Cycling Weekly Verdict

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.

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.
