Sloane's Complete Book of Bicycling: The Cyclist's Bible is the first step many of us took onto the Planet Bike.
Author Eugene Sloane is the author of many books on cycling, many of them related to how to fix and enjoy riding the bike.
His work though is not just a series of diagrams with how-to advice; it is always sprinkled through with anecdotes to make it a good read.
This work will keep you on the road. It has plenty of gearing tables, sizing recommendations, and detail galore to keep any bike geek happy.
A must read.
