5-0 out of 5 stars Bicycle repair and maintenance
Excellant manual! Great info and well illistrated. I use mine a lot!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book... could be better...
This book does a great job covering everything basic to intermediate.I'd highly recommend it and I think that it's the best I've seen in this price range.It's not Barnett's manual but it is better than the Park tools and Zinn books in my opinion.I'd like to see more (and better quality) pictures.I've seen high rescolor pictures in books half this price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Complete, well-written, easy-to-understand.
I like doing repairs and maintenance myself to save money. Now that I have a good bicycle, I want to service it myself. This repair manual is nice. It is full of good illustrations and pictures, tips, and advice. Most things are explained in an easy-to-understand manner. It's obvious that the author likes servicing bicycles, and that he wants the reader to enjoy it too. This makes the book pleasant reading material as well.

Editorial Review

Lennard Zinn explains that it doesn't take special skills to learn how to care for one's bike, only "a passion for spreading new grease on old parts." Clearly, his ambition is to share with newcomers the Zen-like joy of bike maintenance. But it's seasoned bike mechanics that should be tripping over each other for a copy of this comprehensive and ambitious manual. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Still the best guide, but ...
If this the first Zinn MTB maintenance guide you buy, you'll find tons of useful info. If you own the previous version, you'll see most of the material remains the same. The major (and welcome addendum) is the inclusion of rear shocks. However, few models are covered. For front shocks, there is still major and extended references to old forks, which I am in doubt ifpeople still use them, and superficial reviews for new ones. There are a few new items added like tuning rear shocks, Stan Notubes, slime, tubeless etc - but this info is readily available inweb sites. Overall I give this book 4 stars average - five if this is going to be your first copy, three if you have already one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential
I have to say before getting this book I was a little worried it would be to advanced for someone so mechanically challanged to follow but it details just about every thing you would ever want to do on a bike that even someone like me can follow.
5-0 out of 5 stars Benefits for both Veterans and Rookies
As a rookie, I first checked out the second edition Zinn from the local public library - it taught me the basics of adjusting the limit screws on my derailleur and how to replace spokes on my rigid frame mountain bike.

Editorial Review

At first glance, you may think that Nealy isn't serious about teaching riding skills. The hand-printed pages--colored with hilarious animations--give the guide a comic-book appearance. But instead of assaulting his readers with dry chapters on technique, Nealy leads his readers on an entertaining tour of the mountain-biking world and how to survive it. He explains how to bunny hop, how to downhill, how to ride powerfully, and how to crash with style. He also includes a "Stupid Bike Tricks" section. One trick, The Invisible Mountain Biker, explains how to jump off of your bike and let it glide, unmanned, Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Kids book
Personally I found the style of this book irritating. Its 100% hand written text and cartoons, which don't provide a lot of detail and the jokes were lame. The information is not incorrect - I just found it didn't have enough detail to replicate the moves. And its old... eg, the importantance of pedals with toe clips! Best left for the kids

5-0 out of 5 stars Funny with Great illustrations and Information!
Love this book! It's a classic. I have bought it for many friends when they buy their first mountain bike.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear instructions reinforced withgood diagrams and photographs
Clear instructions on how the bike and associated parts work, how to fix with good drawings or photos to clarify the text.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well laid out and up to Date
This book is the best description of cycling maintenance that I have seen. Lots of clear pictures, great layout thorough explanation with great tips that come from experience. The best part about this book? It covers all this current technologies on bikes. Eg how to bleed hydro breaks, how to dismantle and service some common brand forks and rear shocks, sealed bearings etc. A lot of work has gone into this book and it deserves the 5 stars. Cheers.

3-0 out of 5 stars For young eyes only?
I was disappointed to see what really seems to be a promising text (see the other, enthusiastic, reviews) that is compromised by its designer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Motivating
I really don't know if someone can improve your skills by reading a book. If you think so, Brian Lopes book is a better choice. Ned's book, however, is a really motivating tool. You will want to ride 100000000000000000 km after reading the book. As a mountain biker for almost 5 years, i must assume that the book is beginner's oriented.

5-0 out of 5 stars NED'S CHAMPION AND HIS BOOK IS HIS COMPENDIUM
If you feel like reading a book may boost your skill to ride a bike, well don't look any further: grab Ned's masterpiece and absorb it to your deepest neurons. Why? Because Ned's Ned. He takes you through five milestones or temple's columns: Balance, pedaling in circles, shifting frequently, vision and braking. Of course the book has a lot more to tell you, but if you master these five, you'll be light-years ahead. Do not believe that reading will take you to the next level of skill, but READING AND PRACTISING YES. Buy Ned's book and carefully follow his hints, practice them till boredom and you'll be flabbergasted of how farther you can get. I did it and my friends are now behind me....

