Zinn and the Art of MTB Maintenance

After acquiring our first two steeds, I decided to maintain them properly myself rather than pay a local bike shop to do it badly. Now whilst I'm quite handy with a spanner it's often advisible to have an understanding of the process so that you don't make a mess of it and damage any components. That's the main reason why I invested in this maintenance book, which has plenty of complimentary reviews.

It's well written, clear, contains exploded diagrams to aide the process and covers all aspects of MTB ownership, right down to wheel building. It's frequently updated and re-released as the technology of our fab sport evolves, so you're advised to acquire the lastest edition. I highly recommend it.
