About this title:

Synopsis:

Bike Mechanic is a behind the scenes documentary on how far professional road bike mechanics have to go to keep their riders fast, and more importantly, safe. Being a mechanic is a hard and thankless job, far away from the glamour of the podium, but these essential members of the team are always the first up in the morning and the last to go to bed at night - the roadies of the bicycle world. The authors have followed several key professional teams over the past few years and have amassed a collection of wonderful images and experiences of life on the road. Also included is a section of tricks of the trade on bike building and set-up, complete with interviews, techniques and secrets from professional mechanics, plus: * what to expect during a day at a professional race like the Tour de France or Giro d'Italia * what goes on inside a pro-team's garage * what tools and spares the best mechanics use * how to set-up a professional workshop.

From the Back Cover:

The bicycle workshop is a magical place, filled with the heady smell of fresh rubber and the gleam of hand tools. The craft?s highest expression, however, is found on the racing circuit, where the mechanics of the World Tour work late into the night to keep the bikes of cycling?s superstars spinning flawlessly. Bike Mechanic takes readers behind the scenes to reveal how it?s done.

Bike Mechanic will show you precisely how to set up your bike while entertaining you with true stories from the back of the truck at the spring classics, the Tour de France, and the service course.
