Hi all - I am quite an experienced cyclist but only have basic knowledge of maintaining my bike.

Can anyone reccomend a Road Bike Maintenance book ?

One that is detailed, has decent photos etc

    If you don't want to buy a book then just use and it has most stuff in plain and simple steps

    Have a look at the video clips on here

    I also went on a course at the Edinburgh Bike Co-op. Cost £40 but you effectively get you bike serviced while you learn. I found it really useful having someone there who you could check with when you weren't sure.
