Cycle Source Magazine

In our V-Twin industry, reaching your 10th year anniversary is quite an achievement. Especially when you are a “grass roots” motorcycle magazine. Even more when you start as the local level (Tri-State around Pittsburg), and end up a decade later by being a national publication sold in all Barnes & Noble bookstores in the US & Canada. Maybe you never got a copy of Cycle Source, so just let me say that it’s a very different magazine from the other big names of the motorcycle publishing business. Probably complementary of the others you are already reading. Christopher Callen, its Chief Editor, describes his magazine as developing, on purpose, un-extreme topics. And it deserves an explanation. His magazine centers on the average biker, its lifestyle, and develops stories he can relate to in real life. The Cycle Source staff believes that by riding along side of the average everyday rider, putting the time in and racking the miles up, they are more in touch with them.  In a couple of words Cycle Source has a “grass roots” approach.

    I agree. Chris has a passion for motorcycling that comes through in the pages of his magazine.He doesn’t simply write about biking, he lives it!

    I have been to several events that Cycle Source Magazine has sponsered or have been a part of. Bike shows down on the warf in Pittsburgh are a regular summer event and these guys are the real deal they put on a great show and draw bike builders from a lot of different states.. I met some of the Cycle Source crew thanks to a good friend Bob O’Hare Owner of Performance Cycle in Sharpsville Pa. Believe me when I say these guys give NEW meaning to the words Ride Hard. Everyone from this crowd is the real deal, customizing and building from scratch and always ready to help someone in a pinch. When they say Grass Roots ,they mean it. They deserve all the compliments they get and more. To get a real thrill ride into downtown Pittsburgh some day and enjoy all the bridges , levels, rivers ,hills and in particular enjoy all of the good people. See ya all at the next great Bike Night.

    Having had the opportunity to meet and get to know the fine people at CSM, i have to say there are very few people in the rag business that come close to the professionalism, understanding and drive as Chris and the staff there. He’s not one of the guys that just flies to or shows up at the last minute to cover an event, but he RIDES to every event! RIDES. And he’s there meetin’ and greetin’ those of us small guys (and big guys too) in the industry and trying to get our story out. I can’t think of a better magazine. Great guys, great magazine, great to know there are still people like Chris around.
    (I’m not too biased on them am i?) πŸ™‚
