5.0 out of 5 stars One stop reference to bike repair.
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars too high-level for its intended use
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

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.

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

Maybe its me, but i found this book, as a complete beginner, a bit unclear in its info and illistrations. Once i take my bike apart i hope it will be more understandable.

Excellent and personal service from this vendor. Amazing how they managed to make buying a book on the internet seem more like visiting a friendly local bookshop. All appreciated.

This review is from: Richards' Bicycle Repair Manual: Everything You Need to Know to Keep Your Bicycle in Peak Condition (Paperback)
This book is now a little out of date so if you have a modern bike you may want to buy the most up to date edition. However if you have an old bike it is ideal and is very good value for money
