Bike Tests

Bicycle Quarterly’s tests go far beyond those of other magazines. We ride every bike for several weeks over at least 300 km (185 miles), really getting used to the bike as an owner would. Additionally, a second tester rides the bike and reports his impressions.

Unlike most magazines, Bicycle Quarterly is financed by subscribers, not advertisers, so we can be honest in our evaluations. For every test bike, we tell you its good points and what could be improved, so you can decide for yourself whether it’s a bike for you.

We take many of our test bikes on true adventures, so our bike tests make a great read even if you are not in the market for a bike. Below are the bikes we’ve tested over the last 20+ years.
