    maintenance book/website

    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
