Chris Sidwells combines succinct informative text with detailed photographs to provide an extensive primer on bikes, their maintenance, and repair. I highly recommend this resource, especially for new cyclists who want to know more about caring for their two-wheeled investment.
the book is very descriptive but the book is still easy to understand, it has all of the info you will need to maintain your bike.
