Spoke was created in 2001 by Caleb Smith and Emma Gee as a response to the vast amount of generic mountain bike magazines available at the time. Spoke strives to bring a fresh and innovative look at mountain biking through original content, bold design and high quality production values. It provides an unbiased look at the lives and activities of mountain bikers in Aotearoa, consistently pushing the boundaries of mountain bike photography and graphic design. Spoke is published five times a year: February, April, June, September and December, and is available throughout New Zealand and online at our web store.
Spoke 54 is here. Same amount of pages, same great stories, same amazing photography. Same as it ever was.
It’s all abuzz this issue; we wonder whether Enduro is just what we’ve always done, we look at four sweet bikes to do it on, and we meet some of the best guys doing it.
Israel may be the unlikliest source of singletrack, but you’ll agree the ancients knew how to build it. Jamie Nicoll had a stellar breakout season on the Enduro circuit and we get an insight into what makes him hungry. The SRAM guys get to experience a mythical road trip down south, and we get to experience the highs of Colorado firsthand and come away breathless.
