DOWN THE TRAIL
Mountain Bike Action has been in the game longer than just about any other mountain bike publication out there. We practically invented the bike test, and it’s one of the ingre-
dients in our recipe that’s endeared us to our readers. We’ve tested
thousands of bikes over the years and photographed each one along
the way. Our resident photographer, John Ker, knows how to get the
most from our test riders, even if he doesn’t get it on the first try.
There’s a reason we call him John “One more time” Ker. He’s always
after the most “radical” moment of action when photographing any of
our bike tests and, for better or worse, has created the unique MBA
style we’ve come to know and love. These are a few outtakes from
the bike photos that appeared in our December 1996 issue.
