Found a great book on one of my first loves, bicycle mechanics. This book is born out of the dirty grease and muck that bicycle mechanics live in daily. He discusses the basics like Wheel Wopping, how to repair carbon fiber with Epoxy and DuctTape, overhauls and a lots more.
This handbook contrasts nicely with How To Keep Your Volkwagen Alive in that it has a distinct new millenium edge. How to Rock and Roll is born from a history of urban cyclists and bike messengers getting even rather than John Muir's idealism and freewheeling attitude.
On the subject of bicycle mechanics, it looks like mquin has a great frame on his hands. Nothing like a bike project to make a guy feel good.
