Has it been a year already?
It’s official…Mountain Biking by 198′s first blog post was on March 18, 2008. What started off as a simple blogger based thought gathering page for mountain biking related content, ended up being full out cycling related blog and 374 articles later…we are growing like crazy! I would like to think that it is because I have an extremely cool online persona, but the truth is…it is because of you guys! Thank you for the support and interaction over the past year. It has been a lot of work, but Mountain Biking by 198 is nothing without it’s readers.
The Mountain Biking by 198 Design
Over the past year, we have seen 4 different blog designs until we finally got something that really works. That is thanks to the guys over at Justtheweb.com and specifically…Justin Shattuck. Speaking of the Shatt…he was also brought on as a partner in early 2009 as we progress into other disciplines of cycling and grow this site (and others in the oneninety8 network) to that next level.
Product Reviews by Mountain Biking by 198
Mountain Biking by 198 has seen a lot of product in one years time. Over 50k in mountain biking related products has seen their way through these pages. We have been fortunate enough to review some of the best parts and bikes that the cycling industry has to offer (and some that aren’t so great…).
The post that started it all…
The “New” 15mm Thru-axle Standard from Fox and Shimano.
Fast forward to July 26, 2008 and sure enough…we had one for review on our front doorstep.
2009 Fox Talas 140 RLC 15mm Thru Axle
From there…it went to $1,000 wheelsets and rocket full suspension 29ers in the quest to review everything we can get our hands on for you…our readers.
If all of that wasn’t enough! We also had the chance to give away a Mountain Cycle Fury and Clix QR Wheel Release Systems. And if you thought those were big…just wait to see what we have in store for our second year of operation.
