Model/Year: 2010 Version?

Pros: Good basic info.
Pretty current.

Cons: Can never be too current.

Recommendation: Again, books like this can never be too current. New trends in mountain biking move really quickly. Compared to road bikes that haven't changed much in 50 years....the ahead headset being the main one. So, the pics are going to look funny at times with the mountain bike frames in particular. Also topics such as tubeless and TR concepts might not be covered as they're not in my book. But, overall a pretty decent reference book.
I'm still using my 1972 Schwinn shop manual for a lot of things....
