The Ultimate Guide to Bike Maintenance and Upgrades, Guy Andrews & Stuart Clapp


Price as reviewed:

This product is featured in: Bicycle maintenance books: Seven of the best.

This little book represents great value and is surprisingly detailed.

Its magazine-like format is full of useful extra titbits of information alongside the main text and the step-by-step photos are clear and very helpful.

There’s plenty of recognition of various standards by manufacturers too, with instructions for each.


With an impressive name drop, the book is foreworded by Geraint Thomas. Cheap, useful and pretty comprehensive. No index in the back is a hell of an oversight in a quick reference guide, though.
