BIK103 (1of2) Mechanical Safety (6:52)
Mechanical Safety, Part 1 of 2. Shopping for a second-hand bike? Just pulled the old clunker out of the basement? Or maybe you’re prepping the machine for winter storage? Bill Mould, Chief Mechanic at Spokes Etc in Alexandria, Virginia guides us through some safety considerations before putting an unfamiliar bike on the trail. Bill is a master bike mechanic and instructor, with a bench full of certifications and decades of advanced maintenance under his tool belt.
We first meet two racers fresh off the mountain bike track at the recent Greenbrier Challenge. Cass and Tanya were joined by over five hundred others in April in northern Maryland for one of the fastest growing MTB events in the world. The event is now part of the UCI system, which means watch for future Olympic cyclists in an upcoming episode.
