. If it was a joke the page where you input your info would probably say "APRIL FOOLS B*TCH!". I also now have a receipt from Pinkbike saying I paid the money, which I am also pretty confident could be used in a class action suit if they were just joking around. Joke's on the fools that don't subscribe and have to wait for the first issue to hit the shelves....
  • + 2
 or at the end of the day your surprised when you get a $20 refund on your card
  • + 11
 maybe the April fool is to fool the fools that think everyone is being fooled... or maybe not.

 we had that theory last year too Razz

 Dude's need to relax. If you're that hard up about the scratch, you shouldn't be throwing it around. Guess I bettre watch my spelling and grammer...don't want to get neg propped by the worldwide community, it might ruin my day of working 14 hours and supporting a family and enjoying the little time i have to do what i like.

 There you go mrpark you unadulterated idiot

"To add to the realism, we created a special form to take subscriptions. The form was non-functional and didn't actually record any information, so we don't know how many subscriptions were generated. No credit cards were charged, however many users from around the world emailed asking about more details, and why their order hadn't been processed! "

 haha mrpark, you never got an email confirming your purschase. i think leelau put it best you unadulterated idiot
