Zinn And The Art of Road Bike Maintenance Books

And The Art of Road Bike Maintenance

From simple, routine maintenance to more complicated tasks, Zinn remains "convinced that anyone with an opposable thumb can perform any repair on a bike." He begins with "Basic Stuff" such as pre-ride inspections and cleaning the drive train, and continues on through the super-advanced task of wheel building--arguing that "the construction of a good set of bicycle wheels is actually a straightforward task."

Strength:

Contains everything on how to fix a bike including modern devices like electronic shifting and disc brakes.

Weakness:

Needs to be made into a 3-ring binder to lay the pages flat.

I bought this to replace my outdated "Complete Guide to Bicycle Maintenance" by Jim Langley. I still kept that book in case I came across a bike with threaded headsets and cone n' cup bearings, but for practical purposes Zinn's book is the desirable source. This book is very detailed and goes through step-by-step repair of anything and everything, and it will even instruct you on how to maintain road disc brakes and Di2 shifting.
