Just got my copy of Triathlon Plus...
So.... the letter says my subscription will continue if I don't let them know by 29th November (good job I'm not on a two week holiday). But in the mean time "here is your free copy of Triathlon Plus - your new subscription will start with the December issue".
Oh. It's the December issue you sent me.
And to add insult to injury, there is an ad inside the magazine which says if you subscribe, you get a free cycle jacket worth £50. Yet if you are forced into it, you'll be lucky to get a magazine worth four quid!!
Ranty ranty moan moan. I've been a subscriber the whole time Triathlete's World has existed and I am a bit peeved.
Me too Especially as I think my hubby has bought me a new subscription for Christmas!
It was always going to fail. They copied the RW format which is weak and only works because it has been going for years and applied it to a cutting edge sharp sport.
Trathlete Europe was ok last time I read it. Is it still going ?
I unsubscribed from TE a few months ago Alex. It went off the boil too IMO.
Does that mean we go back to RW website?
Oddly enough I looked for a subscription offer the other day and couldn't find one - obvious now. Ended up going for 5 for £5 for Triathlon220. Have set reminder to cancel subscription just before it costs me real money. But then again if I enjoy it I might not.
Trouble with all these things is there is only enough you can say about them. Its not like buying PC World where there is ever changing technology always gives them something to write about.
Until we grow an extra leg or whatever there may be nothing to keep writing about in RW / TW other than the same old.

Sorry, that just made me piss myself laughing
The infrequent times I look for a tri mag (usually to read on a flight), ive always found TW half as thick as 220 so plumped for the latter.Either that or a Razzle
Has the title tanked? That's a pity - because the recent editions of TW have been good and I thought they were a big improvement.
+1 for the repetition thing.... i happily read last year's, which (surprise surprise) have largely the same content as this year's.

No it's just Chrone on here popsider.
It will pay to keep an eye on Hearst over the next few months; a board reshuffle done with an unsentimentality that Michael Corleone would have been proud of, the dropping of a formerly big brand, the axing of a number of brand extensions – all imply some even more brutal changes to come.
-- And just in case anyone is bored, why it's Hearst now and not Natmags Linky
