Publisher Comments:

Have you ever dreamed of riding up a mountain or through fields and forests? Have you been hesitant to trade your road bike for one that will take you through snow, across streams, down old railroad grades, or into the wilds? This book gives fat-tire enthusiasts guidance on how to choose and maintain a mountain bike as well as the fundamentals of how to brake, turn, skip, hop, and balance over a variety of obstacles and surfaces.

Author Michael Strassman shares his experiences and advice on all the basic essentials of mountain biking. Learn how to prepare for your first long ride; how to navigate rocks, logs, and water; how to keep the drivetrain running smoothly; and how to fix a flat tire or adjust the brakes. He also discusses competitive events, including climbing, cross-country, and downhill races.

Whether you want to ride for fun and fitness or to compete, this book will show you how to get the most out of your mountain biking experience.

Synopsis:
