CAVEATS: --I was disappointed that aerodynamic research done with Lance and Steve Hed etc. were not included. --For practical advice on training, nutrition, aerodynamics advantage of certains pieces of gear, seat height, etc., I recommend ED Burke's books, such as 'Serious Cycling', 'High Tech Cycling', etc. --For specific training plans I recommend Chris Carmichael's books. --For repairs, I recommend the books from Park Tools, and Barnett. --A collection of Gene Sloan's repair books not only gives great advice, but also lets you see how various components have evolved over the last 20+ years.
Still, an entertaining book for those of use who wonder about the affects of bearing friction, mechanical loads, etc. and the affect it may have on our riding.
