BIKESBIKESBIKESSSS! Bike tech, the “Ideal” bike, tool tips, how to save money or make it with bikes, durability and more. Podcast 0007

A longer podcast in which I give tips and my view on the “ideal” do-it-all, durable, affordable, low maintenance, least theft prone bike. Most basic tools needed to start fixing or making your own bike. How to successfully flip bikes and top tips for the best sites and people to learn bike tech from. Mentions of Sheldon brown, world touring, small wheel vs speed debate, Brooks saddles, hand building wheels and a whole lot more.

Click on the pics above to expand them and get an idea of my ‘ideal’ bike before and after making it all purpose and making it inconspicuous/uglier (reversible).

Below, my bike workshop with free heating, WiFi and music, love that place:
