Tour Magazine (Germany) tested 8 frames for their Feb 2013 issue. Here is a little video for those who speak German (I don't) - so it is not much use to me.

http://tv.tour-magazin.de/video/Windkan ... 5af0b64f02

What would be useful to me is to get their article (in English) or a summary (in English too). I would be willing to pay for the magazine...but can't find out how to do so.

The bikes tested are not the biggest but appear to be some of the newest "aero" frames. (with the exception of the Giant - which I guess was not yet released.)

BH G6 8.5
BMC Time Machine TMR01
KUOTA Kuraro
NEIL PRYDE Alize
ROSE Xeon 8800 CW team
SIMPLON Nexio Red
STORCK Aernario Platinum Edition
Trek Madone 7.9 Project One

Any info out there?

you would have thought they would just publish it in English , most Germans speak English & think of all the Scandinavian countries which are de facto English speakers.
or better still publish in German with a paragraph precis in English on every page.

Nobody else does in-depth tests like TOUR does. I'm obviously not entirely objective, but one of the things I like is that if a bike or a component sucks, TOUR QTR says so - it's not another of those "everything is great" mags. So perhaps I've whetted somebody's curiosity.

BTW, all input about TOUR Quarterly, positive and negative, is welcome!



I'd love to give you guys my money every year but I don't and will not own an iPad. I own a laptop. I own an iPod Touch. I own a Kindle. Please help us give you money by making it available on other platforms!

Great news, apparently Tour Qtr is back!

That is excellent news!!

But I can't see it either.

I'd also prefer an Android version. Android now supports magazines in the Play store - it would be very convenient to be able to get it there.

Hooray it's back!

It is on the Apple App store but you have to search for "Tour Quarterly". Nothing else will find it!

(or go the website and click the link to the app store from there, I guess?)

Just read the latest issue (which is now available inside the app).

So apparently those Mavic Wheel/Tire systems really work.

What a great magazine this is.

Can this be read on a standard Apple (MacBook) computer or, only the iPad?
