Rules of the Thumb!


Waukehsa Bike Repair
No. 1- Never loan tools to friends.

No. 2- If it’s threaded, grease it.

No. 3- You can’t properly adjust a bicycle that is dirty and not lubricated.

No. 4-
 Perfect the art of changing a flat. No excuses.

No. 5-
 Nylon tire levers are better than metal ones.

No. 6
– Measure twice, then cut. This especially goes for steerer tubes and integrated seatposts.

No. 7-
 When disassembling something, keep track of the order in which you remove parts. It takes the mystery out of putting it back together.

No. 8-
 Check tire pressure before every ride, especially if you’re running tubeless.

No. 9-
 The three most important tools to have on a ride: a multitool with a chain breaker, a pump or CO2, and a patch kit or tube.

No. 10-
 When tinkering with anything near your cranks, shift into the big ring first so you don’t mangle your hand on the chainring teeth.
