Working at the cutting edge of bicycle technology, Tour mechanics expertly maintain high performance race bikes every day throughout the Tour. The highlight, for many fans, is watching the bikes being prepared before a stage and serviced after it. The reader is put in the fans' shoes, with exclusive insights and images from the life of a Tour mechanic, with in-race stories and technical advice. Practical sections in each chapter show the home mechanic how to perform essential maintenance tasks and personalise their own bicycles to Tour de France standards. Even if bikes are serviced by shop mechanics, vital checks and regular adjustments are covered in these pages and, to make a bike stand out, there are professional tricks of the trade as well as the small but telling detailing jobs to enhance the bike's looks. Another feature of The Official Tour de France Bike Maintenance Book focuses on the growing interest in classic racing machines, which are collected, ridden and displayed in 'Eroica' festivals, events celebrating the heroic age of cycling. These, of course, include Tour de France bikes from the past 75 years and there are features on these classic bikes, with maintenance tips using traditional tools and techniques.

Since its introduction in 1998, the water-cooled Porsche 911 has earned a reputation as one of the world's greatest sports cars--equal to, if not better than, the legendary air-cooled 911 it replaced. The 911 is a true driver's car, and it offers its greatest driving rewards when properly maintained, tuned, and modified.

But you can literally save thousands of dollars in mechanic's costs simply by performing some of the work yourself. With "101 Projects for Your Porsche 911 996 and 997 1998-2008," written by renowned Porsche author Wayne Dempsey, you'll be able to get into the garage and work on your 911 with confidence. Created with the weekend mechanic in mind, this highly illustrated Motorbooks Workshop title offers 101 step-by-step projects designed to help you maintain, modify, and improve your late-model 911. Focusing on the water-cooled 996 and 997 models, this book presents all the necessary knowledge, associated costs, and pitfalls to avoid when performing an expansive array of projects. And besides the savings, when you personally complete a job on your Porsche, you get the added satisfaction of having done it yourself.
