Good book marred by advertising
on 3 June 2014
Naturally, any company who publish a book will slip in a few adverts to push their product. This one takes the mick though, Every other sentence is a sales pitch and it gets quite boring.
The information itself reads like a GCSE revision book insofar as it's all explained in a very simple and easy to understand age if you're 15. For a bloke in his 30's it's a bit annoying and you have to wade through loads of text before you stumble on a bit of pertinent information.
There are a few terms in the book which they manage to confuse with each other – sag, static sag and rider sag and seem to interchange quite frequently. It’s not so bad if you already understand these terms but if you’re picking up the book as a novice then you may spend a while before you figure out that they’ve used the wrong term.
Also note that the second half of the book is dedicated to pictures showing how to service various types of suspension units with a few “hilarious” snaps thrown in...
