The wheel has come off Privateer magazine, the mountain-biking brother to Rouleur, with the announcement that issue 18 will be the last.

Privateer had a hefty – nine English poonds! – cover price, hoping that the market would pay top dollar for high-end production, a non-standard format and limited adverts (see “The Golden Age of Magazines” passim).

It wouldn’t.
