Bike Maintenance for Beginners?
I just started riding 6 weeks ago, and am the n00biest n00b that ever n00bed. My boyfriend rode across Canada last summer and is as advanced as I am n00bie (and the most supportive sig.oth. that a person can have).
I got a flat a few weeks ago and I my bike sat forlornly in my apartment until he could come and fix it. I'd love to learn how to take care of my own bike, but I haven't found any good resources online that I've been able to learn from. There's a program here in Toronto called "Wenches with Wrenches" who hold bike maintenance seminars but I missed their last summer workshop and the next one isn't until September!
So my question: Does anyone have any really good online/dead tree resources for learning bike repair and maintenance? Know of any other beginner bike maintenance workshops in Toronto?
Please help transform me from a dependent damsal in distress into an in control cycling chick!
