Barnetts was designed really as a reference manual for professional mechanics, and is written assuming a much higher level of initial competence.

Zinn's book is great for people who are just learning, or need to do basic repairs, but it doesn't say anything that a professional mechanic doesn't already know.
so, Barnett's is elitist, huh? :-) nmDougSloan

pretty easy to follow and if it isn't there i either dont have the right tools or i should probably let my LBS take care of it anyway.
