Fix your bike with Bike Radar’s new app
Our sister title Bike Radar and manual makers Haynes have teamed up to create The Road Bike Manual app, a comprehensive guide to maintaining and repairing your bike, with step-to-step practical tutorials on everything from hubs to headsets, and everything in between.
Priced £2.99 it includes 20 step-by-step videos, 50 sections of content and 40,000 words, plus new content updates every month, under the following sections; Pre-ride Checks, Drivetrain, Wheels, Frame, Brakes, Cockpit and ‘Get Me Home.’ For each of the jobs it tell you how long it will take and show you what tools you need to do it.
In particular the Get Me Home section covers emergency inner tube and tyre fixes using common objects you can find on the ground. You’ll also learn how to get home with a broken handle bar, or even a damaged chain or wheel.
