Zinn's other book, "Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance," is the classic, comprehensive guide to maintenance and repair. I bought it as a newbie, when I didn't even know how to change a tube, and have found it immensely useful. It covers everything from the the most basic topics to advanced subjects, such as wheelbuilding. The hand-drawn illustrations, in particular, are fantastic -- surprisingly clearer and easier to follow than photographs.
