Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
After purchasing a £2000 MTB it was a no-brainer to learn how to maintain it! bought tools and this book...its fairly simple to follow with great illustrations showing exploded views of the parts you work on, also has a guide to how advanced the job will be showing the level of tool kit you'll need...so you don't start a job you dont have the tools for. Really this book has been a great purchase, being a complete mechanical novice I probably would have damaged my bike without this lol!

As a beginner mountain biker I was keen to learn how to maintain my new bike myself and keep it going for longer. The book covers many aspects of maintenance and is suitable for beginners, as well as those with more experience. I have done some basic stuff and found it very handy. Not sure how I'll manage the more complicated bits as it could be tricky to follow the detailed instructions whilst actually doing the work. All in all a good buy tho and hopefully as my confidence grows I will use it more and more!
