right into the nut.
On my Fixie bike, when take the back tire off I notice there is alot of play where the chain ring is mounted when I move both pedals arms back and forth/side to side. Is this normal?
Thanks for the info! I bought a single speed mountain bike super cheap to lose a few pounds, 197 down to 181 today, in 2 months. It makes me work hard, especially up the hills. Now I know a little more about how to maintain it!
I wish dentists or surgeons had their instruments as clean as that bike
Actually i would tighten the side with the chain first while holding it tight but thats just me im not trying to contradict what hes saying but it makes more sense to tighten first the side with the gear and chain while holding it tight if you can and then the other side since this bike has that special bolt. Am i wrong or is he more correct i dont know but my sixth sense tells me the gear side forst if you have that kind of bolt. But on conventional bikes it might make more sense to do the other side of your having trouble with the wheel slipping back. I am no mechanic but on metal frames it seems like its better to keep the gear side tight first then the have the other side pull inot the tighter side maybe. Again i am guessing and it probably wont make a big difference just my guess i guess. Love this guy hes very helpful and makes many things easier and adds a lot of knowledge to everyone.
"You're average Joe nut" I got that. I wanna upgrade to those exotic nuts.
I have son that are into track and road, so I know now.
Best tool kit is from Aldi $30 AUD has all the tools you need.
Love what you do. You have great tips for the novice rider.
Cheap bike are good. Only as good as the mechanic or the student. Its fun to fix a bike. Time and grease is most of it. I am a ex- paper boy from many years past. Have learn many tricks to keep a bike going. Mostly through necessary.
7eleven? Wth. All gas station coffee is garbage, especially 7eleven. Love ur vids though.
What bike is that ?
¡Pinche gringo mamón! jajajaja
First timer… I love your video! Thank you for the knowledge with the laughs! 😆
"Right into the nut" That's what he said 😂😂
hey this is my problem cause the bike mechanic here sucks, my rear wheels are not in the center and my chain don't have that tension and tightness like you shown here in the video. thanks for this man
I hate the guy
what dem deez nuts brutha
@3:44 "and here's where she gets nice and tight" …. 😛
Anyway, thanks for taking the time to make this useful video. You're a star.
where do I get those special nuts?
7-11 coffee.. the best coffee within the confines of a 7-11 store
I cant watch this video deez nuts hahahaa
This is going to seem nuts. I'm new to single/fixed speed. I have had my bike since June 2015. I got a flip flop hub installed and requested single speed. For the last 6-7 months I've been using single speed/free wheeling etc. I noticed my chain was loose and watched this video. I tightened the chain and all was great for several weeks. Today I attempted to cycle and nearly killed myself because the bike is now fixed. What has happened? This is weird. The chain is still on the freewheel cog.
you talk too much and make shit way too complicated.
Is this in rosemary beach Florida?
that bike is a piece of sheeiittt
Did he seriously just sponsor 7 11
7eleven coffee tastes like burnt tyres
Full of shit, why didn't you take your fingers and adjust the back hub? HACK
+bikemanforu what do you think of using two wrenches for tensioning? The technique has served me well. I just want your take on it.
deez nuts :]
Bikeman says, DEEZ NUTZ!HA better than regular ones….
how do i get my back wheel from shifting to the side to the point where it rubs against the frame? its happend to me twice already and is getting annoying.
'Not your average Joe nuts'. Lol that's what she said.
hi may i know how you make got two sides other side are fixed and other side is free? is it cause of the flip flop hub only? +BikemanforU
