Since buying this book I've changed bottom brackets, chainsets, installed chains, adjusted gears and brakes... I'm a mechanical novice and it's great understanding what makes your bike run smoothly. The illustrations DO work very well, especially where components are exploded. (The black & white photos used in many other manuals just don't work with the complexity of MTB components- you can't see any detail.) Top marks for the drawings and the excellent text. And it's fun. Buy it!

As a relative beginner to the murky world of fixing my bike, this particular book seemed to be the answer to my prayers - as long as it could deliver the goods...
Let's not beat about the bush - the book does what it claims - and does it very well indeed. Zinn's writing style is relaxed and non-threatening - and yet highly informative and clear.
I'm finding that, as I use the book, I'm not just learning how to do things - but I'm learning why. The book is very good on helping you see the links and connections and I'm finding that this is increasing my enjoyment of my bike (a £350 GT hardtail - so nothing extravagant).
The illustrations - though basic, are very clear and easy to follow - again full marks.
All in all, I'm really pleased with this book - if I could only get my riding up to the same standard!

This book is the best I have come across for anyone wishing to maintain their MTB at home, it is easily understood and I felt by using drawings it made the text easier to understand than a series of photographs may have done
My only criticism would be that it does not cover the Marzocchi range of forks only Manitou and Rockshox, but seeing as the manuals are downloadable from the net it is only a small complaint.
If you want to keep your bike out of the Bike Shop and save yourself a good few pounds this is money well spent
