My bike gets some pretty rough treatment - on road, off road, stairs, beaches - and it has served me well. But I confess, I don't look after it as well as I should. Why? Because beyond the really obvious on the run repairs like chains coming off or tires going flat I don't really know where to start. Thankfully I found a free, really basic bicycle maintenance guide that even I can understand.
Basic tool kit information.
Daily, weekly and monthly maintenance schedules.
Tips on how to check and maintain your wheels, brakes, gears, steering, pedals and frame.
And step by step puncture repair instructions.
