Boneshaker Magazine – Issue 19
It’s the wind in your hair; two brave wheels and the horizon. It’s a perfect-bound publication with a strong design aesthetic and contributors from all over the world. We’ve celebrated the chrome-shining custom rides of the Sudan, investigated rebel bicycle gangs in LA, hit the dirt roads of New Mexico. Bespoke framebuilders, bike polo champions and bold activists have told us their tales. We’re for road cyclists, downhillers, fixie freaks, couriers, commuters, tourers, BMX bandits and everyone in between.
There's magic in these pages. Mysterious carvings in ancient chalk hills, the alchemy of the frame-builder's fire, wild boys and wild girls slipping down forgotten paths and surrendering to the mystic moon. Inner demons are wrestled and exorcised as the pedals spin on. Our writers take on the Tour Divide, pitch primitive tents in Normandy, chase heroic racers through Sri Lanka's shimmering heat. We celebrate the cargo bike, the muddy bike, the radiator bike – and the next generation of riders marking magic miles of their own.
Welcome to issue 19: another beautiful 100-pager, with gold foil-blocking illuminating the cover, which has been illustrated by Ellen Schofield.
As ever, this issue was carefully printed in Bristol with vegetable inks on thick, uncoated Challenger offset paper, perfect binding, and with a foil-blocked cover printing, this time in gloss gold. It even smells good.
