School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-7Brimner presents a rather technical look at the history, safety, and repair of these popular, rugged bicycles. He also includes advice on choosing and buying a bike, using a helmet, competitive riding, and issues of ecology and ethics when riding through wildlife habitats. Chapters are straightforward and succinct. Full-color photographs are well placed but sparse and show little diversity among the riders. There is a helpful sketch of the bike and its parts, but the diagram of the gears is uncaptioned and confusing. A list of mountain-bike organizations and magazines is appended. This is a serviceable title for reports and for bike enthusiasts, but libraries owning Andy King's Fundamental Mountain Biking (Lerner, 1996) won't need it unless there is a great demand for the subject.Beth Tegart, Oneida City Schools, NY
