3.0 out of 5 stars A definite "I wish I'd bought something else" 26 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This would be a (usually) ok lightweight in its field if the field wasn't so crowded, both on bookstore shelves and on the web. Key sections sometimes don't separate bike or component types enough to be clear, which could be literally fatal, as one of these sections is on brakes. I'd rely on Park Tools website, or take a chance on the latest edition of Anybody's Bike Book, which used to be excellent and I see now is in a new edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars bike maintenance 31 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved this book, well laid out and written, simple to follow instructions for a novice upwards. As it's a reference you can pick and choose what to read, with handy tips and advice thrown in. If you want to take care of your bike yourself, look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bike repairs and maintenance 26 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book gives simple advice on topics such as checking tyres/wheels (dealing with punctures), checking brakes and correct chain ratio with gears/derailleur.

Very useful as I can do my own maintenance without taking my bicycle to the shop all the time.

I actually thought this was a motor bike book as it was in the motor bike section, but never mind will come in handy for all the push bikes in the family

3.0 out of 5 stars Good overall book 14 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
Good book, could do with more on gears, how to adjust and tweak them. Good overall knowledge, could do with more diagrams to help explain procedures too!
