Ned, the Lung

Ned is one of the finest examples of a athlete. He is one that just wont quit, he loves the sport, the competition and most of all he challenges himself. Its great when such a athlete stops and takes some time to help out his fans by writing such a helpful book. Some of it most experienced riders will already know, but still the book contains tips and such to fine tune your skills. The biggest help for me was his tips on fitting the bike. After following his tips my S-Works feels and handles all so much better. Its the little things. For the cost of book you cant beat it. Instead of subscribing to a cycling magazine in hope of finding new help, save yourself some money and time and get it all in one source. Ned is a great guy, rides some of the best bikes made, he knows his stuff.. Although he is a busy guy with Xtera and all he even takes some time to meet, email and answer questions. The book itself will make techniques make more sense and easier to concur. Buy it for yourself or a friend, its a great gift!

The Essential Primer for Mountain Biking

Whether you are just getting into the sport, or already an avid rider, you will find this book full of useful tips across virtually all dimensions of riding. Ned has done a great job of distilling his years of experience into practical advice that anyone can quickly put to use. Though more photos would be even better, the book is clearly illustrated to ensure that you see each recommendation in action.I have been mountain biking for more than a year, and the only regret I have about reading this book is that I didn't do it sooner--it would have saved me from a few falls.Forget your owner's manual, this book should be included with every new mountain bike sold!

Last week I purchased this book and have read it cover to cover. The book is set up so you can read and work on specific aspects of Mountian Biking. The tip sections are extremely helpful as are the drill tips. I would recommend this book to anyone new our experienced. There is a ton of information on how to prpare for races and epic rides.
