How did you learn basic bicycle repair?


Recommended Posts

I'm not a regualr cycler, but I cycle enough to get a puncture now and again. Puncture repair is the only thing I know how to do however. Where did you learn other repairs like chains coming off and other stuff? I assume a lot of people just ask others when a problem arises, although I'd rather not wait until it's too late to learn. :)

Once I started riding a bike and a problem came up my dad would teach me how to resolve it than.


I learned at an early age how to fix a flat, break a chaing, and even pin the bike to adjust the bars after a crash.

It wasn't until I had gotten a bike that had more complex components that I learned the skills that baffle the average rider.
