Emergency Bike Repair lets you hit the road with confidence knowing that you can handle all common—and even some not-so-common—emergency bike repairs. Professional mechanic Daimeon Shanks has been repairing bicycles for years at his high-end repair shop, The Service Course, as the head mechanic for the U.S. national team, and as mechanic for the Garmin Transitions ProTour cycling team. With Emergency Bike Repair he provides close-up photos and detailed instructions for 35 repairs that won't require either professional tools or mechanical experience. This handy reference for unexpected breakdowns and maintenance covers these areas:
-Wheels and rim
-Tires
-Chains
-Pedals and cleats
-Derailleurs and shifting
-Brakes
-Handlebars and saddle

Shanks includes information on assembling a portable repair kit as well as video demonstrations of frequent multistep repairs, such as fixing a dropped chain and removing the front or rear wheel. Featuring easy repairs for clinchers, tubeless tires, tubular tires, troublesome derailleurs, and handlebar alignments, Emergency Bike Repair gives you everything you need for worry-free cycling. The app puts professional assistance in the palm of your hand so you can safely return to the road if trouble strikes. It is as valuable as a GPS app or a weather tracker to cyclists seeking a hassle-free ride. This app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Kindle Fire tablet and Kindle HD.
