Can anyone recommend a good book for someone with "advanced" bike tuning skills. I would like to
learn how to clean my bearings, also how to tighten spokes.

Oh, and is there places online that you can order things like ... a new derailer or bike chain...
(shimano...) ... Cheap and Canadian funds pref....

I'm new thanks. Pro_Logic
