    A good maintenance book, PLEASE!

    Gawdamn it but I'm getting sick and tired of my BB. Anyone know of a good book they learned from regarding which tools and how to use them for various things??? I know most stuff by actually doing it but the rear cogset and the BB are driving me nuts...Thanks a lot in advance
    My bed comforts my body. Sleep comforts my mind. The trail comforts my soul. And without a soul, what is a body anyway?

    Zinn and the art of bicycle maint

    Zinn's book is very good!
    Also check out the park tool site for tons of good info. www.parktool.com.
    I generally go to the parktool site or MikeT's faq (http://www.execulink.com/~dtierney/wmc/faq.htm) first, depending on internet access.

    I prefer the Park Tool site to Zinns book.
    While Zinns book is ok it is pretty general.
    Park's site is much more detailed and specific.

    Park's site and do a search for the Barnett's manual.

    http://www.bbinstitute.com/manual.htm

    On their site they have a few for download, and they keep changing them. I am sure someone out there has the full set.
    If you don't like my opinion, find someone's you do like...or even better create your own.
