Chainbreaker is published by Shelley Jackson of New Orleans, LA. Issue #4 is the latest and there is a Anthology coming soon.

Chainbreaker focuses on bike culture and the general love of bicycles. Shelley works as a bike mechanic in NOLA. Issues have given readers tips on fixing flats as well as general maintenance of ones ride. There is also information about the Plan B bike project in New Orleans which is run by volunteers and open to the public. Shelley discusses her experiences with being a woman cyclist as well as a bike mechanic and the harassment that goes along with both.

Shelley also published New Orleans...My Love which was about her experiences in Post-Katrina New Orleans and A Rough Guide to Bicycle Maintenance which is a user friendly diy guide to fixing your bicycle.
