It isn’t even officially the school year yet and I am setting up my classroom, labs, and servers and as you see here am repairing my first flat. I picked up a small wire, ?steel belted truck tire?, but all good now.
Off to the shop this weekend to check my bike chain for wear. It seems slightly odd that given my mechanical aptitude and background with so many things, that I haven’t actually learned much about bike maintenance beyond the obvious.
Karma from this summer delivered a short review of BicycleTutor.com which had this video and information on “How to Check for Chain Wear“. Give them a look and buy them a cup of coffee if you use the video and it makes a difference. As soon as I finish, I will.
