Top Customer Reviews
Kevin doesn't take the approach, "for this bike, use these components and settings." Instead, he uses thorough explanations to educate the reader about how and why things work. Then the reader can choose performance modifications that match his riding style, pocketbook and maintenance tolerance. Throughout the book he encourages the reader to be realistic about his expectations and to match the mechanical changes with improvements to his riding ability.
With the information in this book you'll be able to make your bike exactly the way you want it, and more importantly understand how and why you made it that way.
This is the book we all hoped Kevin would write someday...
