From 2009, the publisher raises its annual output from six to eight

Singletrack to publish eight issues per year

Despite having recently been thrown into turmoil by website hackers, the Singletrack crew has announced upbeat plans to publish eight issues in 2009, up from six as previously.

An edition will now land approximately every six weeks.

The move is designed to increase the value of a subscription. The publisher’s website states: "We realise that times are tight and people might be cutting back on how many bike mags they’re buying. We want to be the bike mag that you’re still buying so we’ve come up with a new ‘credit crunch’-busting special offer for our subscriptions."
