Postby MichaelB » Wed Apr 04, 2007 3:51 pm

Was browsing around the web trying to find some data for resistance training to augment cycling, and found this u beaut link at the Dean Woods web store. You can click on each of the links and it opens to the text.

It covers areas such as bike maintenance, wardrobe, equipment, bike fit setup, road & track racing tips, alternatives to cycling, body maintenance, physiology & psychology, training, race prep and a quick discussion of the Great races of the world.

There is buckets of info and its all free !!

Dean Woods manual of Cycling

Cheers

No probs Shaun.

Interesting that the guide mentioned using diesel oil (I presume he means diesel fuel) as a cleaning agent !!

Haven't had a good read yet, but will do so today during lunch.

I use diesel too (well, as a cleaner for mucky bits when I'm rebuilding old bikes). I started because it was all I had, and I haven't had any reason to change.

Diesel is kinder on rubber components ... but there aren't many of them in a push bike drive train. It's also safer than kero and that might be why it was suggested. Like kero, it leaves a coating when it evaporates which helps prevent corosion. Petrol is dangerous to use and evaporates completely which is why it's not such a good choice.
