From Library Journal:

Sloane's Complete Book of All-Terrain Bicycles is a new edition (S. & S., 1985) of the author's guide to purchasing, riding, and performing basic maintenance on mountain bikes. The book's narrow scope is justified, since mountain bikes require different criteria for fit and riding technique than their road-going cousins. Sloane flies off on some interesting tangents, e.g., providing advice on how to signal passing airplanes with a tree limb if lost in the wild. On the whole, though, his guide is a useful addition to the literature and is recommended for public libraries. Maintenance is another matter. Mountain bikes are, after all, bikes, and therefore if you can maintain a road bike you can do the same to a mountain bike. The focus of Sloane's New Bicycle Maintenance Manual (S. & S., 1981) is general bike maintenance. Practices covered include keeping brakes and frame safe; adjusting derailleurs (including index systems); lubing and repacking bottom brackets, hubs, and headsets; caring for chains and freewheel, pedals, saddles, handlebars, cables, tires; and trueing and building wheels. While the information here is adequate and Sloane's writing is clear, the same coverage can be found in a number of standard sources libraries may own (e.g., Glenn's Complete Bicycle Manual , LJ 7/73; Bicycling's Complete Guide to Bicycle Maintenance & Repair , LJ 5/1/86; and Anybody's Bike Book , LJ 11/1/90). Recommended for collections lacking one of the above. (Illustrations not seen.)-- Thomas K. Fry, UCLA Libs.
