    Best Bike Repair Book

    I like to do my own repair work. I don't beleive anyone else cares as much about your bike as you do. Plus life on the road is much easier if you know what to do when things happen and the best way to know is by doing.

    I just saw the new Park Book and it looks pretty good but not very deep.

    Any suggestions on more comprehensive and still up-to-date books?

    What do you mean by deep? I have the Park Big Blue Book and keep it in my workshop. So far it has covered anything I needed--ISIS bottom bracket replacement, chainring replacement, disk brake adjustment, etc. Highly recommended.

    Yes. Barnett's Manual. It's pricey, but Amazon has it at a substantial discount.
