Where to Buy
very disappointing, a waste of money
by: on: 12-Oct 2010
I decided to buy this book after reading the good reviews, I was looking for a fairly basic book to help me with bicycle maintenance and some easy repairs or adjustments, like how to adjust a rear derailleur, etc. I am very disappointed, the book is filled with technical language, there are a series of photos with little or no legend, which makes it very difficult or impossible to understand and follow the instructions, annotated graphics would have helped a lot instead.
if you are a professional and familiar with bike repair, then this book probably makes sense, but then, do you really need this book?
otherwise if you are like me, with very limited technical knowledge, you are better off with something more basic and/or better explained with helpful graphics.
Terrific Bike Repair Book

This is an excellent bike maintenance and repair manual for a mountain bike neophyte like myself. Also tells a bit of bicycle history as background for where we are today with bike technology. A great buy for it's cost.
Book is garbage

This book is a joke. If you plan on repairing your bike this is NOT the book to use. Book is very vague and not to the point. Very general when explaining repairs. Pictures are terrible and black and white. Do yourselves a favor do not waste your time.

Been a pleasure to own this one. Comprehensive. Glossary could be better. I find myself looking for something I knows in there but not listed in glossary. every cyclist ought have one imo.
