Does anyone have a recommendation for a good repair and tune up manual? Something heavy on road or hybrids?

Thank you, but I want a book, not a website. Something that I can get dirty and greasy in my garage.

There hasn't been a book for several decades. The business case is not there for a book with all the information freely available on the internet. From time to time, I print selected pages of Sheldon's material to be able to take it away from my computer.

Shimano's Tech Docs are another source of specific information. They are the same as the page(s) included in the box.

Look on Amazon, dozens of books available. Several decades? Really? 70 or so years and no books? Dude, please stop wasting my time with comments completely irrelevant to my request.

Park Tools Big Blue Book - recent vintage, as has 11 speed info. Google it.

You don't need something "heavy on roads or hybrids" as they have nothing unique.

Bob, will it be an e-book, at least initially? Smile

Hi
I can highly recommend the Park Tools Big Blue Book version 3, it is very in depth and covers all aspects of repairs.

I have Lennard Zinn's book. Have yet to not find an answer in there.
He doesn't like some, say "Too many variations to list here"
