Bicycle Mechanics - maintenance book/website
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
The poll about service or not to service a bike has made me realise that I know remarkably little about servicing a road bike. Does anybody have a good book or know of a good website that describes in detail how to peform routine (and after more complex) maintenance?

"Zenn, and the art of..." books are great, i also own the bicycling magazine maintenance and repair book. As for websites, parktool has the best, and the Technical Editor, Calvin Jones is a member here. That website can be found here: http://www.parktool.com/repair_help/FAQindex.shtml
I too got the Zinn book. Very good indeed.
Darn! Where the heck is my bike...:(
