From the Back Cover:

Relive the birth of the sport and the invention of the machine. In this fascinating book, Frank Berto, former engineering editor of Bicycling magazine, leaves no stone unturned in his quest for the truth about the beginnings of mountain biking and the invention of the mountain bike.

Illustrated with numerous period documents and vivid photographs by two of the early pioneers themselves (Wende Cragg and Erik Koski), this book should put an end to the question of who invented the mountain bike. At the same time, it will let you experience the pioneering days of the sport for yourself.

About the Author:

Frank Berto is the former Engineering Editor of Bicycling Magazine. He has been writing about the bicycle for the cycling press for 25 years and has written several books on the subject, including The Dancing Chain: History and Development of the Derailleur Bicycle, and Bicycling Magazine's Guide to Upgrading Your Bike.
