For example how to remove your pedal from the bike. Anyway love it. If yu looking for road bike book than this is the bike's bible for you .
- En el principio del libro te aparecen las herramientas necesarias para según que arreglos. Esto es de mucha ayuda para los que se inician en el mundo de la mecánica de bicicletas en general.
- Procedimientos bien explicados
- Bastante completo.
- Esta en inglés, por lo que algunas cosas son difíciles de entender si este no es tu lengua materna, como es mi caso. Sin embargo, con un poco más de paciencia, todo se puede entender. A pesar de ello, no lo recomendaría si no tienes un buen nivel de inglés
Conclusión: Si tienes un buen nivel de inglés y ganas de aprende como mantener tu bicicleta y su mecánica, este es tu libro, sin duda.
Tengo otro libro sobre el mantenimiento de bicicletas que viene con unas explicaciones cortas y muchas fotos - este es el inverso, no hay fotos, muchos diagramas que a veces no son muy claros, y muchísimo texto.
Hay que leer cada sección muy bien antes de ponerte a trabajar, porque sin fotos para guiarte hay que hacer una imagen mental muy completa antes de poner manos a la obra - ah, y claro, está todo en inglés, así que si no dominas este idioma, olvídate.

***TIP for specific instructions for bike parts: most manufactures will post up online detailed technical specifications for each part and some will even post a parts breakdown document as well.
Many of my opinions are also formed based upon my maintenance use and owner ship of the Park Tool Big Blue Book 2nd Edition (which should be the current edition). Hands down, this book is much better than the Park Tools book, for it is much more detailed in many areas that the Park Tools book lacks. This book covers most of the popular designs and manufactures (e.g. different shifting systems including campagnolo, shimano, and sram). It also details the differences between the companies as well on certain parts that need attention because of the unique design by the company. The book does a great job at sorting the different repair tasks by three different levels, which most takes I feel are generally level 2. Not only that, it also gives an overview of different type of maintenance tool sets one should have from level 1, the basic level tool kit for the beginner, to level 3 + tools that a shop should own. Zinn also explains each of the parts for every kit level as well. I feel they do a pretty good job overall on giving a easy to follow guideline as to what common tools are needed for each of the different levels of repair difficulties.
For the new bike maintenance person, this book provides a comprehensive view of what it takes to wrench on a road bike (which I believe just about everyone can manage (if they proceed carefully and slowly). Also, the writing style is extremely simple to follow and believe or not written in an encouraging manner that it makes a person feel they can repair anything on their road bike.
This book does not give advise onto which brands to get for all the tools (although they do have some recommendations for certain tools interspersed throughout the book). But it gives enough advise to pretty much get most things and help guide a person onto which tools to look for and which ones may be avoided.
This is a great book for those who do not have an all-in-one reference book. It is cheap and affordable and definitely worth the small amount you pay for it. I don't know right now if it is offered as a digital book, but if it ever does, I'd personally continue to pick up the paper version, since having a physical book in the workshop is much better than digital!
Each edition is thoroughly rewritten and updated, so it keeps me up to date. Lennard is a guru and for all the right reasons.
Best of all, this book serves absolute beginners as well as experts. He has an easy writing style that makes this an (almost) can't-put-down book. Once you start reading, you do want to keep going. I've read it cover to cover about three times and gotten information each pass. It's a MUST for any mechanic's bookshelf.
I literally built my first bike, from scratch, just by reading his first edition. I didn't know a darned thing about bikes (literally, I didn't know ANYTHING about bike repairs), but by following closely, I build up a Felt 10x2 that was an amazing ride, all from parts I ordered off eBay by knowing the size I needed because Lennard TOLD me what I needed. It was an amazing experience, and I've built probably 30 more for friends since that first Felt.
I own the previous editions, and each is better than the previous one. That's rare in my opinion. Buy this; it's a must read for the bike enthusiast who wants to wrench himself. And if you don't know a derailleur from a screwdriver, don't worry: Lennard explains the difference.
