    Are there any mtb magazines out there that have reliable reviews of equipment?

    I.E. they don't provide only glowing reviews of their advertisers...

    Any of the magazines considered more authoritative than others?

    Thanks!

    IMO, Dirt Rag's the best. Many of the reviews that they publish are done by non staff members and are unbiased for the most part.

    Not a mag but, also check out Mtbr. Take what you read there with a grain of salt since anyone can post there.

    there is a really good forum that I found recently that seems to have some knowledgeable (or at least opinionated) posters. It's called Two Spoke.

    Any magazine will be biased in some way, shape or form. Its just the way things are. Just dont form your opinion from something you read ONE time. Do a little more research and as always ask the guys here on Two Spoke.

    When your funded or want to be funded by the companies your reviewing it makes it tough to write negative.

    Nope, but they have a website. Looks like a DH rag like Decline.
