Just a little Sunday bike ride through our nations capital. Special thanks to Adam of @velofixottawa for doing a fantastic maintenance job on my bike. I highly recommend his mobile bike service. Nice to be flying at top speed on my bike. Lol #ottawa #myottawa #myottawalife #loveottawa #velofix#velofixottawa #yow #ottcity #ottawafitness #ottawafit #cyclingottawa #ottawabikepath #thatview

Start of my Canada Day long weekend with my cycling crew on a 44km bike ride, or as I call it cycling food tour with Harjit. 🤣 Nice pitstop at @dominioncity for lunch. My gps decided to die at the 37km mark, but that was a sweet ride. #cyclingwithharjit #ottawa #ottawacycling #ottawabikepath #dominioncity #dominioncitybrewingco #outdooradventures #ottawalife #myottawa #loveottawa #summer2018 @velofixottawa #velofix #velofixottawa

Touring around this beautiful city. First time heading east on Parkway Sundays.  I love the Aviation museum and how it looks so small.

Wear your bike lock! The @hiploklocks Lite is an awesome product if you want security and flexibility. ⛓⛓⛓⛓
.
Tip: dont forget to lock your front wheel as well, especially if you have a quick release skewer!

Watch out Ottawa, there’s a new cyclist in town.  Wasn’t home 30 min with the new bike before heading out for a 5-6 hour ride. #ottawa #ottawabikepath #cyclelife #bikeottawa #roadbike  thanks to #kunstadtsports for setting me up with my new ride!
The final destination with my bike crew. Words don’t fully describe the beauty of this view. The City has placed Muskoka chairs so people can now sit back and enjoy the view. #ottawa #ottawariver #ottawariverparkway #ottawabikepath #myottawa #loveottawa #cyclingottawa #outdoors2018 #springcycling #ottawatourism

Good morning Instafam! Have a safe and happy weekend wherever you are. It’s Ribfest in Ottawa this weekend! Yay! Oh yeah, and rise up, and get at it. Life’s too beautiful to be sitting on a couch. Get it in any way you can, you feel me? #rollerblading #rollerblades #exercise #motivation #ottawa #ottawabikepath #sunsets #ribfest2018 #613 #ottawaontario🇨🇦
Feeling a spiritual re-connection with this place, it’s been on my mind as it reminds me of home. Now that the trails have reopened I will be visiting this place often this summer. Taken with fisheye lens.

I’ve worked as the Master Mechanic in a high volume bike shop over the past 6 years. I rarely had the chance to take my time when working on a bike. There was always another bike waiting in the cue or other jobs to be done. Having started my own repair business I can now give each bike the time and attention it deserves and indulge my obsession with all the little details. Details matter. They all add up to create the whole.  When we launch the website, repairs will be booked by appointment only to ensure that I always have the time to give your bike the attention it deserves. More to come.... .

If you are not out riding you can always relax by reading about riding. This book is laugh out loud funny and a must read for anyone who has ever ridden a bicycle or just thought about riding a bicycle. .

Lever throw is the distance your brake lever has to travel to fully engage your brakes. You can fine tune lever throw using the barrel adjuster located on your brake  caliper (seen above). Flat bar brake levers will have barrel adjusters where the housing exits the lever. Hydraulic brake system do not have barrel adjusters. Turning the barrel adjuster counter clockwise will bring the brake pads closer to the rim and reduce lever throw. As your brake pads wear from use your lever throw increases and using the barrel adjuster is a quick and easy way to counter act that. .

This is my best friend Lucasz. He’s a Master Bike Mechanic who just opened up his own shop in Ottawa. If you need repairs or a tune-up on your ride this summer; he’s your guy. #Repost @woodwardbicycleco
・・・It wasn’t too long ago that was caught up in a routine. I thought I was happy. Now, with the support of my wife and daughter I’m starting my own business and doing what I love...getting people excited to ride their bikes! Now I know what happiness feels like. More to come...

Derailleur hangers have the critical job of holding your rear derailleur perfectly parallel to the centre plane of your frame (if you cut your frame perfectly in half with a laser that would be the central plane of your frame). They can get bent from a crash or if you lay your bike down derailleur side down and at best you get poor shifting performance. At worst, when you shift into the biggest cog on your cassette the derailleur gets caught in the wheel spokes and is ripped off while you get thrown from your bike.  You should check it regularly and if it’s bent have a  mechanic straighten it for you. If you need to order a replacement, remember they are specific to the brand and specific model of your bike.  Check out the wheels manufacturing website for help choosing a replacement.

A common question I have had from clients over the years is : how long can I expect my drivetrain to last? The answer has always been - it depends. One of the factors it depends on is how clean you keep your drivetrain.  The cleaner you can keep it, the longer it will last. I pulled this cassette off the rear wheel to give it a thorough cleaning using the few simple tools shown but you can help your drivetrain out with just an old rag some degreaser (dish soap and warm water). Wipe down your chain and cassette often and save some $$ in the long run. For beer. Or coffee. Or more Lycra. .
