When Rob van der Plas wrote The Mountain Bike Book in the early 1980s, he essentially wrote the mountain biker's bible. It has remained the finest book on this fastest-growing segment of bicycling. This new edition is loaded with up-to-date information on the sophisticated technology that now goes into mountain bike design and components. The author presents this information in a clearly written fashion, making it easy for readers to absorb and use this wealth of data. The book's 200 color photos make it a superb value. Mountain biking legend Charles Kelly has added a section on the many styles of mountain bike racing and how enthusiasts can get involved. This is valuable information as racing is attracting eager participants the way 10K roadraces did at the peak of running's popularity
