Print is the core of our business. It is our greatest passion.
Why should you support out print titles?
Because they are beautiful publications made with care that record moments in mountain biking history. They’ll inform, entertain and inspire you. We make them for fans, riders, industry and ourselves.
When Misspent Summers began, it was Hurly Burly, the downhill yearbook, that kickstarted the business. We made it because there was no permanent record of the downhill World Cup series — how is anyone going to remember what happened each year when it’s all consigned to fleeting social media posts and internet articles?
Print, contrary to most modern thinking, is permanent. The medium is here to stay; so too the books you put on your coffee table.
If you want to help us record the history of the sport, get yourself one of our books or some other merchandise.
