Master MTB Skills

Hello Dudes

I’ve been reading “master mountain bike skills” and its bloody brilliant, I’ve been m’bikng for 17 years and this book has taught me a great deal, also I reckon it’s improved me riding, mainly because you learn the theory of why you do certain things, its defo worth a look.


Overview

Also a review here.

I see that someone has found the bold function ;-)

I can use all the help I can get so if the book is so good then I'll tag into onto Santa's letter.

Hey toons, are you on commission ?

Moderate him! Moderate him! Use the power, Luke!


Farqui said...

Okay, okay. I was going easy on him as it's his 1st blog.

Zap !


Farqui said...

Forgive me toons, but I've also been playing with the formatting and your blog seemed like a suitable guinea pig !

Thanks for this recommendation - is the book available in th UK? Have thought about going on a skills course at some stage, maybe next spring, Is anyone else interested? David has also promised me some tuition, but the solution seems to be 'get out and ride more' + Lots of practice. Not sure I can manage either at the moment :-(


Farqui said...

Hmmm, I course might be a good idea.

Anything to stop the bruises !


Farqui said...

"...I course" ?!?

Nah, "...a course"

I curse !


toons said...

Yep, you can get it from Amazon.

How was me first blog!

And sorry about the formatting!


Farqui said...

Blog-tastic toons.

Some pic's of the skils you've learnt might help prove the books worth...


toons said...

LoL, hopefully get some action shots tomorrow.


Farqui said...

Not to mention a full ride report !

Got the book over Christmas and have had a quick scan - tried some of suggested tecnique over the weekend over small step down and found myself flying over it! So will continue to practice!
Bought from play.com, cheapest price, delivery OK.

I've picked this up a few times now and really like the format - it's v.easy to stop/start and chip/change topics. Making it ideal for quiet moments on the porcelain ;)

There's also useful tidbits lurking in there, subtle stuff that seems to make a big improvement. Some things that I hadn't considered and others that now just need hammerin' home.

If anyone would like to borrow a copy then you're welcome to snag mine for a while.
