Much expanded and updated new edition of the book that started out by trying to answer the question, who invented the mountain bike. Well, it turns out the mountain bike has many fathers and mothers, and this edition of the book credits them all. Illustrated with numerous period color photographs, this book is truly a celebration of the early days of the sport.
