The Chainbreaker Bike Book: A Rough Guide to Bicycle Maintenance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's a hand-illustrated and accesible 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 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.

Review:

"Shelley is enthusiastic about all aspects of bike culture. Her writing is packed with personal stories, advice, and historical information on bikes. A great read for anyone who is into bikes or wants to learn more about today's DIY bike culture." -Sean Stewart, NEWPAGES, THOUGHTWORM ZINE

Synopsis:

Meant to be a friendly gateway into the world of fixing your not-so-brand-new commuter bike, this bicycle repair manual is hand illustrated and conversationally toned. It also reprints the original four issues of the Chainbreaker zines, whose masters were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina flooding.
