Your local bike mechanic might have you thinking that "wrenching" is right up there with rocket science. But the truth is, anyone can master the ins and outs of bicycle maintenance under the guidance of a good teacher. In lieu of a professor, the editors of Bicycling and Mountain Bike magazines have created a shop companion, which they refer to as "another tool for working on your bike." They guide you from the basics of your pre-ride checklist to tuning your derailleurs and overhauling your hubs. And they offer updated information on maintaining front shocks and even a handful of rear suspensions. What's more, they can walk you through the arduous task of rebuilding ancient parts that some shop mechanics haven't even heard of. If you've ever tried to work on your own car, you've undoubtedly developed a healthy fear of automobile shop manuals. But unlike the cryptic list of part numbers and equations you'll find at Pep Boys, this guide is written by people who want you to see just how rewarding bike maintenance can be. --Ben Tiffany

Amado Seja's repaired rear derailleur
Amado Seja's repaired rear derailleur
Amado (or Yellowhand) is not too particular about the lifespan of his bikes, so long as whatever he happens to be riding is working. Would I tour on this rear dropout after what it's been through? Probably not. Would I use it to cruise the Eastside and enjoy the good life? Heck yeah.

Amado Seja's trashed rear dropout
To repair this, I stuck a solid 3/8 axle between the dropouts and ... dropped the bike on the derailleur hanger until the dropout was back into place around the axle. Then i used rear derailleur hanger alignment tool from Park Tool to line up the derailleur.
