Strengths:    Great video! Especially if you're just getting into biking.

Weaknesses:    Everything is pretty well explained and easy to understand. Only thing I might complain about are the few sections that are rushed. I can't remember exactly what sections are rushed, but it's only a few. No big deal, really. Oh yeah, and the music sucks, lol.

Bottom Line:   
If you really want to learn how to work on your bike, get a few of these bike repair DVDs. After you've watched them, go and get your hands dirty. I'm a newbie to biking and haven't touched a bike for almost 10 years. It hasn't even been a month since I got my first mountain bike and I already know (and have done it) how to replace the brake/shifter cables, adjust brakes/front/rear derailleurs, remove/install a chain, replace/patch tubes and how to more or less true a wheel. Almost all of it I learned from this DVD. It's good to know your bike, especially if you're someone who ventures out on their own. This past weekend, I was biking at the foothills alone and I ended up getting a flat, and replaced the tube on the spot. A short distance later, a thorn popped it again and I patched it up near a pond (had to submerge the tube in water to find the culprit). Shortly after, the tube got popped again and I filled it up with slime this time. I managed to "limp" back home. That just comes to show how important it is to know how to at least do basic repairs. I was miles away from home, imagine if I didn't know how to do any of that? I'd be screwed! Oh yeah, and one other thing. Practice how to use your emergency tools and how to remove/install your wheels/tires before you get yourself into a bad situation. If you carry slime, learn how to use it. Practice how to install/remove a chain. All that good stuff. Believe me, being out in the middle of nowhere is not the place to be learning how to do these things. You'll be stuck there for a very long time as you try and figure out how your bike parts work. This DVD will teach you all this stuff, just practice it.

Best storage rack for hanging bike in garage with security lock?

I want to hang my bikes on the wall in the garage so it looks neater and out of the way and off the floor when not using it. I live with roomates who sometime leave the garage open so my more expensive bike needs to be locked up. Right now have a cable lock around the frame and stairpost so nobody ... Read More »

Tool Storage - What do you use for your bike shop/garage?

Bike Geeks, Like many of you, I have a fleet of rides, and other than a shock rebuild, have always done all my own wrenching. We have moved to a new location, a small single car garage, with a work area about 10'x7'. I'm trying to sort out how to store tools, and bike parts. As a temporary ... Read More »

Carbon bike, HOT garage?

'Tis the season and I wanted to leave this in an AZ-specific forum. Besides the probable shock/fork seal issues, are there any issue with garaging a carbon MTB in a sweltering garage? I can move it inside, but prefer not to unless there's a compelling reason. Gracias.Read More »
