Format: Paperback
I like this book. It covers most aspects of bicycle maintenance. The troubleshooting sections were helpful. I liked the full page colour photographs of bikes in action. I think it would have been better to have used colour photographs to accompany the step by step instructions. There is a lot of text in this book, which at times I found dull and boring. I prefer The Bike Book which is a British book published by Haynes whereas this book is American.

By Jh Kim Lee on 30 Mar. 2011
Format: Paperback
Excellent book about bike maintenance, all procedures and tools are well described and each is illustrated with excellent pictures which always helps.

As a regular daily cyclist bike maintenance is a basics issue but with this book tackling more complex maintenance tasks aren't as daunting as before so trips to the bike shop are not so needed.
Warning: Not for anyone "allergic" to getting their hands dirty!

A good introduction to the modern bicycle for an oldie like me who hasn't pedalled much since his youth. Probably interesting even for someone who doesn't plan to take care of his or her own bicycle. Clear text descriptions of the different maintenance tasks are accompanied by helpful photos - a shame these couldn't all have been in colour, presumably because of the cost.
