    Bicycle Books Recommendation?

    What is the best bike manual regarding component explanations, maintenance, geometry, wheel building, and/or whatever else?
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    For wheel-building specifically, Jobst Brandt's The Bicycle Wheel: http://www.amazon.com/Bicycle-Wheel-...8182217&sr=8-1

    For facts about every part and technology that you could ever need to know (and then some), Sutherland's: http://www.amazon.com/Sutherlands-7t...8182475&sr=8-2
