Mountain Bike Emergency Repair

By: Tim Toyoshima

As Toyoshima notes, the critical thing about bicycle repair, especially on the road, is that it usually requires performing a specific repair before seeing it successfully done by someone else. The mechanical procedures involved aren't especially daunting, so the trick is knowing the drill in advance. To that end, Toyoshima's peppy volume is a valuable means. It's a Joe Friday^-style ("just the facts" ) guide enlivened by just enough verbal style to be entertaining. Toyoshima doesn't tell any bicycle adventure stories; he just outlines common mountain bike malfunctions and the quickest, most effective means of repairing them by running through various situations and typical problems, their diagnoses, and their solutions and the necessary tools. When it comes to mountain biking, read a vacation guide for trails and accommodations and Toyoshima for packing your tool kit.
