    I am getting a new road bike and want to try to do most of the maintenance myself instead of always having to go to the LBS. Does anyone have any suggestions for good books? Beginner level would be best.

    I'm based in the UK and got a great one last week. I use this computer at work so will check the title tonight and get back to you tomorrow. Where do you live?

    Thanks for the help. I'm in the U.S., but I should be able to find just about any book online.

    be prepared to spend some money for tools. if you can afford it, buy only quality tools.

    Thanks for the updates guys. After reading a couple of reviews I came to the same book. I just ordered it on Amazon ($13.71).:cool:
