Bike Maintenance Made Easy!
Spring is here and it's time to get out and ride! However, performing much needed maintenance on your bike can seem overwhelming and hauling your bike into a shop for spring maintenance can prove to be somewhat costly.
Much of the anxiety associated with bike maintenance is just from not knowing. If you're like me, you're sitting in quarantine during these troubled times associated with COVID-19 and what better time to educate yourself?! Along with not having the required knowledge, is needing the right tools for the job. If you have proper guidance and the physical ability, I assure you that this can be done by yourself and once you do it... you'll never need to pay the bike shop again to do simple repairs and maintenance!
Here is a comprehensive tutorial put out by SickBiker on YouTube. It's long and thorough but if you'd like to see a particular function, they list timings below the video so you can skip right to what you are looking for. This video is a great way to learn everything from adjusting your rear derailleur to replacing brake pads. Enjoy that ride!
