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!

Laura D Bike Maintenance Tribe

For the length of time I've owned my bicycle the tires have never had punctures. The bike has been on the road and off-road both as it is a hybrid. Friends of mine bike in the same areas and come up with thorns. The Armadillo tires are inpenetrata...

Ris S Bike Maintenance Tribe

I have two:  a hybrid which I do my commute on (can't put panniers of books to mark on a road bike and I HATE cycling with a backpack on) and is my whizz round town, every day bike. I have also done all my cycling touring on it. My road bike is fo...
