Bike Maintenance Book

by Dunluce   May 30, 2013  

Can anyone recommend a good bike maintenance book. I've had a look at a few in book shops and some do seem better than others. Glancing through them however, it's hard to tell if everything is covered, are items missing,how good are the explanations etc.

I quite like this one -

Seems to have most things covered in a pretty easy to understand format.

For beginners, Haynes do a good manual, got it for xmas. All major jobs covered, very well illustrated. Does campag as well as shimano, road and mountain bikes.

If you need more detail than is covered in this, I'd recommend going on an actual course

In addition to books, I always find videos on YouTube invaluable to help confirm how to do things!
