I am a Premium Member because I like to support the things I use and appreciate. The fact that I can also get ready advice from some of the best and most experienced cycling people in the country - what a service and a bargain. Thanks! After reading the Newsletter for so long you guys seem like distant family.
Steve Koester
Thanks for all the good stuff you send out each week. I am a 69 year old road rider and find great benefit from so many of your articles.
Rob Davis

Just read your review of the Fly6. Great job.
Mike Henderson
I would be a premium member in any event just because I think RBR deserves the support. But, believe me, the ability to ask someone of your knowledge and experience a personal question and get a prompt answer is simply amazing!!
Richard Zimmer
You are doing a great job. I've learned a lot from all of you, and the newsletter makes me feel that bicycle riders are one big fraternity.
Del Quenzer
Please keep up the good work with Road Bike Rider. It is a fantastic resource and service to us all.
Bill Thomson
Thanks for your newsletter. It is very well done and always worth my time to read.
Dick Shultz
I have been a reader and Premium Member for some time now. I hope a large percentage of your readers sign up for a Premium account. It's not for the benefits that come with it but that you deserve it for what you put out.
Richard Zimmer
RBR is the one cycling newsletter that I make sure to read every week. There is always something to learn or to which I can relate. Having a small stable of machines, the variety of information provided helps keep me motivated, fit, and mechanically ready to take on whatever the heart can dream up for any given day.
Kevin Mooney
I thought your RBR article “Correcting the False Equivalencies ...” in the current issue was an especially good one.
Stan Purdum
This week's issue--with your bike/car false equivalence article and Doc Mirkin's piece on TMAO--is worth my year's membership all by itself. RBR provides a great service to the cycling community.
Roy in Austin
I really appreciate your outstanding efforts at producing the RBR website and find the weekly Newsletters and eArticles to be extremely valuable.
Charlie Wright

Peter A.
The new site looks great. No other source, either print or digital, offers a more complete source of information about road cycling. Your product information, technical reviews, training books and industry news are outstanding.
Thurman McGarian
My thanks to you for the great job you do getting RBR out every week.

I have been reading RBR since I found out about it several years ago. The articles have provided me with valuable information and have kept me motivated to learn more. RBR is a tremendous resource and a great publication.
Mark Lassler
I'm impressed! Bringing back the PDF Version of the Newsletter is great, but you went beyond that. The unexpected improvements you made to it truly add value, and another benefit of membership. Thanks again for being so responsive!
Roger Fobair
I love RBR and your columns - please keep up the great service to all of us roadies! I am so glad that you guys are there for us all.

I totally love your website! It packs more useful information into every week than all of the flashy sites combined. Happy riding!

Great Article on the cars vs cyclists issue!
Glenn Ashworth
You provide such outstanding customer service in addition to an outstanding free resource to cyclists. Please keep up the great work.
Reuben C.
John, kudos on the new website. I really like the interaction column and the ability to pick and choose which articles I want to read. Well done!
John Mullineaux
John, I'd like to take this opportunity to tell you that for me RBR is one of the best publications I've found on the web (or off for that matter) not just for its cycling oriented content but for its design and ease of use. Don't remember how I was exposed to it (been awhile) but glad it happened. Thank you and your staff of writers for a job well done.
Leonard Ingalls
My membership is one of the best deals I've ever made.
Dale Setterholm
Thanks for all the wonderful RBR content over the years. It's great stuff, and very readable.
Bill Strider
RBR Rocks!
Dick Maloney
Jim, thanks for the quick response to my question, and the detailed answer. I must compliment you and the other contributors to RBR. I have found RBR to be an excellent source of reliable information based on your years of first-hand experience. Keep it up!
Larry Bergen
After reading articles by John Hughes and Gabe Mirkin this morning I checked to make sure I had renewed my Premium Membership. Your site / Newsletter offers great, useful info for the serious but non-racing over-40 rider. Thanks!
Roy R.
John, I submitted a question for the coaches and you passed it on to John Hughes. It's remarkable what he sent back to me. What a wonderful treat it is to have such direct contact. He offered me an excellent guide to rebuilding fitness after being off the bike for an extended period, laced with his years of wisdom. Thanks you for all your hard work and the depth of knowledge your web site provides.
