When it comes to mornings at Recycle-A-Bicycle's Clinton Hill shop, everything seems to hum with life and activity–due in large part, we suspect, to the bike mechanic training that takes place in the back of the shop.
It’s all fun and games until someone gets a flat. Nothing takes the joy out of a ride faster than an unexpected mechanical malfunction. But many common problems are easier to fix than you might think. Knowing the basics of bike maintenance lets you pedal with confidence, no matter what surprises the road may have in store.
