Reviews - What do customers think about Zinn's Cycling Primer: Maintenance Tips and Skill Building for Cyclists?

A must for the tool box library  Feb 22, 2008
Zinn's "Road Bike Maintenance" is a handy guide to maintaining any road bicycle. His experience in physiology, mechanics and science gives him a unique take on wrenching a bicycle. Very concise and detailed.
Great bicycle book for beginners and experts  Aug 11, 2004
Zinn's brand new book (2004) is must have in any bike enthusiast's library. Building on his excellent maintenance books, which go into every detail of fixing and tuning your bike, the cycling primer is abundant with tips and tricks to improve riding skills.
Ok, I ride a Zinn bike and might be biased but he is a competent author who used to race internationally and who explores unorthodox ways to cater for special needs of tall (and short) people. The book goes into great detail on how to properly fit a bike, tune it and a good overview on training techniques. I enjoyed reading it and will keep consulting it.
