well this might be a long shot, but does this exist? a book about maintenance/swapping/installation/cleaning track and fixed gear bikes? there was a thread before about a specific book that got me thinking that if this existed i could save a whole lotta dough on lbs work. or if not, is there an alternative to buying a normal bike maintenance book and having to weed through and interpret with a track mindset?
I don't know where you live, but if there are a lot of used book stores check 'em out. When I was in Chicago, I would always check the used book shops for bike repair books and I found at least one at every book store. The ones with diagrams are always nice.

Yeah, just regular maintenance? Oil your chain, check the tension, and make sure its not stretched. Make sure the tires have air. Wipe the bike down after riding in wet conditions.
Anything more advanced than that is most likely repair, not maintenance - pulling a BB, checking your wheel bearings - all the same as a regular bike.
Of course, this doesn't really answer the question originally posed, persay. But it might be somewhat hard to find a book on bicycle repair and maintenance that is track-bike specific.
