Hi Folks,

Can anyone help, I want to try to identify an old mountain bike book I once had, but haven't seen for years.
The book had a Klein on the front,
A good history of the origins of mountainbiking (lots of pictures of repack races and the old breeze bikes
a black and white picture of a slingshot.
A bit on frame builders (fisher if I remember)
Some stuff on a specialised stumpjumper.
And near the back some stuff on shimano manufacturing.

Can anyone help me identify what it was?

Kind regards,

Richard

Unfortunately nothing else. Sorry,

It was in the college library when I was a lad back in the early 1990s. Might have been an american book, there were certainly some exotic looking bikes in it.

I honestly can't remember any more than that.

I might have this book... I’m at work now. I’ll post a screenshot of front cover when I get home. Your description sounds very similar

I’ve actually posted some photos of this book... it was in a thread with a black & pink pro flex? Maybe with green spring?
