Strengths:    Pictures speak a thousand words.
Also contains quite a bit for older components so you don't feel left out.

Weaknesses:    In some small areas, it doesn't warn of you potential danger if you make a mistake, but that's hardly the book's fault.

Bottom Line:   
Great book. Very good for beginners. Perfect for the DIY. If you know bikes really well, this isn't the book for you.

There is a book I finished reading called Mastering Mountain Bike Skills by Brian Lopes and Lee McCormack. I highly recommend this read. A friend said it was available at the local library. Now on to the good stuff. After hours of reading I thought I would try some bicycle kung fu as they called it ... Read More »

Good book! "Its All About the Bike"

I'm only about 1/3 through this book, but enjoying it enough to post a qualified recommendation here.

There is also a section of the book dedicated to the different layouts of the city and underground chicago which was aweso ... Read More »
