I'm new to bicycling and need a repair/service manual. It would need to be written so a beginner can understand it. Also, can anyone advise which tools would be absolutely necessary for bike repair? Thanks.

tons of sources and help...

on line, you can use www.parktool.com - repair section. Or www.sheldonbrown.com.

Essential tools are Allen keys & perhaps Torx keys, medium crescent wrench, flathead screwdriver. Americans call those hex sets and star sets.
sample starter kit: http://www.parktool.com/products/detail.asp?cat=6&item=WTK-1
Best tool?

Your own knowledge set of how the bike's parts work and interact; this allows you to deal with almost any situation. See other posts on Zinn.

good luck, Jim
