With your brain, Fubar, you could master this.

I'll bet the chapters are the same-only the tyre diameters and widths are different.

Hey Fubar5. Are you working on your Aussie lingo? Or are you an expat?

CHEERS.

Oim jess troin to talk like me dinkum good aussie buddies!

I got the Third edition..No the latest but I got it for 15 bucks off of half.com. It is a great book! The only annoying part is that there are so many illustrations that they aren't always on the page you are reading from, so you may have to flip several pages forward or backwads to see the illustration you need. Other than that I like it. He gives jobs a level, like installing a headset is level two, and for every level he has a list of required tools. Level one is basic tools for basic maintenance stuff, level two is for people who tackle a few repairs as well as maintenance, and level three is for people who could build up a bike. The appendix in the back is great, its got info on fitting a bike and all sorts of other stuff.
