I've been really happy with my Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance and I'm going to buy his one on mountain bikes as well.

Cool Barnett's Manual

Barnett's Manual is a four-volume comprehensive repair manual that really can't be beat if you're comfortable reading repair manuals. It lacks the nice narrative style of Zinn, but covers more with more detail and has great diagrams.

I have an old copy of Zinn's MTB book which is helpful for my old MTB. For my newer road bikd, I have Park's blue book. The park tools web site also has a lot of helpful information; basically everything in the book and then some.

If you need free resources, the park tools web site is the best.
