Getting ready for bike building season

Greetings on this first day of March. Yes, there's still snow on the ground and temps dip at night, but there is hope that spring is on its way.

The garage door has thawed so we can actually open it!

Probably another few weeks before the annual garage cleaning and bike parts organizing extravaganza begins.

In the meantime, Brad is working on some detailed DIY bike related tutorials. Topics will include: derailleurs, cables and levers, chain management, head tubes, handlebars, coaster hubs, and frame building.

Stay tuned to the forum and here for updates on when they will be online. These tutorials will be free. We are also working on some DIY videos to be online soon.

If you have any bike building/bike hacking tutorial suggestions, post them on the forum. We are also gathering suggestions for bike projects to complete this year. There's a thread on the Builders Forum. Keep sending in those pictures of your completed bike projects, too. There will be more updates this week in the Builders Gallery.
