Synopsis

If you wince at the thought of a flat tire or dread the day you're faced with putting a chain back on its derailleur, this is your kind of repair book. The Roadside Guide to Bike Repairs is exactly what its name implies - an easy to use and easy to carry guide to repair problems that can suddenly confront any biker.


Clear, detailed drawings and simple instructions help you pinpoint your problem and show you how to solve it, step-by-step. There's a list of tools you should carry, a set of instruction on how to use them and discussion on how not to use them., the author even includes a section on catalogues and mail order suppliers that tells you how to get the best possible equipment for the least amount of money.


This is Dennis Coello's second book on biking with Ross Books. The first, Living on Two Wheels, takes you by the hand from the moment you start thinking about a bike and, just as a good friend might, explains everything you'll need to know about bikes and biking.
