Consulting / Advice / Help

On this website (and BikeGremlin YouTube channel) I give complete information and tutorials about bicycles, mechanics and cycling in general. I share all the knowledge completely free and don’t plan on charging for it.

In addition to that (or thanks to that), a lot of people call me on the phone, or write using e-mail, Viber, Facebook (and other social networks). Unfortunately, I work a lot and have very little free time. Also: my hands are greasy! 🙂 Every time a phone rings, I need to stop what I’m doing, wipe my hands, take the phone and answer.

There’s more and more work. I have never refused to give advice and help. In order to be able to do that in the future, we’ll have to get organized, together. 🙂

1. How to get free BikeGremlin help or advice?

There are several ways available, whichever you prefer:

  • The best place is probably ( forum for Serbocroatian) – there I actively participate under “Bike Gremlin” username. Also, many other experts offer help and advice there, so You benefit from getting 2nd opinions. You are also most likely to get a timely response (within a day or two), at least from other knowledgeable members, even if I don’t manage.
  • Use the website search – it is very good (Google powered) – just enter what you want to know. I have already answered most of the questions.
BikeGremlin website search - powered by Google! :)

This way the questions and answers will be public, helping anyone with a similar problem/question.

In separate articles I explained:

Response time is about a week – i.e. when I find the time, in order: first answering the first asked questions (that haven’t yet been answered). There’s less rush in the winter months, so then You can expect a faster response.

I’m planning on keeping this free.

2. Urgent, right away, today for today

Use the BikeGremlin forum:

I can’t promise any deadlines, but I do my best to respond as promptly as I can.

To explain:

I like sharing knowledge and helping people (when I’m in a position to do so). To reduce the number of “urgent” help/advice requests, I had created a portal for paid priority support.

That didn’t feel right. There are people who really haven’t got any money (or can’t pay via the Internet), but really need help and advice. There must be a better way to “filter” requests! That is where the extra 5 minutes needed to register and post a forum question come in.

Out of all the people who post questions on social networks (Instagram, YouTube, Facebook etc.), only about 1% bother to register and post their question on the forum. That’s a great way to filter those who really want to hear what I have to say, so I don’t mind taking the time to do it.

What is a forum, and how and why did I build it?
