Product:Park Tool Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair, C Calvin Jones
Price as reviewed:£24.99
Just like their tools, this manual is costly, but if the quality of the advice matches up to our favourite blue spanners and Allen keys it’s a worthy investment. It didn’t disappoint.
The information is comprehensive and the photos, illustrated using Park’s products, naturally, are very informative.
It’s a very dry read though with no surplus jocular frivolity à la For Dummies – although the more experienced home mechanic may prefer that.
If you're serious enough about repairing your own bike to invest in Park Tool, then this is a handy guide to get the most from them.
