Do you often find yourself in need of advice when it comes to fixing your bike? BikeRadar has teamed with Haynes — makers of manuals for all things — to bring you The Road Bike Manual app, a comprehensive guide to maintaining and repairing your bike, and it has now been updated with even more roadside fixes.
The app, available on both Android and iOS for £2.99 / $2.99, features step-by-step practical tutorials about every aspect of road bike repair from hubs to headsets, and everything in between.
It includes dozens of videos, hundreds of images and more than 40,000 words detailing every workshop task you can think of.
In addition to all that, the Get Me Home section covers emergency inner tube and tyre fixes using common objects you can find on the ground, as well as how to get home with a broken handlebar, or even a damaged chain or wheel, and after listening to reader feedback this section has been updated with even more helpful advice.
Together with Chaz, author of the Road Bike Manual app, a series of step-by-step written instructions has been created to accompany the video tutorials.
