Who We Are?
The Bicycle Maintenance Guide app started as an idea in 2016 when Ian, our Founder, returned to cycling after being away from the sport for 5 years.
On his return he was shocked by how much the technology had moved on in those 5 years. For example, road bikes were now being fitted with hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless tyres and electric gears! Gravel bikes and e-bikes were also starting to become very popular.
It was whilst out riding that the idea of a bike repair app which covers every discipline and can be accessible without an internet connection came to him. Over the next 18 months Ian teamed up with our developer, Paul, and started making the Bicycle Maintenance Guide app.
The Bicycle Maintenance Guide app has now been updated and improved several times and now has everything you need and more to maintain and repair your bike. All things road bikes, MTB’s, gravel bikes and E-bikes are covered.
The app is made up of 60 videos containing over 7.5 hours of footage, 180+ images, over 130 sections and 50,000 words.
The Bicycle Maintenance Guide app is a complete guide to bicycle repairs, shown and instructed by two world class bike mechanics, Chuck Buckley and Mike Rawson.
Chuck was the Head Mechanic of a UK Pro Team, Madison Genesis, and now runs his own bike shop in Auckland, New Zealand.
Mike Rawson was Team GB’s Bike Mechanic for 7 years, in which time he covered the Rio Olympics, World Championships and many European stage stages. He is now a Senior Technician at a high end bicycle company, that we all know.
Never Get Stuck At The Roadside Again
One of the main selling points and benefits of the app is that the majority of its content can be accessed with no internet connection. Meaning, even if you’re out in the sticks with no signal you can still use the app to repair your bike and get you home.
Quality and Trusted Content
The app provides an easy way to navigate to a specific fault or repair on your bicycle. The videos are made by current professional bicycle mechanics to ensure the material is accurate, informative and relevant.
The videos within the app are professionally filmed and edited in such a way that they are engaging, whilst being highly informative and with a high level of attention to detail. The purpose of this app is to give you the user the knowledge and confidence to maintain your own bicycle.
