Mountain Biking is wild, thrilling, brutal, beautiful, and over the edge--the ride of your life--The Ultimate Ride.

Strickland writes from his own experience-and he takes you along. He's become the mountain biker he would've wanted to ride with as a novice. Could've saved him a lot of troubles, he says. And skin. It's skill-intensive: You'll need plenty of techniques and tricks-stuff that's simple to understand and enact, but not so easy to discover on your own. Bill Strickland can show you what you don't even know you're missing. This book is packed with all the nuts and bolts of equipment and techniques, with real-life examples. It's like the best mountain bike ride: loose, expert, and a little in love with the unexpected.

Mountain Bike Magazine's Complete Guide to Mountain Biking Skills : Expert Tips on Conquering Curves, Corners, Dips, Descents, Hills, Water Hazards by Bicycling Magazine's editors List Price: $14.95 Our Price: $11.96 You Save: $2.99 (20%)

If road riding is the arrogant godfather of the cycling world, mountain biking is the fun-loving, black-sheep stepson. The Mountain Bike magazine editors reflect this spirit, tuning their highly accessible guide to both those with dreams of widowmaker descents as well as others just looking for a pleasant Sunday spin on scenic dirt roads. Breaking the sport down into lively yet informative chapters--complete with cartoons and amusing anecdotes--they cover the basics and then some. All technical skills are addressed, including bunny hopping, high-speed cornering, and the terribly elegant nose wheelie. The guide also includes a comprehensive section on cycling fitness and customizing a training program for would-be racers. No one is alienated here, but if you fancy yourself an expert rider, you might want to look elsewhere. This guide is geared more toward the novice whose journey has only just begun. --Ben Tiffany
