Learning how to care for and repair your bicycle is something every owner needs to know. If you are like my friend Derek, you don’t even know how to clean your chain. Of course, all of us start out at this point at some time or another. Now even if you know how to clean your chain, there are a lot of other things you can learn about your bike.
I’ve come across a great website to teach you just about everything you’ll need to know about caring for and repairing your bicycle.
This website is almost perfect. I say this because the guy who does the videos, although helpful, is a bit of a drag on the ears. Not only are there a ton of videos teaching you how to do this such as:
- Give your bike a complete home tune-up
- Patch flats
- Replace grips and handlebar tape
- Adjust brakes
- True a wheel
- Overhaul a bottom bracket
- Remove the cassette
- Replace spokes
- Replace chainrings
- Lubricate your bike
- Overhaul wheel bearings
There are a lot of other videos on the site as well. I certainly hope they will help you on your next journey and save you from having to watch me do repairs on video.
