There's a risk that I've overdone the autumnal colours this issue, but the reds and gold backgrounds are hard to resist:

Anyway, here's a brief look at what's coming up this issue!

I'm looking forward to this but fear it will cause a desire for n+3… I've always liked the idea of the CT700 since they put big wheels on it, I've always admired Pedersens, and I've always fancied a Birdy… I might be financially ruined if I read this issue!
