Andrew M asked the question in Bike Maintenance

What book should I buy to learn about bike maintenance?

After years of neglect, I've started trying to care for my bike a bit better.  The first step was to get some new wheels (http://tribesports.com/products/cycling/bike-components-bike-parts/bike-wheels-rims-hubs/wheels/road-bike-wheels/2458281-shimano-r500-wheels), as the old ones were so warped after not fixing broken spokes fast enough.  @arnaud very kindly helped me select the wheels, and has offered to help me fit them.  I do, however, want to learn about this sort of thing myself.  I now understand a bit about 700C, clincher, etc, but I'd like to know more.  Can anyone recommend a good book, or even website, to learn?

yes me too; suspect the park tools one is probably worth it as well.
