Improvements on 101 bike tips

Over at the Bicycle Touring list, Mark G. takes on Bicycling magazine:

 

You may have seen the cover of the May 2013 issue of Bicycling magazine: The 101 Best Maintenance Tips Ever, page 57.Unfortunately, and surprisingly, it is full of misinformation. 101 Maintenance Tips With a 30% Error Rate would be more like it. I felt I should I correct, or at least improve upon, the deficient tips. I wish I had a blog so people could comment, but anyway, here it is.

I didn’t read the original article, but Mark G makes a number of good suggestions in his review that seem very sound to me. It’s worth a look.
