Basic Bicycle Maintenance and Repair


This guide is for:

  • common bicycle repairs that need more than an allen key, an adjustable spanner, and a bit of common sense to figure out.
  • people who are basically 'handy', but do not know about bike components or bike tools.
  • everyday cycling, not racing, extreme environments or restoration.



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



Bike Fixer

Bike Fixer is a co-op of bikers and web designers.
"mc" grew up car-free in the countryside, and had to ride a bike from an early age - absolute magic! In later life, he survived London traffic and l'Etape du Tour.

The books below are tremendously helpful, but there is a lot of material to get through.

Top10bikefixes is going for gold with Velo Club de Trabail - "Chapeau" to past, present and future members.

If they knew how to fix their bikes, they would not keep the rest of the team waiting around!
