Don't get stuck with your mountain bike! This clearly written and fully illustrated manual shows how to fix your bike at home or on the trail. I bought this book at the bike shop when I got my first mountain bike. Since then I have constantly had the shifting/derailleur system fail.
Don't get stuck with your mountain bike! This clearly written and fully illustrated manual shows how to fix your bike at home or on the trail. Easy to follow step-by-step instructions. Each time I have tried to use this book to solve the problem, I manage to make it just better than horrible, but not good enough, and end up bringing it to a bike shop for a professional tune-up. There are plenty of pictures but overall it has been worthless.
