Bike Magazine (UK) used AT buyers' guide

There's a second hand AT buying guide in this month's new edition of UK 'Bike' magazine.
The AT still gets a 10/10 rating.

To be honest though, the guide doesn't contain any info that isn't already available on this forum so
unless you get the magazine anyway I wouldn't dash out to buy it.
Drum Dog and Derm like this.

I'm not sure how this stands with copyright issues but here goes anyway.
I hope it's legible

That was helpful and interesting and I reckon it does breach copyright so be careful. (I am not qualified to give legal opinions)

It falls under "fair use" as this is a US based forum.


In its most general sense, a fair use is any copying of copyrighted material done for a limited and “transformative” purpose, such as to comment upon, criticize, or parody a copyrighted work. Such uses can be done without permission from the copyright owner.

And to be honest, the entire article could have been written by someone sat in front of a computer viewing this forum as a guest.

I don't know about breaching copyright but I think that the 'author' of the article should be held up for plagiarism. As someone has already pointed out, all of the information could, and probably was, sourced from this forum.

I went to the motor show in the UK some years ago and ended up in the press club bar where guess what, the assembled motoring hacks were all on the slash and by the state of them, had been all day. I did note however that they were all armed with bags full of manufacturers glossy brochures so it wasn't hard to figure out where their supposedly unbiased, informative, new car reviews were coming from!!

Whilst I realise that the magazine is UK based I will point out that the reference to owners with corroded spokes getting replacement rims with stainless spokes as the final solution doesn't apply universally.

Owners in the UK might be fortunate enough to finally be getting a permanent fix, we're not being so well looked after in Oz. I had replacement spokes fitted 2 weeks ago and tbh, they don't appear to be any better than the originals, the surface of some spokes already feel rough to the touch.
