    Comments about Park Tool BBB-3 The Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair:

    It what i needed to give myself a reference on some of the newer stuff out today. I was hoping it would have more rim building stuff in there as like how to lace a rim. but i guess that another book. This will help you a lot if you no nothing of bikes and can understand what you read. I got a maintinace schedule in there that helpd but i do that once a month there was some thing in this book i did not know about so it was helpfull there. I do ride everday 24 miles day. so this book would have been great if it came with more rim building tech. That is what i lose the most. I know a lot of people say look online but that not an option since im hearing imparied all it does is give me a picture basicly. If your new to riding get this book. if you need spec on torqure its got that was my seconds reason. and it give you the tool you need to do the specefic jo. so iu still it five star for that

      Comments about Park Tool BBB-3 The Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair:

      A great guide to help you get the most out of your bike. I bought this after I became a bit frustrated that the my LBS just couldn't seem to get my derailleurs performing to my satisfaction. I began wondering if I was going to need to upgrade my derailleurs but decided to first give this guide a shot. After following the guide and using a bit of patience my bike performs MUCH better. I also have used the guide to swap out cassettes, replace chains, adjust bearings, etc. I am now fearless when it comes to tuning, repairing or upgrading my bike. Get this book, a good workstand (Park PCS-10 is worth the $) a starter tool kit (Park SK-1) and take matters into your own hands!

      Wish I would have bought this book many years ago. Since it's written by park, I can trust their advice. Great overall general book for the home mechanic

        Comments about Park Tool BBB-3 The Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair:

        I ordered this book on a whim.
        Then, the bike shop I've been using for ten years closed its doors, right after installing a replacement cartridge bottom bracket in my road bike (Shimano, 5500), which immediately started showing signs of being defective.

        Rather than replacing with another 5500, I bit the bullet, and bought the tools an parts to upgrade to an external BB set.

        1) without tips in the book, I might not have been able to remove the 5500 BB.
        2) the book included torque specs, as well as detailed instructions to install the new BB and chainring (with crank arms).
