    haynes manual is pretty good...sure there are others, I hear the Park tool website is good, never used it myself.

    someone posted this link before, helped me sort my gears out


    Book wise I've got "road bike maintenance" by Guy Andrews, lots of colour photos for the 3 big brands and it's spiral bound to folds flat when your working with it. Picked it up in Waterstones for £15.

    That clip is mint! I've never really fancied mucking around with my gears for fear of totally knackering them, but I just might have a go (on my MTB) one day soon.

    I have the park tool manual myself find it clear and to the point.

    The youtube clip is brilliant. Bought my bike second hand last year and on some, if not most of the gears I have to double click the lever to get it to change. I am now going to have a look at the gears over the weekend and see if this resolves it.
