About the book:
Lennard Zinn does it again, taking you through the basics and particulars of bicycle maintenance and skill building to refine your bike and body. Zinn evaluates different theories and procedures to offer you the best recommendations—all of which have been reviewed by the experts, including pros and their specialists. His recommendations are bound to improve your performance for road, mountain, and multisport cycling. Over 50 topics in all, with detailed photographs throughout.

The content focuses on:
· Initial setup including saddle height position, handlebar reach, cleat setup, crank length, frame fitting, stance width, and more.
· Fine-tuning your body to measure VO2 max, increase lactate threshold, and improve your economy and pedal stroke.
· Road and mountain bike maintenance, skills, hardware, and tuning.

Zinn suggests proven maintenance methods in an articulate way, but more importantly, he covers methods to avoid. You will know why to shy away from misguided methods. Each of Zinn’s recommendations have been developed and are endorsed by the experts—famous cyclists, mechanics and physicians such as Andrew Pruitt, Ed.D., Ugo DeRosa, John Cobb, Greg LeMond, and Lance Armstrong, to name a few. Road and mountain bike cyclists, as well as triathletes, will find themselves referring to this unique and valuable book several times over.
