Bicycles and cycling – from an enthusiast, for enthusiasts  🙂

* BikeGremlin manifest – who are we, what is our mission?

Bike Gremlin website provides info about cycling, riding techniques, bicycle repair and maintenance instructions, cycling clothing etc.There are posts that explain basic things, for beginners (how to remove a wheel, patch a tyre, how to check a 2nd hand bike before buying etc.). There are also posts that explain advanced riding techniques, for more experienced riders, as well as maintenance and repair tutorials. For mechanics (whether fixing one’s bike at home, or professional), there are posts with tables used for learning, or reference (reminder).

Here are a few tips for easier navigation of the site:

Post types – how complex the topic is and what it is based on. Appropriate icon will be shown at the beginning of most posts:

Types of posts

Some posts are marked with two, or the three icons. This gives a bit more complex meaning. For example: basic, or advanced level of mechanics (repairs). Or, for posts explaining riding techniques, from which both the novices and the experienced cyclists can gain more knowledge – depending on their level of skill and application of explained techniques. And similar.

Categories (contents) – all the posts are grouped by categories, based on the topic they explain. All the categories are listed in the drop-down main menu on top. List of all the published posts sorted by categories is in the top right sidebar part, named “Table of contents“.

Search – search field is right next to the menu on the top.

For start, a list of recently published posts can be used – it is below the category list, near the bottom on the right hand side.

Bid spilling – 🙂   English is not my mother tongue. I try my best, but if you find some spelling, or grammar errors, or poor sentence construction – please let me know, it will be corrected.

Product links – some pages contain links with products that the site’s author finds to be a good, quality choice. Links are usually made to open an Amazon.com website search window, with pre-defined search querries. There, visitors can see what the products look like and compare the prices. Bike Gremlin uses Amazon affiliate program. This means, if visitors buy products using a link from this site, the price is the same as if going directly to Amazon.com, but Bike Gremlin gets a small donation from Amazon. This helps pay for hosting, domain and bikegremlin.com website security.
