Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The world of bicycling technology has grown and changed a lot in the last few years as mountain bikes have taken over a larger share of the market. This update of an earlier guide (Rodale Pr., 1990) will help bike owners do some of their own repairs. Even for those who don't want to tackle the large and complicated jobs, the book is valuable for its explanation of smaller jobs such as tire changing and seasonal tuneups. The new material is especially worthwhile, particularly in the sections on mountain bikes and shock absorption systems. The charts, drawings, and photos are matched to the text and should prove useful. With its clear, easy-to-follow instructions, this is a good choice for libraries that need to update their bicycle collections.-Lisa J. Cochenet, Winfield P.L., Ill.
Booknews
Applicable to 10- and 12-speed, juvenile, 3-speed, and all-terrain bikes, this guide explains the procedures for ordinary and not-so- ordinary maintenance and repair, including recent innovations such as index shifting and clipless pedals. The great exploded photographs are themselves worth the purchase. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
