Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This follow-up to the authors' beautiful Richards' Ultimate Bicycle Book ( LJ 4/1/92) has the same visual impact. Not for those with no familiarity with bicycles or tools, it can be used to great advantage as a quick reference by those with some prior knowledge. Repairs are divided into chapters covering brakes, wheels and tires, transmissions, bearings, and routine maintenance chores. The explanations for mechanical processes are excellent, with many sections employing photographs or illustrations to detail the repair steps. Although it is not as detailed as Tom Cuthbertson's Anybody's Bike Book (Peter Smith Pubs., 1988), the working photos and illustrations are much better. In fact, these two books can serve most libraries' needs for bicycle repair guides.-- Lisa J. Cochenet, Winfield P.L., Ill.
School Library Journal
YA-A well-illustrated guide for the repair and maintenance of all types of bicycles, with understandable instructions, including monthly and annual service guides, emergency repairs, and a trouble-shooting chart.

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.
