Chainbreaker Bike Book: An Illustrated Manual of Radical Bicycle Maintenance, Culture & History

Shelley Jackson, Ethan Clark

I love the seat-of-the-pants, low-budget guidance offered in The Chainbreaker Bike Book, a new do-it-yourself bike maintenance guide that keeps things simple, straightforward, and, most importantly, real. - Utne Reader This bike repair manual doesn’t just show how to ix things; it provides a lot of encouragement and inspiration as well. Shelley gives several pep talks to women throughout the book, cheering us on to ‘stand up and be heard…get to know the tools and language…ask questions and look for guidance, but look to your own sense of logic as well.’ That’s good advice, not just for bike repair, but for everything we do in life. - Feminist Review An updated edition of our hand-illustrated and accessible introduction to the world of bike repair! Through working at both Plan B Bike Project and French Quarter Bicycles in New Orleans, our co-authors have gathered a wealth of experience to share with would-be bicycle mechanics. The first half of this book is a complete repair manual and bicycling guide. The second half reprints all four issues of Chainbreaker zine, whose originals were destroyed in Hurricane Katrina. Many of us here at Microcosm use this guide to fix our own bikes. The illustrated instructions help you suss out how to fix a wide variety of issues, whether your bike is a beater or a vintage classic
