Highfield RIBs seem to have fallen out of favour. Maybe they didn't give them a free ride recently?

There is the possibility where a rib does not meet the mark as required, or precieved to be required then the article is not printed in PBR.

That is indeed possible, but it doesn't stop the mag feeling like a collection of puff pieces stuck together with adverts.

I also saw the big XS at LBS yesterday; they've upped their game in terms of bells and whistles and shiney bits. I'm back here today; I'll grab a photo.
