Chainbreaker Bike Book: An Illustrated Manual of Radical Bicycle Maintenance, Culture, & History
by Ethan Clark and Shelley Lynn Jackson
A hand-illustrated and accessible introduction to the world of bike repair! Through working at both Plan B Bike Project and French Quarter Bicycles in New Orleans, our co-authors have gathered a wealth of experience to share with would-be bicycle mechanics. The first half of this book is a complete repair manual to get you started on choosing, fixing, and riding your bike. The second half reprints all four issues of Chainbreaker zine, whose originals were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina.
This is the best bicycle repair manual that we have, and the one many of us here at Microcosm use to fix our bikes. It's really good for fixing older bikes, and the illustrated instructions help you suss out how to fix a wide variety of issues whatever kind of bike you have, whether it's a beater or a vintage classic.
