mountain bikes getting more and more technical these
days it gets harder and harder to fix your bike on your
own. I never thought that after working as a bike tech
and riding for so many years, that I'd have to rely
on my local bike shop so often. Disk brakes, advanced
suspension systems and highly technical frame designs
have kept me spending quite a chunk of change for repairs
and maintenance over the last few years.
I will still support my local shop with repairs that
are either too time consuming or require complex tools,
the new interactive mountain bike repair CD-ROM from
Break-It, Fix-It, Ride-It
has given me the best instruction yet on installing,
repairing, maintaining, and upgrading mountain bike
was surprised at both the detail and complexity of the
instruction, as well as the simplicity of the design
interface and process. The program navigation is completely
visual. You don't have to know names of anything. Just
look at a picture of a bike and point to the part where
you want to repair, replace or adjust. It'll tell you
what the name of the part of the bike is as well as
all the sub-parts. You can go as deep as you want, down
to individual limit skrews on your derailers, for example,
with super high resolution photos. Everything is cross
referenced so any part or tool name in the text is linked
to a definition an picture! I was amazed at how much
I didn't know about my bike.
the easies step by step instructions and detailed close
up photos of every step of the process, this thing could
quickly be required viewing for bike shop mechanic instruction.
And at 30 bones, it'll pay for itself with the first
home tuneup you do.
guys teamed up with Intense Cycles, Hayes, SRAM, Michelin
and other sponsers to put out a great product.
