Mechanical tips

Being the repository for really helpful servicing and mechanical tips

How to adjust mechanical disk brake calipers - A great pictorial by Montague Bikes

Park Tool Company - Repair Help - Why pay a mechanic to repair your bike when you can learn how to do it here?  (Answer: Because we have been doing it for a long time, and we own a lot of Park specialty tools silly.)

Sheldon Brown's bicycle technical info - Don't leave home without it. Truly amazing. We lost Sheldon too soon in 2008, but his knowledge lives on and continues to grow. I have learned a great deal from Sheldon's informative and effective communication style.
