Bicycle Repair Book for Citizen Cyclists

Bicycle Repair
I spent New Year's in Montreal visiting friends and spent a great deal of time in great bookshops. I found this book in this cool second-hand bookshop and paid $7 for it. It is refreshing in that it's written in non-geek language and the photos in the book reflect regular citizens on bicycles. Definately cool as a gift for someone who is new to urban cycling if you can find a copy. (Thanks to Tom who informed us that it is available at AK PRESS)

I also saw a book on sale for $8.00 in the window. The guy in the shop said he had four other copies. It's a certain book written by a certain bicycle blogger. I am systematically and mercilessly waiting for a either a free copy or until the price drops to $5 in a few weeks.

don't knock the snob's book, it's well worth its full retail price, let alone eight bucks. even for European city cyclists like you and me.

I'm teasing, Klaus. Much like he often teases me... :-)

Thanks for the link, Tom
