If your bike needs repairing you may be able to save yourself a lot of money and hassle by making the repair yourself. The Easy Bike Repair app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is provides you with easy-to-follow, well-laid-out instructions on how to go about making repairs. The app is divided into a few main sections so you can quickly and easily find what you need to get started on the task at hand.
Sometimes you don't have the extra money to take your bike in for repairs; sometimes it may be a time issue and you can't be without your bike for who knows how many days while you wait for someone to get around to repairing it at the shop. This app allows you to be proactive and take the situation into your own hands. This app isn’t just about repairs, though, as it also walks you through basic maintenance of your bike so hopefully you can prevent the need to ever make a repair.
As mentioned you are given step-by-step detailed instructions on how to make these repairs and the instructions include photos so that you are well aware of what you need to do. You do not have to be a professional or have any experience fixing bikes in order to successfully use this app. Although this app isn’t free, when you think about how much you might have to spend on a repair, this is much cheaper.
A User-Friendly Repair Tool
This app features repairs on 25 common problems you will run into with your bike. The repairs all use simple tools that you likely have at home already, and as mentioned you do not have to have any experiencing repairing bikes to understand these instructions. All of these repairs are available offline, which is great if you happen to be out on a trail and run into an issue. You can easily launch the app and possibly repair your bike right there on the spot. The app has been divided into a few categories to make navigation simple and quick. These sections are tools, repair, problem, maintenance, bike fitting, and bike anatomy.
There are plenty of positives in this app and I really like that it is made to be simple so that no matter what level of knowledge regarding bike repairs you have, you’ll be able to perform these fixes.
