    Great iNfo for working on the bike

    HI,
    I Stumbled on this over at the MEchanical forums, and felt it was very useful for anyone wanting to work on their bike they even have a tune-up section..http://bicycletutor.com/
    My last service call today was for 46 bucks rear wheel service and cassette. , I did need some bearings though with the packing of the rear hub.
    After I order some additional tools I will be able to clean out my bike bearing and hubs and save alot of that money. I do like fiddling with things. he maybe I can do this oneday after i Retire..

    The problem with learning how to fix your bike is that now you need to buy tools. After the tools arrive you could be unlucky enough to become good at it. Pretty soon, your going to want to build a bike to "save money". Then your going to discover the wonderful world of buying bike parts. Now you need more tools...................more parts.....................and all this time all you thought about N+1 was another bicycle every now and again.........

    Like maddmaxx says, its a skill and a tool and more tools and better tools and a skill or two more and more tools to have some good ones to carry around and that wheel is almost right and where is that machine shop and all of a sudden all friends have bikes and they start buying tools and . . .

    Not that there's anything wrong with that.
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
