"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.

The remaining chapters are about tools and working on different aspects of the bike. These chapters take an approach different to what many readers will expect. This isn't the book to teach you from first principles how to work on your bike, but there's a lot to be gained if you have a base of experience and some tools of your own already.

* On the road which ccovers the daily rountine of prfessional mechanic, the behind the seen look tha gets little attention
* Hardware which talks you through tools used by professional
* The bike which covers a series of tips to maintain the key parts of the bike.
As to the binding, the book is of an irreproachable quality, the paper is thick, smooth and glossy (Rouleur finition). This book will be the perfect Christmas present for a cycling and mechanic enthusiast.
Spaß machen wird dieses Buch besonders denjenigen, die z. Bsp. wissen wollen wer und vor allem wann man lieber einen massigen statt einem Leichtbau-Sattel montieren sollte. Oder dass man z. Bsp. die neue Kette nach dem Auspacken entfettet, da der darauf befindliche Schmierstoff nur zur Lagerung angebracht wurde und man die Kette nach der Montage sachte schmiert.
Danke, ein tolles Werk!
