5 tips for the home mecanic

Nothing more fun than reparing your bike yourself! Especially when it's so cold outside. Our five best tips for the novice home mechanic.

1. Never do a job without the right tool

Buying will pay out quickly, even if you don't use it much.

2. Read up well

The YouTube channels of Parktool and Art's Cyclery are super. Take pictures if you take apart complex parts such as hubs.

3. Brake cleaner and Dasty

These are perfect degreasers and much cheaper than products made specifically for road bikes. Dasty is also biodegradable.

4. Get a good repair stand

This doesn't have to be expensive. The simple model from Lidl's is good enough for 9 out of 10 home mechanics.

5. Keep a basic stock of parts

Such as chains, a cassette, handlebar tape, cleats and brake pads. That will save a lot of trouble.
