Bicycle maintenance need not be a mystery. There might be bike co-ops or something like them in Houston that offer instruction in bike repair. There are also online resources, beginning with Sheldon Bown's site, www.sheldonbrown.com
. Who knows you might have an inner mechanic wanting to come out.
Old discarded bikes and parts are good to start on because you don't want to hammer up a new bike.
In any case, if you are car free and dependent on your bike, it would be a good idea to learn the most common repairs and adjustments.
