Pag­i­na­tion and price!

Classic Motorcycle Mechanics - - FEEDBACK -

Have to say, I do love CMM ev­ery month, espe­cially the va­ri­ety of eras and bikes cov­ered, it’s ex­cel­lent, but I have to make a few com­ments about the amount of ad­verts in the mag and the cover price. £4.20 and about 35 or so ad­vert pages from a to­tal of 132… bit too much of both, surely? Can’t we have more fea­tures and news please and some new prod­ucts which seem like an af­ter-thought at the mo­ment. Dick Hem­mings

Ber­tie says: “Well, what I can say Dick is this: our price is com­pa­ra­ble with the op­po­si­tion and we nor­mally have more pages and more work­shop/ tech­ni­cal pages too. Now, the ad­verts help pay for the mag­a­zine’s pro­duc­tion – we lit­er­ally couldn’t do it with­out them and peo­ple like see­ing the ads for the var­i­ous ser­vices. We also give you FREE clas­si­fied ads for your bikes and parts. Fi­nally, I buy LOTS of magazines and can of­ten pay £4.30 for a mag with just 68 pages (a model-mak­ing mag­a­zine) or £4.99 for 116 pages (a retro video game mag­a­zine) so I think we are pretty much spot on. What is good is that we are also giv­ing you a spread of new prod­ucts a month AND a page of tested prod­ucts from now on. Fi­nally, we are up­dat­ing our let­ter prizes and ‘Show Us Yours’ prizes, so we will cheer you up this month with a free set of Bridge­stone tyres!”
