These are the four library owned books I've found best for mountain bike maintenance, ordered in increasing order of complexity; i.e. the first in the list is a good one for beginners who want to start doing some of their own routine maintenance; the books after that are better for intermediate and experts who want to do more complicated procedures, like updating to newer drive train or wheel components and wheel building.
