YouTube is very helpful! RJBikeGuy video's are great!

I just repacked wheel bearings after watching video's on how easy it is to do.

Question #1 being - where does the OP live? Along with the above, and depending on the answer to question #1 , a bike co-op is another very good possible option.

How big is your problem? Is it bigger than a house?

YouTube videos are a great resource for learning information directly related to your bike. A lot depends on the genre of bike you're working on. RJ the bike guy primarily focuses on 80's and 90's technology. Park Tools YouTube channel is a great resource for most all bikes in general. If you have a mountain bike, Seth's bike hacks is great. I feel like I've gotta plug my channel as well. It's got a wide rage of tutorials and all things bicycle related

Lack of repair knowledge is a small problem, that is easily solved. Using that new knowledge to "effectively" perform the repair/adjustment is always the big problem for me. I hate that the bike I ride (sometimes at 50 mph) is built on a foundation of YouTube and "trial and error". C'est la vie.

Park tool website, YouTube, and find a friend that knows how to fix bikes for the inevitable questions.

Next find an old but working bike for your cadaver to practice on.

Is your bike known for its work in the theater?
