Overview

Welcome to the wonderful world of mountain biking. I’ll say up front that it’s not for everyone. Some people prefer to climb on their 3-speed and peddle around the neighborhood or their

local park for an hour on the weekend. They don’t want fancy, they don’t exciting. They just want to do the bike version of strolling along.

But for those of us who love the thrill and the challenge of rugged biking, there’s nothing better than a mountain bike. It’s hard to explain to someone who doesn’t share our passion. How

can you explain the sense of adventure and excitement that just climbing on the bike arouses? You can’t.

This book is to lay down the basics. It’s probably not for you if you are a seasoned mountain biker. I’ll give you a good overview of how to get started, which bike makes sense for you, and

what kind of equipment you should choose, as well as a quick overview on how to take care of this not inexpensive investment.

Here are a few of the chapter titles for you:

    Just so so...

    A very very basic book. It would have been nice to have a little more detail on the topics. This book could have benefited from a good proof reading. There were some glaring grammer errors in this book. I expect at the very least when paying for a book that basic grammer errors are caught before publishing. To me this tainted the books contents as well.
