Bike reference manual.

I'm looking for recommendations on a good bike book. I'm considering building-up my first road bike and will need a good reference manual. The questions that I am usually looking for answers to are things like:
Is this compatible with that?, What size tires rims can I use with this groupo, or frame? TIA

My personal favorites for anything bike related are:

They'll answer everyhting except, "what size tires rims can I use with this frame?" For that you need a tape measure or an e-mail to the frame manufacturer.
