Our philosophy:  It's dangerous to treat your bike as a mechanical mystery. Keeping your bike in good condition, well-tuned and well-maintained, makes you a safer biker. Since it's your hide that will get injured when the bike falls apart, learn how to repair and maintain the exposed parts yourself. After all, the bike shop won't be there when your brakes fail in the middle of the Slickrock Trail.
