I'm blaming all of this on the BF forum, because before I had ever heard of you, I lived a sane, quiet life (of course, I didn't bike, but that's another story).
Now I've gone beyond getting excited and committed to biking. I've got two bikes I ride. I've got another my daughter uses, and half of another I used for some parts for her bike. And, now i've gotten a whole bunch of parts, wheels, tires, a frame, and other odds and ends.
Here's what I'd like some help with:
What do I need to build up a basic took kit to work on these things? What tools, and what else do I need? Bearing (no pun) in mind this stuff will be used in my living room (for now) and that I'm on a budget, what would you suggest I purchase? I have a set of sockets (including metric), allen wrenches and screwdrivers. I have one book -- put out by Bicycling Magazine (and it's okay, but not ideal for me). So what else do I need, including "non-tools" such as oils, solvents, rags, whatever?
Also -- in the process of learning all this bike maintenance stuff -- what would you recommend I work on first? What would be a natural progression of easy projects to harder ones?
Any ideas would be helpful.
