What are the best free online resources for bicycle maintenance?

I'm looking for those "hidden treasures" of bicycle maintenance. Sites, free manuals, tutorials, videos, etc. If you know of any "best in class" resources, please share them!

Seconding Sheldon Brown. Another source (though biased towards their own tools) is Park Tool.

Sheldon Brown, Park Tool, and a copy of Zinn's books (Zinn and the Art of Mountain/Road Bike Maintenance) are all you need.

A couple years ago I downloaded Barnett's manual as a PDF, but I can't find the source for it now. kingtaj, shoot me an e-mail.

Sheldon Brown's site and Park Tool are two places I often use. The bikeforums.net Bicycle Mechanics topic is often really helpful and you even find Sheldon Brown in there answering stuff now and then.

The utahmountainbiking.com forums have a great fix-it section with tons of experienced help.

Excellent answers! I was pleasantly surprised at how detailed the Sheldon Brown, Park Tool, and utahmountainbiking.com websites are.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
