Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous The book is just too basic to be of any real use, it is probably helpful for the very simplest of maintenance but lacks depth for the trickier work (shocks, linkages etc).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Our family has nine bicycles. In a country where a request in a shop to have a repair completed can be met with "come back in two weeks" and a very large bill, this book has proved an absolute gem. Clear, practical instructions. Guides to working on all parts of the bike that are clear and easy to follow. Indispensable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very well written, comprehensive and clear for even a mechanical dufus like me. An essential book to own for all bike owners. Well worth the money as it will save you a few trips to your local bike shop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous a good useful and informative book that would have been so much better with bigger, clearer photographs.
some of the pictures (at least in my book) lack contrast and definition and i personally would have paid more money for a better product. otherwise its the best bike maintenance book i've found to date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous I have the 1st edition of this book. I keep it on my table at all times. I think that the powers contained within this grimoire are at work to keep my bike's gremlins at bay. Be warned, however: these powers require sacrifices... I have discovered that leaving oily fingerprints on the pages does just fine in that regard.