4-0 out of 5 stars Very usefull book
I found this book very usefull, the only catch is the bike slang used to describe every situation, technique, etc. As my nature language is not English it was a lot more difficult to understand every concept explained on the book... maybe for some others this will not be a problem.

5-0 out of 5 stars What it claims to be
I raced to win the overall expert category title in my age group in the Intermountain Cup Race Series (the tri-state race series for Utah, Wyoming, Idaho) in 2002. How? Hard work, natural ability, and this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars It made me faster and last longer!
I began mountain biking February of this year('03).I threw up on my first ride.I raced my first race in April and came in 22nd of 24 finishers.I bought this book in May.About five months later I was flying through our local tough park, Markham maintained by ClubMud.org (believe it or not we have some decent cross country MTB parks in Florida).I went from a best single lap of over an hour to multiple laps of 45mins each.In the fall Ford Tough Series I placed 2nd overall in my category (Men Beginner 30-34).What a rush!5-0 out of 5 stars BEST I'VE READ
Great book for putting together a training program!Most others simply aren't clear.The charts, graph and sample program schedules are very helpful if preparing for and upcoming season.Bottom line - Start with this traing booke first, you won't be disappointed! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book for all technical bike skills
This book covers everything in Mountain Biking from selecting a bike, to jumping doubles.The book covers all skills from the basic to the extreme, but it seems to concentrate more on skills needed for riding technical terrain.The techniques in the book are explained very well with photos and diagrams, and it is an entertaining read.Really the only thing lacking in this book is XC training stratagies.However this topic probably deserves a book to itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars great tool for improving your riding
I'm lucky enough to live near some great off road trails - the Avalon area in Maryland. Problem is that I'm an old guy (the bike I had before the Cannondale Prophet I just bought is older than you!) (all right - I'm over 50) and I really like riding trails. So, now I've got a new bike that's a lot more capable than me, I want to get better. The trails I ride are twisty single track with lots of roots, rocks, stream crossings, occassional short downhills with berms on the turns... great stuff. Well, enough about me (it is all about me though isn't it?), but this book was a great help. First, as they say in the book "let the bike roll". When you're perched at the top of a gnarly section it's nice to be able to call up your mantra of "let the bike roll" as you head down into a gully full of rocks, roots, fallen branches etc. The book gives solid advice on skills to learn so that you get the most out of your bike (things like weighting and unweighting). It gives you insight into how to do things like manuals, hops, etc that most riders don't know how to do. (To learn you have to practice but this book really helps get you started). I've really enjoyed the book and read it and try stuff in it practically every day.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Step-by-Step I have read for mountain biking
The combination of experienced authors, supportive facts, and the fashion in which the material is presented makes this book the best way to learn about mountain bike skills.The format is what I like the most. There are clear frame by frame pictures of moves with concise descriptions to go with them.The authors also provide interesting scientific facts about cycling physics. The troubleshooting sections are also helpful.The chapters are all well organized and packed full of helpful and not so obvious information. Any rider can benefit from this book.The book is more than a list of tips (like most other books: outside foot down, look ahead, etc.) It is the best tool that I own for improving my skills next to my bikes. I am a seasoned racer and I am learning so much from this book. Buy it! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars outdated, inaccurate, not at all helpful
My goodness, book reviews can be deceiving. Especially when an author asks good friends to write positive reviews to help sell a book. One reviewer wrote; "he's (the author) ridden every one (trail) at least twice so the information is very accurate." This is far from the truth. The author wrote about accessing trails where the access was lost to developement years before he wrote the book. He couldn't have ridden the trail even once. The distances listed between turns on existing trails are off by so much you'll find yourself stopping and turning around after you don't see any turn where he says there will be one. Like bikeboy stated in his review, the book is too much filler, the maps are too small to be helpful, the book is too bulky to be carried in a pack, and not a helpful guidebook. No local shops even carry the book because they say it will get you lost. They sell much more accurate local trail guidebooks. My husband and I use guidebooks wherever we travel and this one is the least helpful we have seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars Far exceeds expectations
Each time I return to this book I recognize how many little extras it includes, such as vertical profiles, several ways to find or select a trail, a good place to satisfy post-ride munchies, or the phone number of a local bike shop in a nearby town for an emergency repair.2-0 out of 5 stars whole lot of nothing
This thing weighs in at a whopping 19 ounces. Way too much paper filler with all sorts of peripheral information about mountain biking in general, but not enough specific details about the best Arizona trails.The maps were done with a GPS, but a gray line drawn by a computer over a b&w topo that covers only 1/4 page just does not get it. You've probably heard the expression that a camel is a horse designed by committee.This is a book written by a knowledgable mountain biker then stuffed into the Falcon/Globe-Pequot format. This fomulaic (sp?) approach to a mountain bike guide just doesn't work.The local guides and maps are cheaper, better and lighter. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life!
Before I read this book, I would stare blankly at my bike and never had any clue how it worked.After I started to read it, every little part of the bike took shape and I began to understand how everything fit together, how all the components were made, and how to diagnose problems with them.I started fixing and upgrading my bike, bought a couple of old bikes and refurbished them, and just had a great time doing all of it.
3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I like fixing and modifying bikes almost as much as I love riding them.I have an extensive toolset and can perform many repairs myself.So..... around 2001 I received this book as a gift and thought that it would be comprehensive and high quality because Bicycling magazine published it.I was very disappointed. --It is poorly organized and indexed. --Most components shown are from the early to mid-1990s. Coverage of modern components (carbon fibre, gripshift, aerobars, areowheels, hydralic brakes, v-brakes, sealed bearings, etc) are either missing or very poor. --Drawings are incomplete. Drawings are used where a picture would be better. --Some pictures are small, unclear, poorly lit, or at weird angles.--Some pictures exist for operations that are very common or clear, while pictures of more complex tasks are missing.--Spelling and grammer errors make it obvious it was not proof-read before publishing.
1-0 out of 5 stars I just wanted to adjust my brakes
This book is poorly organized.The photos are not labeled.There is an exploded view of sidepull brakes but no photo or diagram of the actual brakes and what they look like put together.

