i'm a newbie, like everybody we start with the first step, right? well i've always ridden to get around or for fun, now it's more of a transportation system (slowly going to winter too)! but i'm sick and tired of paying bills for shop's maintenance and repairs... i know some basics of maintenance. BUT COULD ANYBODY TELL ME THAT IF "The Big Blue Book Of Bicycle Repair" BY PARK TOOLS IS A GOOD BOOK (to start with)? i just bought "mountain bike maintenance" by mel allwood. but i was wondering if any of you have any advice?
