My son and I are training for a 360 mile (round trip) ride. I've done a few minor bike repairs, but don't feel confident. My main concerns are doing a tune up prior to the ride, and emergency repairs on the road.
We have 11 yr old mountian or hybrid bikes (depending on whom you ask). Mine is a Specialized Hardrock, and my son's is a Bianchi Timberwolf. Both are 21 speeds.
I've seen some books advertised on Amazon.com, and I've browsed the sheldonbrown.com and parktool.com sites. My question is, would those sites provide sufficient info for my purposes, or would a book be better. If a book is better, which one would you recommed?
