Bike Maintenance Videos

Leave it to the Brit’s to come up with this idea: bike maintenance videos on www.youtube.com. The latest issue of the RoadBikeRider.com Newsletter reports that Carlton Reid, editor of BikeBiz.com, created a beginner’s guide to bike maintenance. This is a series of videos on www.you.tube.com. Now you can brushup on your skills during the winter.
