    From Chris, a mountain biker in Australia:

    —- —- —-

    Lee,

    I got my copy a few days ago, thank you.

    Firstly, I was astounded as to how good looks in the flesh. And it is huuuuge.

    The ‘Flow’ chapter is unreal. The sequences are amazing and the photos have an HDR quality about them and I think that really makes Danny ‘pop’ off the page. There definitely were no jet hops and pick-ups when I raced, so the timing of the book is great in that regard.

    I really think it is better than MMBSII for getting a rider to go from newb to pro, but I guess BMX is a little less complicated than MTB because the terrain is, ah, more standard, if you know what I mean.

    And it just says ‘Lee McCormack’ on the front, just like MMBSIII ; )

    I don’t think there is a mountain biker who wouldn’t benefit from that book. I wish I had that book when I was racing BMX, I probably would have raced more.

    Congratulations. Really. I hope the BMX mags and sites are running reviews of it.

    Chris.

    —- —- —-

    Thanks Chris! With PBS I tried to use all my coaching knowledge, to, as you say, get riders “from newb to pro.”

    Super stoked that this massive project is hitting its target.

    From Tony in Alberta, Canada:

    —- —- —-

    Lee – Got the book 3 days ago – it was worth the wait! Absolutely packed with everything anyone from a novice to a pro needs to know but takes years to learn and a whole career to master. Great job! I feel faster already…...

    I think this is going to become required reading for anyone even semi-serious so here’s the question

    – any plans to offer it in bulk wholesale orders for clubs, or to bike shops? It would be terrific if it was available through our club, to our members, and I know my sponsor shop would be interested in stocking it.

    thanks again
    Tony

    —- —- —-

    Yes, I will be offering bulk pricing for shops, clubs, distributors, etc. Right now I’m getting 5,000 copies printed on a traditional press. When those get here I’ll be able to offer the lower pricing. Stay tuned. – Lee

  9. Kenny Hunter Says September 22, 2010 @ 9:05 am

    For anyone considering buying this book, I can say this: From start to finish, this book covers everything that ANY bmx racer needs to know, from complete beginner to Elite. Simple, straightforward explanations of the skills and techniques that should be in every racers arsenal. Great photos too. Put simply: If you’re not reading this book you are at a disadvantage. I really shouldn’t be telling everyone how good this book is. In fact, I should be keeping it Top Secret!!

    Hi Lee,

    I got a BMX (20”) after reading your MTB book and have been out on it a few times street and park. After reading some of your Pro BMX book I went down to the local BMX track winter club meeting today (Bournemouth BMX club in the UK). I really enjoyed it and thanks to your great tips I didn’t feel like a complete idiot. There are some pretty good racers in my local club from what I understand but they seem like a nice bunch and apparently there are even some older riders too (I am a 36 year old doctor and am into windsurfing, cycling, skiing and snowboarding). Cheers for your great books – I just wish I lived near enough to come on some of your skills clinics!

    Dan

    P.S. Can I still get a discount on the print version as I’ve now realised that would be really handy too?

    —-

    Hey Dan, sounds like you’re having tons of fun.

    Yes: If you buy the ebook and want to upgrade to the print book (and save $10), just Paypal $23.95 (inside the U.S.) or $33.95 (outside the U.S.) to lee@leelikesbikes.com. Please include your email address and your ebook license number.

    Rock!

    I received my book last night (1/03/11) and have to say that its AMAZING! My two sons and I all race BMX in FL. This book is awesome. I have the Cyclist Bible by Joe Friel and this is the closest thing to that for BMX. It covers everything you need to know from A-Z that either you’d have to find out the hard way or wouldn’t learn. I could not put the book down once I got it. The full color book and detailed still photos of the skills are awesome. My sons and I are looking forward to using this book to better our skills and technique on and off the track. The “cool” factor is that it was signed by Lee himself. Very cool. I highly recommend this to anyone getting into BMX or is already racing/riding BMX. Its great for every skill level.


  15. leelikesbikes Says January 4, 2011 @ 12:14 pm

    Thanks David!

    This book was SO much work. It’s great to see people are stoked.

    In other news, I recently sent a copy to Mike King, director of BMX for USA Cycling, and he wants to make it part of the coach certification program. Stoked!

    Lee, I am almost done reading your book, Pro BMX Skills. Thanks for a killer resource. I practiced some of the turning techniques today at practice and I am excited to work on wiring everything in that sucker over time. It’s very well done.

    I picked up your book last week at the County Line State race. My boys have been reading it this week and my older son (13-I) told me today that he was applying the skills he learned at the track today. I can say that I have never seen him jump and manual so many jumps at Dacono before. He was even reading the book on the way to the track this morning.

    Just wanted to give you some great feedback about the quality of your book and the results we are seeing. On a side note: David Herman was at the track today and my boys noticed him because of the photos in the book. They were too shy to ask for an autograph!

    This is the best book i have ever read, and it really helped to progress my skills.
    PBS should be a must read to trainers at the BMX clubs around here, so all of us can make some progress and have some more fun doing the bike thing.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge!
