Bike Maintenance Books that disciss IGHs? Alfine in particular?
I am thinking of buying an IGH bike. I'd like to educate myself a little about IGH maintenance, particularly the Shimano Alfine. I don't expect to do much of the maintenance myself, but I'd like to understand some of it - the same reason that I have Haynes manuals for the my cars.
I have been looking at Zinn and the other manuals at Amazon, using the "Look Inside" function to check out the indexes. So far, I haven't found a book with Alfine in the index.
Does anyone know of a general bike maintenance book that has a decent discussion of Alfine IGH hubs?
