Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“This book is a double treasure. It aims at empowering and teaching readers to do their own repairs and save money. The emphasis is on ordinary bikes and not on high-end road bikes.”  —Terry Lowe, Momentum Magazine

"The perfect intro for someone who's getting into bicycling and wants to learn more about their bike."  —Make Magazine

“The folks that put out the helpful, clear, beautiful guide Chainbreaker, that really liberates bikers from bike repair people, are American heroes.”  —Roctober

"Not only a great roughguide to bycicle maintenance, but is also a nice effort to recuperate and share part of the culture that disasters, like hurricane Katrina in this case, threaten to destroy."  —Disaster Bound
