London Cyclist

Have you ever wanted to maintain your bike yourself?

Bike Doctor 2.0 has been created to make bicycle maintenance as simple as possible.

Not everyone is a technically minded bike mechanic. Sometimes, reading the instructions for a bike repair, it can feel that way. That's why we've designed Bike Doctor to be as easy to follow as possible. Making it suitable even for a complete beginner. It is an app I wish I had available to me, when I first started cycling.

Using the step by step instructions you will:
◆ Save money on bike shop repairs (Even a simple puncture repair in a bike shop costs upwards of $15)
◆ Know how to detect problems
◆ Repair any issues that arise, such as squeaks and poor performance
◆ Learn how to safety check your bike to be sure it is always ready to ride
◆ Keep your bike running smoothly for years to come

Inside the Bike Doctor app you'll discover:
◆ How to repair and prevent punctures
◆ How to detect if your brake pads are worn out and replace them (Including Disk Brakes)
◆ How to clean your bike
◆ How to lubricate your bike
◆ The 7 rookie bicycle maintenance mistakes you should avoid
◆ How to adjust your headset
◆ How to wrap handlebar tape
◆ How to adjust your gears
◆ How to true a bicycle wheel
◆ How to fit a new chain and rear cassette(A very common yearly repair!)
◆ How to bleed disk brakes
◆ How to remove and replace a bottom bracket
◆ How to replace brake and gear cables
◆ And that's just scratching the surface! We've got all the most common repairs in the app and we're constantly asking for feedback from users of our app to discover what repairs they would like added - and then adding these in.

Bike Doctor 2.0 is the new version of the original best-selling Bike Doctor. The original version has been downloaded over 10,000 times and received coverage in some of the most popular cycling magazines including Bicycling and Cycling Plus.

The Bicycle is the ultimate in independence - learn how to keep yours maintained and in tip-top condition to insure it is always ready to get you to your destination!

Here are some of the many 5 star reviews we've received:
"I'm over the moon with this app I read somewhere about truing wheels and it said don't bother unless you are a pro, but I've just sorted my wheels out a treat. The app paid for itself straight away."
"Great app, worth every penny saved money on a service already !!!!"
"This is a good App for the keen cyclist, as a Cytech technician I recommend this App."
"Excellent application with some nice clear photos. Explanations are concise but personal, the writer has a passion for cycling and it shows, which makes for a refreshing experience."
"Very comprehensive explanations, great photos, easy to use."

Bike Doctor has been created by Andreas Kambanis of London's most popular cycling blog: londoncyclist.co.uk.
