5.0 out of 5 stars One stop reference to bike repair. 17 Nov 2000
By A Customer
A slim volume which nonetheless manages to get in the essentials. Well explained, plenty of photos, glossary of terms and shows how to fix your problem be you a touring, racing or mountain bike owner. Also gives advice on monthly and annual maintainance and a "trouble shooting" guide at the back to tell you what that funny noise could be. Good value for money and my constant companion throughout brake servicing, transmission niggles and the trueing of wheels. An excellent introductory text to the workings of your two-wheeled steed.

3.0 out of 5 stars too high-level for its intended use 10 Dec 2001
It's small, you can carry it around with you, it's got loads of nice colour photos, but unfortunately it doesn't have sufficient detail to really explain how to do much maintenance or repair at all!! I needed a real "how-to" kind of book and this is not it

An easy to read book, but hasn't got the detail needed for complete idiot proof servicing / maintenance.

A prompt fast service, brills. The book itself fits nicely into the front pocket of my back pack for handy repair whilst on the move.
