"Privateer magazine is for mountain bikers who already know the obvious; for riders who have paid their dues in sweat and dust and broken bone, and are irrevocably hooked..."

The first time we heard about Privateer we were excited, a mag produced for dyed in the wool advocates of all things two wheeled. It doesn't have to be about the latest height adjustable seatpost or the newest section of trail at a bike park halfway around the World, it's more about the scene as it appears to the diehards. The first edition immediately took the same status as its sister mag, the elusive and ever collectable Rouleur. Photography, words, even the advertising is oriented towards a certain sort of rider who doesn't want to be told what to buy, how to ride or what the latest bike fad is. Their message; "to remind readers why they continue to love it".

Privateer is having an official launch party next week, but before that we've already had issue two hit the doormat. A stunning conglomerate of witty contributors, some famous, some not. Most importantly for Orange Bikes, perhaps the most thorough article we've ever had written on our humble company. An in depth insight into the workings of the Orange Bikes factory, a look at the company as it started, and the people who continue to keep it at the forefront of the riding scene. We're proud to be in there with both our article, and an advert we put real thought into putting together. It's great to see something like this in print, it brings the company to life and reminds us how we appear to the industry at large. Small, eccentric, but brimming with passion and enthusiasm. Privateer for us mimics much of that same sentiment, so we got together to offer your first issue free, without risk...

Got the mag already? Keep an eye on our news pages for a 'making of' story on the process of bringing an advert to life. It might not be what you'd expect from a bike company, but it's what we're all about, doing it together...
