DIY Bicycle Tweaking
We all have friends who can wreak as much havoc with a screwdriver in their hand as a machine-gun, for their own safety they should not be allowed within 2oft of a toolbox.
For the rest of us learning some basic bicycle mechanics can be rewarding and save some hard-earned cash. Don’t tackle the big jobs at first, keep it simple stupid and start with the basics. I can usually find what I want on Sheldon Brown’s old site, but sometimes seeing it done on video is easier.
MadeGood out of the UK have over 100 free video tutorials on most aspects of bike repair. Don’t watch these late at night, even the fanatics among us will fall asleep at the keyboard, but the few I looked through seemed well thought-out like the derailleur-indexing example featured above. This is a simple task I have well and truly stuffed-up in the past!
