Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bike Mechanic offers an unusual point of view. It's a joint venture between VeloPress and Rouleur so as always the publication is of very high quality and many of the photos approach art. With the cycling season coming to an end for many of us, this is an excellent read for dark winter evenings, fun to just browse through, and would be a fine gift for any cyclist, even one with or without a workstand."  -- PezCyclingnews.com

"Bike Mechanic includes about 150 pages of workshop and tool porn" ¦While it is not strictly a how-to guide, Guy covers the essential tools of bike maintenance. Everything from tire repair to the most beautifully illustrated guide to cutting steerer tubes that I've seen are covered in the repair basics."  -- Cyclelicio.us

"A mix of clear how-to and entertaining storytelling from the guys who keep the Pro Tour riders rolling."  -- Sanjay Gupta for Triathlete magazine

From the Back Cover

The bicycle workshop is a magical place, filled with the heady smell of fresh rubber and the gleam of hand tools. The craft's highest expression, however, is found on the racing circuit, where the mechanics of the World Tour work late into the night to keep the bikes of cycling's superstars spinning flawlessly. Bike Mechanic takes readers behind the scenes to reveal how it's done.

Bike Mechanic will show you precisely how to set up your bike while entertaining you with true stories from the back of the truck at the spring classics, the Tour de France, and the service course.
