/ Recommend me a bike maintenance book?
decided to get into DIY mountain bike repair and maintenance, and this week seems the perfect time to start. Looking for something that includes hydraulic brakes and shocks etc as well.
They have an app?
Agree the parktool website or the park tool big blue book.
The Sheldon Brown website is also an excellent source of knowledge on all things cycling related
Zinn & the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance
It's great, it breaks each part of the bike down and let you know how to repair etc. really useful if out and about too :)
Fans of Zinn: y'reckon that'll cover hydraulics?
can check what is in the book when i get home it no one else replies before then
slight problem checking what book say, cant find my copy sorry :(

When you say 'Hydraulics' I assume you are talking of brakes, rather than suspension?
