Do you often find yourself in need of advice when it comes to fixing your bike? BikeRadar teamed up earlier this year with Haynes — makers of manuals for all things — to release 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.
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.
So now, users of the app will find the following additional tutorials in the Get Me Home section:
- Emergency inner tube fix
- Emergency tyre fix
- Emergency chain fix
- How to singlespeed your bike
- How to fix a broken handlebar
- How to fix a badly buckled wheel
Each tutorial is illustrated with images for each step of the process, too.
From BikeRadar, the authority on all things bike, and Haynes, the most trusted name in manuals, The Road Bike Manual is the most thorough and comprehensive service and repair manual for your road bike.
