Repair Help Needed
« on: April 26, 2020, 12:22:11 PM »
Hi all,
New to the forum and relatively new to MTB.
Sorry if this is the wrong place.
I live in Upper Ferntree Gully. I need some help on basic maintenance on my Focus. Just someone to teach me how to adjust the brakes gears etc. Obviously happy to pay for such help.
Anyone local able to help out?

If you haven't had any luck by next weekend, hit me up. I'm probably too busy midweek to help out, but should be able to run you through a few things on the weekend if you can come down the hill to narre warren.

  • Does the word 'shred' mean anything to you?

I can try, I'll direct message you my email, let me know what you're struggling with.  Could be interesting trying to problem solve online :)

Hey Luke, welcome to LDTR mate. Dale and Helen will be a great help, they know almost everything about bikes. In the meantime, you can always jump on YouTube and check out some vids there. I’ve found there is a help vid for pretty much any bike or part. The first time I changed my own BB, it took me about 7 goes to get it right, but got there in the end and now know how to do it properly.

Cheers. Tim
