Welcome to BikeRadar’s bike maintenance video series, produced in conjunction with Unior tools, British Cycling and Cycling Plus.
In part one, former Team GB pro mechanic Spike Taylor shows you how to tune your brakes and gears, one of the most common questions asked by the home bike mechanic.
Spike covers how to change and align brake shoes, adjusting brake cable tension and adjusting the indexing on your gears so that your shifting is clean.
