Strength:

Funny, well written and easy to follow..especially for a newbie like me.

Weakness:

I'm about 3/4 the way through and none so far.

Again, funny and well written. The writer is in NO way "holier than thou". I rode BMX way back when and thought I knew all I needed to know to tackle XC trails in AZ...wrong. This book has helped me out tremendously. I now feel I can get the most out of my pricey new toy.

Strength:

covers many areas of mountain biking, from the point of view of someone who is not a pro and relates to the average joe. advice is aimed mainly at the trail rider, although it does have a section on racing towards the end. has some good photos to demonstrate techniques.

Weakness:

more photos would have been nice. videos are still better than books.

this is an entertaining book with a lot of good advice for the average rider who is looking to increase his skills. it's also very good for beginning riders. i especially enjoyed his chapter on clipless pedals, it was the most realistic i've seen. the only real downside to the book is that it can't replace a good video (like ned overend's) for learning new techniques. it's still a good read and a nice addition for your library.

Similar Products Used: lots of them, particularly ned overend's book.
