DIY Tutorials

If you're like me, you like to do a lot of your own repairs. It's cheaper, you don't have to go to the bike store, etc. But sometimes you just don't know how, and that book you bought isn't quite doing it. Well, there's some great guides on the internet. There's also some real bad ones. But which ones are which? First off, look for quality in the video, if it was taken with a cell phone, chances are, it's not gonna be very helpful. I've got a link to some good videos here Technical Tuesday. These come from a site called Pinkbike. This is most likely, the biggest biking website there is. It's a huge community. And they have a special called Tech Tues. The series is expanding and can really help any of you DIY'ers. From changing a flat to installing headsets to measuring chain wear.

  2. Thanks a lot for the tips. I got a norco hardail myself and I busted a tire bunny hopping into a pothole (it was 2am and dark >.<). Tried to find insturctional videos but failed, so I went to a bike shop and they actualy did a pretty good and fast (3 mins!) replacement for only $15.
