His descriptions of the many repairs/component upgrades are very concise and easy to follow. Although there are very good illustrations, the step-by-step guide drawings don't illustrate every single detail. However, once you use the book to determine what work needs to be done, I know you can find videos or photo tutorials on making the complex repair which would have more detailed visuals as to what you're doing. This really applies to the more difficult work which has tons of small, moving parts. Mechanically-uninclined dummies like me need a lot of pictures and/or video for complex tasks like many of the repairs presented in the book. In that case I would use the book in conjunction with a step-by-step video or online guide. Reading about repairing a tire is one thing but reading about it AND watching a pro change one out quickly is ideal.
A perfect example of how I used the book is this... on a rental bike when in first (low) gear the bike just didn't sound right. From the relative safety of home, by spinning the crank I found the chain was scraping/hitting the front derailleur in that gear. Using the book as my guide I found the low-gear limit-screw adjustment screw and turned it a quarter of a turn clockwise. This was the perfect fix for an otherwise unpleasant riding experience. I can't believe the fine-tuning was that simple once I knew what to do!
I highly recommend this book to any triathlete even if they always have tune-ups and repair work done by the bike shop. There are safety tips, bike fitting strategies, troubleshooting charts, aero theories, and race day repair guides that are invaluable.
If you don't mind taking your bike to the shop for everything, then this isn't very necessary. If you want to do some of the work yourself, I would get this.
Great job on derailleur adjustments.
A good book to have in the old bike repair go bag of tricks.
