2. How do you true a bike wheel?
Teaching a person to straighten wheels is about as simple as teaching a baby how to walk. It takes practice and an incredible amount of patience to get it right.
I would suggest getting some one-to-one time with an experienced mechanic. Reading about it can help, but putting a wheel in your hand is truly the best way to learn and get the feel for straightening wheels.
It will also afford you the skill to know when a wheel can NOT be straightened. This in itself is a huge time saver. From there you could learn how to build wheels, an art in itself.
Hands on practice is always the best way. Ask any baby. So here's a question, how did you find this site? Did you type in: bike shops Peterborough, or perhaps, bike repair Peterborough? Just curious. It helps to know how visitors are finding me.

3. How do I fix a slipped bike chain?
Normally a chain slips because of one of two conditions.
Either the chain is worn out, and should be replaced, and/or the cog it is slipping off of is worn out. Both can be determined by a good mechanic and the proper tools.
Chains and gears very in price depending on application, manufacturer, quality level etc. Typically, a chain for a multi-speed bicycle will run around $24, but that can change as quality goes up or down.
Special tools are required to replace chains on multiple speed bikes, as well as tools to replace the gears on the front and rear of the bike. Talk to a good mechanic and get it done right.
I've started a YouTube channel that has short videos of some of the more interesting projects. I hope to post some "how-to" videos over the winter, so please be sure to check that out, and don't forget to "share".
