Recommend me a book.

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by typhoon, Apr 24, 2007.

  1. I'm after a no bull bike suspension theory/tuning book. Would prefer something that goes into great detail, not after a "Suspension for dummies" type book.

    Regards, Andrew.

  2. +1 i got no idea how to set up my syspemsion never looked into it some reading materail would go down nicely
  3. Yep. There is such a book. "The Racing Motorcycle" by John Bradley. Published by Broadland Leisure Publications
  4. "Motorcycle Tuning - Chassis" by John Robinson would have to be one of the better ones.

    I'm sure you could get it through the technical book shop in Melbourne (looks like the site is down).
  5. Technical bookshop has closed down. Gone belly up
  6. Wow! I used to enjoy it, they'd only (relatively) recently moved to their new premises.

    Perhaps they should have sold cheaper books (they did stock a shedload of expensive, specialised refernce texts).

    Amazon/online sales would have contributed to killing it maybe.
  7. they moved because they wanted to have a half-booksop, half classic vehicle showroom. It was an ace idea. Sady, by moving off Swanston st they lost a goldmine in walk-by traffic. The new premises didn't get half the business. Very sad, I was a big fan of that shop and the passions it stood for.

  8. Please excuse him - Loz is easily confused by big words.

    Loz, ya clown. The one I saw you exiting was the Testicle Book Shop. Different company entirely.
  9. Well I was a fan of both... Shame I had to lose one eh?

    ...whooooaaaaa, see what I did there?
  10. Yeah, I figured that TBS had a replacement on backorder.

    (and I heard you didn't lose it, you wore it out)
