Bike Tutor

This is a pretty cool website for those who want to fix their bikes themselves.
Read up and good luck.
We hope that you also are aware of the SLO Bike Kitchen

Here’s a little bit about Bicycle Tutor:

The purpose of this site is to help people learn how to fix their own bikes. While I don’t work in a shop anymore, I still have all of my tools and some parts so I might as well share what I know (and learn from you). I’m on the lookout for different kinds of bikes so I can cover as many different jobs as possible. I’m keeping a tidy list of all your requests and I imagine we’ll have 1-200 videos on this site over the next two years. If I figure out a way to make money from this (while keeping the tutorials free) I plan to get a studio and some better equipment. Then I’ll go back and refine many of the videos using close-ups and cut-aways, etc… and improve things based on what I’ve learned from all of your feedback. Thanks for watching!

Two Important Things!

Item #1: ( July )

There is an event in the Mission Plaza that may conflict with the pre-ride gathering.
Go around the Mission and meet at Broad and Monterey

Item #2: ( Forever )

Decide where to Ride.
Do not gather at the Bank of America parking lot after the second lap.
Go to a park. Go to a bar. Just go somewhere far.
