So you want to start doing your own bike repairs at home? Good idea! It can be fun and rewarding to fix your own bikes.

I like to live by the motto, "if you want something done right, you've gotta do it yourself." It is so true, especially for anything "repair" related jobs.

Random tip: Instead of buying special soap to remove all the extra grease from your hands, do this: Rub vegetable oil into your hands before you wash them. It loosens the grease and you can use your regular soap.
