Dec. 27, 2006 – January 1st, 2007 is the official launch date of
. Former editor of a very popular bicycle commuter website along with its writers decided to take their skills from the streets onto the single track.
MtnBikeRiders.com is a site where mountain bikers can get a daily dose of news, articles, product reviews as well as technical tutorials on basic mountain bike maintenance.
What makes MtnBikeRiders.com different from all the other mountain biking sites out there? “It’s pretty simple; we’re mountain bikers just like the rest of you out there. We’re not pro, we drink beer and we love to ride.” Says co-founder RL Policar.
MtnBikeRiders.com hopes to attract big name companies that are brave enough to have them review their products, for free! That’s right; MtnBikeRiders.com doesn’t charge to test products. In fact, when the site tests any product, they will post the company logo on the Partner’s Page as well as a link in the Links Directory.
So far the site has lined up names like Ibex Bikes, Fezzari Bikes, Tifosi Optics, Hoss Mtb, KHS Bicycles, Raleigh, Diamondback and many others to have the site staff test their products. “We’re pretty confident that our rigorous testing procedures will show readers the product’s capabilities and integrity.” Says Policar.
The site will also feature contests through out the month of January. Contest swag will vary from eyewear from Tifoisi Optics, energy bars from Bumble Bar and other mountain bike related items.
