Nobody teaches these skills better than the famous artiste "Leonardo da Zinnski." --Ned Overend, World and National Mountain Bike Champion"Lennard Zinn is an institution in the bicycle world--a legend. Legions of cyclists have learned to repair bikes from him, ridden bicycles he's built, or used his advice as guidance on how to better enjoy the world on two wheels." -- Bicycle Times magazine"Regardless of your skill level, this book is a great manual to have on hand.

It doesn't spend all of its 464 pages going over installation and maintenance procedures; there are also a lot of useful tips and tricks." -- Adventure Cycling magazine"Zinn is very good at taking you incrementally through the learning process--whether you are a beginner or expert mechanic." -- Out There Monthly magazine"This book almost rates along with those 'missing manuals' that exist for computer software.

It's a great addition to any new biker's library but offers invaluable advice for experts, too." -- Sports Guide magazine"This 5th edition contains detai
