General Note
Includes index.
At first glance, a bicycle appears to be a very simple machine. However, today's bicycles are complex, and for the person who is passionate about cycling, keeping a bicycle in peak operating condition is paramount to fully enjoying their sport.Idiot's Guides: Bike Repair and Maintenance features 400+ full-colour, step-by-step photographs. It will teach riders of all levels how to maintain and repair their own bikes for years of top performance and enjoyment. With coverage for both road and mountain bikes, readers will learn from seasoned technicians not only how to perform all of the most basic (yet essential) maintenance, but also how to perform common repairs on all areas of the bike including the frame, suspension, crank sets, derailleur, brakes, gears, pedals, shifters, and much more. Content also includes adding functional improvements to the bike, such as adding extra gears.
