Editorial Reviews

"Compiled in part by Shelley “Chainbreaker” Jackson, this zine is a fantastic introduction to the wide wonderful world of bicycle mechanics for nervous novices who still can’t bring themselves to admit they can’t fix their own flats. Painstakingly illustrated, patiently informative, the Rough Guide is one zine you’re positively encouraged to make a mess of — while whipping your wheels into shape. Microcosm Publishing still has copies of the zine available plus copies of the later, even more comprehensive book (co-written by Jackson and Ethan Clark)."  —Nicole Gluckstern, Lime