5-0 out of 5 stars Author's Note
I'm working on a new edition of Kissing the Trail NW & Central Oregon, though I'm not certain when it will come out. It will be my eleventh guidebook. The first edition went out of print in 2002. Too bad (it was my previous publisher). While I've been out updating this book, I've found that, actually, most of the info is still correct and up-to-date, despite what the previous reviewer claims. Yes, there are trails like Post Canyon, Gales Creek, and some trails near Bend that need some serious revisions. However, the accuracy of the descriptions, maps, elevation profiles, directions, gps coordinates of the other 65 or so trails still works. That's why people are paying $40 or more for used copies--it's clearly still the best mountain bike guide for Oregon. And worthy of more than one star. The new edition will have 80 to 90 rides, including the North Umpqua epics near Crater Lake and the Scappoose freeride area near Portland. Plus more attitude and lots of new photos. Keep tabs on the progress at adventurepress.com.

This BOOK is way out of date, there must be a follow up to this book.Mtn Biking in Oregon is exploding and there is not a current up to date book with all the new trails and rerouted trails.

This book is an outstanding resourse for central oregon.Riding near Bend is awesome and this book shows the way to outstanding rides.I have three other books covering Oregon and this one has many trails that are not found in my other books.This is a must if you are planning a trip to central oregon.Try the Newberry Caldera rim trail! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive
I recently used this book on a tour of mountain bike rides through Washington State and recommend it highly.The route descriptions are well-detailed.I will say that the writing is strangely uneven--some chapters are bland, while others are very colorful.In any case, it tells you where the great rides are, gives you a sense of what your experience will be on the trail, and makes sure you find your way back afterward.4-0 out of 5 stars Good coverage of the major trails across the state
If you're going to be mountain biking in Washington, this should probably be one of the first trail guides in your collection.It covers almost 90 of the major rides all over the state.5-0 out of 5 stars A great read
Although I haven't had a chance to actually -try- most of the trails in the book, it seems to be a great guide telling you how to get to the trail, and what to expect on the trail itself.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Mountain Bike! Florida, 2nd: A Guide to the Classic Trails
The problem with the book is that there are not many great mountain bike trails in Florida and the few which are available are spread across the state. If you are a frequent mountain biker with intermediate skills you will get to know about the right trails in the bike shops and online.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not as thourough as could be...
This book covers most of the popular trails in my area (panhandle) with detailed information about each.I especially like the authors descpritions on his personal rides.I do have one complaint however. The author gives general info about rescue and local services, but leaves out specifics like local bike shops, hotels, maybe even restaraunts.It would be nice to have this type of info if you are planning on traveling some distance to one of the listed trails so that you could plan accordingly.Otherwise a great book and an interesting read for early evenings when you can't actually be out on a trail tearing across a single-track.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book on trails in Florida
This book is a good beginners guide to mountain biking in Florida. The book is divided into sections of the state which make it easy if you are just looking for a place to ride close to home. Also included is a map of the state with ride location marked on it. There is also another helpful section which lists the trails according to type, for example, beginners, advanced, family, scenic, etc. Each trail has a sketched map layout of the trail along with information on the general location, elevation change, aerobic and technical difficulty, scenery, hazards, services along the way, rescue index, and how to find them.
