    Just wondered what you all thought of this;


    I have good mech skills, used to be a car mechanic but would like a good reference book.

    I've got a copy, I think it's handy to have in the garage, unlike computer stuff, although YouTube is unbeatable because it provides moving images and can be more tailored to the exact kit that you're using.

    I'd say it's 'ok' but very generalised. I've learned more from this forum and YouTube.

    Me too. Had a handbook but it just didn't seem to be showing me what I wanted to see. Half an hour on YouTube and the odd google and I could actually watch people showing me what to do. The one thing I would say, if you are starting from scratch, it'll give you a good general understanding, to know your seat stay from your top tube etc.

    Any other recommended books out there? Just did a quick scan on Amazon and there are a quite few out there that look worthy contenders.

    Zinn and the art of "insert bike type " is my reference manual.
