Procycling delays on the newstand(6 posts)

Procycling delays on the newstandDave Hickey

I buy Procycling every month at Barnes and Noble or Borders. I've noticed a huge delay. Example: At Procycling.com, they say the Feb issue went on sale 1/08 but the January issue isn't even out on the newstand. Does anyone subscribe to ProCycling and do you get your issues faster?

Well, I subsribe to the Procycling and I haven't seen the Feburary issue yet.

I usually get my copy about a week before my local Borders gets their copies in.

FWIW, I'm in North Carolina.

I got mine in the mail a couple of weeks ago. Don't remember exact date. Unlike Cyclesport I think they come in from across the pond. That may be the cause of the delay.

I get mine from my LBS and picked up the current issue with DiLuca on the cover last week.

The new issue, February, hit the UK newstands on the 8th. As someone points out, it's published in the UK and the US issue is likely printed in the UK as well unlike some other publications which have local printers. The date at the website is probably for UK release.

I bought procycling at local newstand for months before I subscribed. If you buy it every month, subscribe and save some $$ and you'll get it sooner too.

I have seen delays of up to a month at newstands/book stores. ie: Procycling.com says February is the current issue and the newstand JUST got January.

On the subject of magazines, I have noticed a delay in delivery lately. Procycling was later than normal, and I never got my January issue of Wired. I had to go buy it at the store. They did extend my subscription by 2 months though when I complained!
