    Difference between the two Zinn Bike Maintenance books?

    Is there a lot of differences between Zinn's Road bike book and his Mountain bike book? Except for suspension, aren't the parts on road bikes and mountain bikes the same, aside from their dimensions?

    I just picked up his MTB maintenance book as I have a hybrid as a tourer / commuter / life bike. Great purchase!

    Basically yes, the road book has stuff on road brakes, etc, while the mountain book has stuff on disc brakes, suspension, etc.

    Yes, good books!
    Just your average club rider... :)

    Since ShimaNO came out with the low-normal rear derailluier, MTB work has been somewhat of a cluster****. Granted, Campy and Shimano not agreeing on cables is a pain too.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
