This is a great bike repair almanac. I use it in conjunction with YouTube tutorials (they provide better angles of the jobs) to get pretty much all of my bike repairs done. I really like how the BBB shows you exactly which tools you will need for each job; This is a great go-to guide for those who are tired to pay others to fix things that can be done at home. Most of the tools are things you can find in your toolbox although, clearly, some bike-specific items must be purchased. site

Weakness:

This book is clearly written for those who have a basic understanding of repairs/tools/etc, not for the true beginner; however, it doesn't advertise itself as a "Beginner's Guide to..." so if you're looking for step-by-step instructions, check out the Big Blue Book.. Florida SEO Company

I am new to bike repairs and learned a lot by watching videos on youtube. However, nothing beats having a perfectly illustrated, well written book with every imaginable specification and tool recommendation. This book is a small investment that I'm sure will pay big dividends down the road or trail for that matter. I highly recommend this book for bicycle mechanic wannabees. I am in the process of upgrading my drivetrain components to the Shimano XT Deore level. This book makes it simple. Just finished replacing my cables, housings and bike chain. With this book and the right tools, anyone can keep their bike in perfect condition. By ordering the parts online and installing them myself, I save a ton of money. No more waiting 3-4 weeks for the bike shop. Texas LLC

Weakness:

None that I can think of as of the moment. Vigrx

Very much informations. Very useful informations. Goes deep in the facts and details. Very reliable (Calvin Jones, Park Tool—an questions? ;-). Easy to reproduce in the basement on the bikes. Also teaches mechanical skills. I got this paper version in german language in the basement. The BBB-4 i got as an eBook in english. I really would recommend this book* to everybody willing to learn a lot about maintaining a bike. Every bike. Mountain, road ... * To compare: I got the Unior Bicycle Mechanics Book 1 and 2 too. Those two are unable to hold the candle to Park Tool's Blue Book. No Explanations on details. It's kind of an user manual type of books ...

Weakness:

No weakness so far as I could find any.
