Good Overview 7 septembre 2012
Par Robin - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've not tried to use this book to guide me through any major repairs yet, so can't say how that would work out. It seems like it tries to be all things to all people. I'd like to see more specifics geared toward my hybrid, for example. I also sense that the author assumes too much expertise in the reader, maybe in an effort to not talk down to him/her. Exploded drawings/diagrams to complement the photos would make the repair explanations easier to understand. I'll give an example. Even after reading the explanation of chains and chain repairs several times, I still have no idea which type of chain my bike has, nor what type of chain tool to buy. I'd recommend this book as a general primer, but I'm still looking for something more detailed and more specific to my bike.

This is a very comprehensive and detailed manual, about serious levels of bike mechanics. It will help me understand what the shop is up to and how well they do their work even though I probably lack the motor skills and patience to do the procedures outlined in Daimeon Shanks' book.
The illustrations are top grade, clear and helpful. The section on truing a wheel clearly pointed out to me why I've failed at this task in the past and make me think I might even be able to do it now.
An index is almost a necessity in a manual like this, and the lack of one is a disappointment.
Overall, a nice book to have on hand.

Detailed and Thorough Bicycle Mechanics 16 juillet 2012
Par Nancy Mulvany - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This large format book shows readers how to keep their bikes in good repair. The book has thirteen chapters ranging from "Basic Maintenance" to "Shifters and Derailleurs." The text is well-written with plenty of photos that illustrate the task at hand. The author's instructions are clear, divided into steps, and he anticipates issues specific to certain bikes.

The layout of the book is inviting. The large pages allow for nice display of the text and the photos. The photos are black and white. Many are close-ups of various parts. Often the photo includes text that identifies specific elements.

Throughout the book are informative sidebars, such as "Emergency Chain Repairs" and "Packing a Bicycle." However, since the book has no index it may be difficult to locate the information.

Although the book is devoted to road bikes, cyclists with any type of bike will benefit from the tips offered in this book. There's a great section about putting together your own tool kit and setting up a workshop at home. The last chapter, "Achieving the Perfect Fit," is detailed and will certainly benefit all riders.

The book concludes with an Appendix: Choosing and Working with a Bike Shop followed by a handy glossary of terms. The publisher did not include an index which is inexcusable for a detailed, hands-on manual.

Essential Bicycle Maintenance & Repair will be a welcome addition to cyclists' bookshelves. At the very least this book will provide readers with the nitty-gritty details of what goes on when you take your bike into a shop for repairs.

Easy to Follow Maintenance 15 août 2012
Par P. Martin - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I got Essential Bicycle Maintenance & Repair in the hopes that it would be more accessible to a novice than the current maintenance manual that I was using. I had been riding a road bike off and on for about ten years, and then about four years ago I began to ride on a much more regular basis. Cycling is an expensive sport, and can become a very expensive sport. The more that a cyclist is able to repair on his own, the better it will be for his wallet. And if you like to cycle a lot, and simple do not want to wait for your bike to be fixed at the shop, it is nice to know how to make simple repairs. Also, it is good to know how a bike works, and essential to know how to make simple road side repairs such as flat tires and using barrel adjustments.
Overall I have to say that I am very pleased with this manual. I did not review that entire manual. Instead I focused on the maintenance that I often perform and therefore more familiar. Already I have found the manual very helpful. One of the aspects of bike maintenance that has been a thorn in my side is front derailleur adjustments. I often take off my cranks in order to clean them or the bottom bracket. And, very often, when I put the cranks back on the derailleur does not work correctly. This is because that chain rings are not in the same position as when it was originally adjusted. This problem can be easily adjusted with the barrel adjustment. It is an obvious and simple fix, but for some reason I had never thought of it until I read this manual. Another example is that for years I have wondered about the little screw on top of my brakes. It turns out that it is to center the brakes on the rim.
What I like most about the manual is that it is not overly technical--it is written in a manner in which novices can understand. Yet, I did have some issues with the manual. First, it is not complete; it seems to be geared toward bikes with the newest technologies. Case in point, the section that covers the maintenance of bottom brackets does not cover the type of bottom bracket that my bike uses. This may have been because it is older and not on many of the newer bikes, or that it is very simple type of bottom bracket that is fairly simple to perform maintenance. Another issue that I had with the book is that some of the pictures that are provided are often inadequate. They are in black and white, and do not provide very good visuals. I also, being a visual learning, would have like to have seen a bit more pictures. But, overall I would recommend this book to other cyclist seeking a good manual to help them learn to fix their bike.

Highly Recommended 8 novembre 2012
Par Karen K. Schloss - Publié sur
Format: Broché
by Eric T. Schmidt

For an individual looking to become a bicyclist, this book is a very informational guide to have around. As a son of a bike shop co-owner, and an active cyclist, I can say I even learned some facts and information about my own bikes. The amount of information is far beyond what I have expected. After reading the preface I began to wonder, who is this book intended for?
My initial answer to that question was someone looking to be a professional cyclist. After all, the author is talking about extreme cycling as a competitive sport, and not a hobby. But when the text came down to facts, how to's, and my favorite "what these things are and what they do", all the information was there that anyone from a simple mountain or road bike owner, to a touring bike competitive rider could use and understand. After getting to all this information, I decided that this book, and many like it, is in fact an essential tool to owning a bike no matter how you use it. Not everyone has a dad with a bike shop and skills to teach you how to make repairs yourself.
I would give this book high a recommendation for anyone wanting to take on the hobby of bicycling, and to any current bike owners wanted to make the most out of their biking experience. With a few glances to the included glossary for help, any cyclist can improve the functions on his or her's bike. I could say this book gave me better understanding of my own bikes, and will possibly reduce the number of trips they go back to my dad's for repair.
