Bike Maintenance

A place to share bike repair instructions, tips, and recommended tools. As a beginner, learn the basics to maintain your bike so it runs like new all the time. As an experienced tinkerer, celebrate your latest wheel build or bottom bracket replacement. Never take your bike to the shop for repair again!

Louise B Bike Maintenance Tribe

Contributorsilver Louise B I know nothing about bike maintenance, really really bad. This year I will learn!


Happy to help with any advice - except suspension, which I don't understand at all. :)

Glad you like it @manusmriti, I got sent this after a trip to the bike shop where I said "the gear-shifter-thingy is definitely too far to the right" - I got very bemused looks from the guy servicing the bike!
