Who knows products better than the people who own them and ride them again and again?
Do you ride mountain bikes? Do you use your brakes?
If the answer to either of those questions is ‘no’, we can’t help you. But if you answered yes, read on…
We’d love to hear your opinions on the brakes you use for riding. How do they perform, and how reliable are they? Are they bearing up to the abuse of regular riding? Were they a good value buy, and would you recommend them to others?
When MBR journalists test disc brakes – or any product, for that matter – we have the advantage that we wear lots of different shoes in the course of our work, so we know how one design stacks up against another. We know what to expect at a given price point, and we may have used previous iterations of the design. But generally – unless we really, really love them – we’ll use the brakes for weeks rather than months or years. We can only talk about the way they perform during the test period. So the more opinions we receive, the better.
So what’s in it for you?
Firstly, we’ll publish your review on our website, and by sharing your experiences (good or bad), you’re helping mountain bikers everywhere to spend their hard-earned cash wisely. You’re also helping the companies that make the best stuff to sell more products and make more money, which can only be a good thing.
Secondly, we’ll pick our favourite review each week and put it on our home page – and if we choose a review that you wrote, we’ll send you a special MBR T-shirt to say thank you for contributing.
Thirdly, if you’re into internet fame, we can tag your Twitter or Instagram handle to help promote your social channels to our big audience. (But if you’re into internet solitude, we won’t.)
So here’s the form. Remember, the more information you put in, the better and more useful your review will be.
