    Bicycle Machanics Book

    My LBS said that I should get a book so I can do my own repairs on the road, does anyone know of any good books? If you know the full title that would help so much.

    Thanks,

    This one is really great: Complete Guide to Bicycle Maintenance and Repair for road and mountain bikes It is made by bicycling magazine. The only thing that kind of sticnks is that it is a teeny bit out of dat, but for the most part it works really well.

    REPOST ALERT!!!

    Click the Search Forum button at the top of your page and type in repair manual - I just have and there's loads of stuff on here!

    If that fails (unlikely, but hey) you can try Haines Bike Manual (available in UK don't know about US) which is amazing.

    THe Complete Idiot's Guide to Bicycle Maintenance and Repair (or something like that). Its good for basic stuff, but Zinn is much clearer.
