"Whilst I am fit, and reasonably adept, I am not brave. I am full of fear. This is not my usual territory, I am out of my depth." The words in Privateer Magazine are wrought from experience. And who hasn't experienced sensations just like these? If you're a mountain biker, you have. The love of dirt, adrenaline, new trails, and scenic views takes us to places we'd not normally go. And it's these places that reward us, challenge us, and sometimes scare the daylights out of us.
More than any rag we've ever read, Privateer Magazine strives to bring you to these places. It's the fat-tired cousin of Rouleur Magazine. Every issue contains scintillating photography that covers all aspects of our wonderful sport. You can almost smell the rank odor of old tire sealant and feel the dust between your teeth. But images alone can't always convey the depth of the mountain bike experience. This is where the storytellers bridge the gap for us.
From competition to pure recreation, old technology to new, Privateer doesn't discriminate. If it rolls in the dirt, you'll find it here. Privateer Magazine is available six times per year. Each issue is roughly 130-140 pages.
