Loads of valuable information for bike service. Good reference to have if you want to avoid spending piles of cash at the bike shop. Most projects are simple and straightforward. If special tools are needed, the book points you tward what you may need to purchase and/or if the shop is indeed the better way to go. Calvin can make anything look like a piece of cake!
