    Andrews' Mountain Bike Maintenance is too basic and not well organized.

    Although very well illustrated, I found several procedures confusing or not well explained. Adjusting derailleurs is given short shrift. The section on chain cleaning contains no reference to chain lubrication, and vice versa, which are procedures the pros always do in sequence. Intermittently the book jumps forward to some advanced topics, such as bottom bracket servicing, which may not be appropriate in a book that is much more maintenance rather than repair oriented.

    For those with little previous mechanical knowledge, this book may be of some value for lessons in fixing a flat or repairing a chain. Others looking for more advanced repair and maintenance skills should consult other volumes.
