#!markdown They may well do but a lot of their stuff, for example this year's entire bike bible reads quite ridiculously pro their suppliers / products. In the whole Bible, there was barely any pointing out of problems, limits or suggestion of changes, just a focus on only the positive points of almost all the bikes especially from the more in vogue brands. The contrast with say a Dirt review could not be more stark and I don't even look at their stuff now as a result as it just feels like they are more a mouthpiece for their advertisers than anything. This trend generally is the biggest problem I and I suspect many have with regards to trust in the mtb media. How you can possibly 'review' the products of the people who pay you is always going to be a problem if that's where the funding for publications continues to come from.
