Haynes Bicycle Manual
on 13 May 2013
Using this manual has enabled me to keep my bicycles,new and old in proper
operating and safe condition.Before I had the manual I always had to take my bicycles to the shop.Had to bring it,usually leave it and pay a fair amount of money.The manual gave me an understanding of all facets of bike repair and adjustment. When riding with my group of friends,I became the relied upon,"trail mechanic".At home,with a .75 cent hook from Home Depot the basement became my bike work shop.I can adjust my front and back derailers perfectly.With the information/pictures in the Haynes Manual I have serviced the bottom bracket.Disassembeled/reassembeled/adjusted the rear hub,including the free-wheel.Cleaned and re-lubricated the fork and handlebar stem. Installed and adjusted brakes to work perfectly.The money I saved doing repairs and tune-up's,paid for the book many times. If you put some effort into it,using this manual,your bicycle will always be "bike shop ready" for every ride,giving you the most out of it.
