Everything I ever knew about bicycles I learned from Eugene A. Sloan's amazing book, "The Complete Book of Bicycling" (1st edition.) Said book also uses 100% Campagnolo parts for repairs (as if Campagnolo EVER breaks! Never!) and pretty girls for the other illustrations.

I am quite certain that sloan says, "tape from the tops, and tuck the bar tape into the bar-ends with the plugs, when you are done." This is the path to enlightenment in cycling ...

I think that bicycling today suffers from the lack of a bible as good as Sloan's book.
