    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Step 1) Check the out library to see what bike repair manuals they can get for you.

    Step 2) Buy a cheapie bike off of craigslist or a yardsale to fix up...mess up your project bike while you tinker/learn, not your main ride.

    Step 3) ????

    Step 4) Profit!

    There really isnt any reason to spend a dime on learning how to work on your bike.
    Sheldon and Park have more knowledge than you'll ever need.
