    Default bike maintenance handbook

    I'm looking for a very well illustrated bike maintenance and repair book.
    Moving to Zim so will need to do all my own services etc. on our MTB's

    Any suggestions what book to look for or if anyone has one that they want to dispose of?

    I found Youtube more useful than any handbook could be. The main reason is you can see how your specific component is fixed/ serviced. By way of an example, not all hubs are the same and it is important to know how your specific component works.

    Your biggest struggle will probably be finding the right tools for the job.

    Try get hold of the Park Tool ‘Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair’...

    Park Tool also has a very nice set of videos on youtube, and detail on their site.
