Why We Love It
Zinn's friendly step-by-step guide explains the tools you'll need and how to know you've done the job right. The two-color interior is easy to read—even in a dimly-lit garage or workshop. Hundreds of hand-drawn illustrations and exploded parts diagrams show just the right level of detail to lead you through every bicycle repair task.
Where We Use It
At camp, traveling, or anywhere you can curl up with a good book.
Each new edition of Zinn & the Art of Road Bike Maintenance bumps up against the problem of space limitations. The 5th edition was a particular challenge; it is Lennard's most comprehensive and complete yet, but a few procedures and descriptions that were included in the 4th Edition do not appear in the 5th Edition. Lennard and the book's editors felt the audience for this material was too limited to carry forward into the fifth and later editions of the printed book, but that it might still have some limited use for some readers.
