Look back to our previous edition (issue 17), bag the current one (18) and look forward to the future with the next one to be released (issue 19), which will be printed in April 2017. Here's what you get:
The previous issue: Boneshaker #17
"Two brave wheels. The wilderness beckoning.
Riding out across this issue are paint-fox-hunting city races, explorations across Europe, Asia and the Americas, thoughts on the poetry of departure and the mystery of retelling the ride on your return. You’ll find our first cyclists’ directory amidst a drift of thoughts from saddles familiar and far-flung."

104 pages, carefully printed with vegetable inks on thick, uncoated Challenger offset paper, perfect binding, and with a foil-blocked cover printing for extra shiny-shiny. It even smells good.
The current issue: Boneshaker #18
“I am at the edge
somewhere deeper in myself...”
So ends a poem you'll find lost amid these pages – and it touches on much of what this issue seems to revolve around: the unpredictable enriching that bicycles bring to life.
Smells and sounds. Newness and nostalgia. Lust for life kicks, pell-mell pelting against the clock, riding with newborns and new limbs, meanderings in Lesotho, Zanzibar, China and beyond, and a powerful reminder that cycling is so much more than a sport: this issue embraces the somewhere deeper, reaching for the serendipitous mystery that life on two wheels can become. It's escape and belonging, it's togetherness and solitude, it's sensory salvation.
Another beautiful 100-pager, with foil-blocked covers illustrated by Riccardo Guasco.
The next issue: Boneshaker #19
We're still making this one, so content is currently a mystery - but you can expect more adventures, poetry, illustration and off-kilter tales from the thoughtful side of cycling. We aim to print Issue 19 in April 2017.
