And, although bike repair seems simple to a lot of people, to others it's just not something that comes naturally. I firmly believe mechanical aptitude is not universal. Yes, these things can be learned. But (and I suppose I should only speak for myself) trying to fix mechanical things always drives me nuts. Bad enough I don't always know what I'm supposed to do, but then you add in having to use reading glasses that always seem to fall off when I'm trying to use both hands to hold something and before long, it all goes haywire. What's simple to some is simply frustrating to others. Thank God for cellphones for those of us who aren't so mechanically minded as others. I know I've said I want to learn these things, but it just doesn't come easily.
