Zinn & the Art of Road Bike Maintenance
Road bikes are surprisingly complex machines, but there's no need to spend excessive amounts on repairs and maintenance. The cost of a copy of "Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance" should be sufficient in most cases. This well-organized and -illustrated guide, which incorporates the latest in component technology and innovations, shows how to maintain every part of a road bike. This includes chains, derailleurs, shifters, wheels, brakes, cranks, bottom brackets, pedals, saddles, seatposts, handlebars, stems, headsets, forks, and frames -- all covered in Lennard Zinn's trademark clear and concise prose. Novices and seasoned mechanics alike can benefit from the clear illustrations, exploded views of how components go together, and practical tips on how to completely and properly maintain all aspects of their road bikes to ensure hours of trouble-free riding. Zinn shows exactly when to tackle a maintenance project and when a trip to the bike shop for repair is unavoidable.
Lennard Zinn is a cycling god. Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance is revered as a bible among the fat-tire set; he now extends the gospel to the rest of the cycling faithful in Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance.
From simple, routine maintenance to more complicated tasks, Zinn remains "convinced that anyone with an opposable thumb can perform any repair on a bike." He begins with "Basic Stuff" such as pre-ride inspections and cleaning the drive train, and continues on through the super-advanced task of wheel building--arguing that "the construction of a good set of bicycle wheels is actually a straightforward task." Zinn guides readers step by step through every possible repair on every possible part, handlebar grips to Maric Mektronic electronic shifting, with plain-speaking text and helpful illustrations. There's even a section on emergency repairs, including unexpected advice such as straightening a bent rim by hitting it against the ground: "You may be surprised how straight you can get a wheel this way."
This comprehensive manual is essential reading for those who love their bike. "All you have to do is follow the instructions and trust yourself." Indeed. --M. Stein
Christmas crushing marks end road for illegal bikes 11Dec09
Parents are being given a stark warning – buy illegal off road bikes as Christmas presents and they will be confiscated and crushed. Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Police held a bike crushing event as part of the Keep Christmas Happy Campaign. The campaign is a joint initiative between the council, police and NHS and aims to give people the information they need to keep themselves and their property safe during the festive period. The bike crushing was planned to drive home the message that there are no public places in Manchester where off road bikes can be ridden legally and if they are ridden illegally they will be confiscated and crushed. Residents’ surveys regularly raise the issue of the noise and nuisance of illegal off-road bikes. The City Council and Greater Manchester Police have joined forces with residents to rid the streets of illegally ridden go-peds, mini motos and quad bikes and they’re stepping up their campaign in the run up to Christmas. Around 20 bikes, which have been confiscated by police in the Wythenshawe and Northenden areas, were crushed at Tesco in Baguley on Friday 11 December. Manchester City Council's lead member for youth issues, Councillor Sue Murphy said: “These bikes are noisy, disruptive and dangerous. Together with the police, we are working to get them off the streets and open spaces of Manchester and we would urge parents not to buy them as Christmas presents." Inspector Debbie Robson from the Northenden Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “I want to reassure members of the public that police take off-road bikes seriously and that action will be taken against anyone flouting the law or putting their lives or others at risk by riding them dangerously. “Residents have told us that they want us to tackle this type of behaviour as a priority and I hope that the bike crushing exercise proves that the actions of those who misuse off road bikes will not be tolerated.”

I just bought this bike from a cool guy on craigslist. It's a 10-speed from the 70's, so the frame is steel. He actually did custom work on the handlebars to make them curve up. He also liked the rear hub so much that he got a new rim and respoked the whole thing. Paddle shifters too.
