Coming up in Issue 44!

A first preview of the contents of the upcoming issue of Velo Vision...

Posted by Peter Eland on Friday 30 Nov 2012

Update 30th November: it's at the printers! There's been one last minute change to the contents - the Panamericana review replaces the Noomad write-up, which will now appear in next issue after further testing...


Apologies for another rather large gap since last issue - but the next Velo Vision is now coming together, and it should be off to print in the coming few weeks...

Contents are as ever still subject to change until the very last minute, but here's a first look at what's coming up in what's looking like another packed issue:

Is that John Bradshaw?

Looking forward to the Xootr Swift review. I bought one in the UK six years ago and it's the best bike I have owned.

New Hase brochure has features people commuting on the Hase Klimax trikes (2k and 5k versions) .

The copy they've written is excellent.... lots of thought have gone into their take on electric assisted human powered vehicles.

In comparison they state how much energy is used to produce and propel an electric car...

Have you still got the demo?

had alook at the Xootr Swift and it costs

Is that modest?

My Xootr cost me £499 six years ago. It has certainly gone up over recent years but the spec and ride is excellent.
