I am looking for something that covers bicycle maintance. I'm not mechanically inclined but I am new to this sport. Another post recommended a Zinn's book, something like this.

Any options or other recommendations?

Thanks!

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.

Cheers,
Ari

Have looked thru every book the local library and the local Borders has on the topic and this is best by far.
