#HallOfFrame - Moth Attack - USA LOGO

“Before there were frames, there was a moth attack. Or at least a moth infestation one morning in the Los Angeles kitchen of Megan Dean. It was one of those situations where one could either get annoyed or motivated, and Megan choose the latter.
Launching Moth Attack after perfecting her skills with master frame builder Koichi Yamaguchi, she now applies this knowledge to lugged and fillet brazed steel frame sets.
Each one custom made with purpose, fit and love in mind.”

“Tool engagement is an important and overlooked basic mechanical skill that will save you from the frustration of stripped bolts and damaged tools. The principle is simple: take the time to make sure your tools are fully and securely engaged with the part you are adjusting before applying any pressure.
If necessary, modify your hand position to hold the tool in place where it meets the bike while applying pressure to the lever with your other hand.”

#MondayMechanics - Bikers-United - Treadly LOGO low

“Removable valve cores can be incredibly useful for installing some cheeky tubeless sealant to prevent punctures or valve extensions for those with deeper-than-the-ocean rims, but they can also ruin your day! If you’ve ever had to fix a flat mid-ride, only to find your new tube is going down ever-so-slowly, don’t be so hasty to get fed up and pull the thing off to check for punctures – it might just be your core.
Try to turn the middle section of your valve (just below the part you’d normally undo to pump the tube up) clockwise to tighten it, and if it moves at all you may have just fixed your “flat” without so much as removing a wheel. Pump back up to pressure and ride away!”

“There are a lot of great frames out there. You can buy a quality frame off the peg for a few hundred pounds and there are some absolute masterpieces in carbon fiber costing many thousands. So what is the point of a frame builder?
What Dear Susan does is different. Dear Susan applies his creative and enquiring spirit to making bikes more useful and above all more fun.
Having a good understanding of the engineering demands of different structures and materials is the baseline, but to keep it interesting you need to use this knowledge to make something new and exciting, to make something that is truly life enhancing in the way that only bicycles can be.”

#MondayMechanics - Bikers-United - Equilibrio urbano LOGO

“Safety in the city: Each cycling terrain needs a specific kind of bicycle, but sometimes we go too far trying to find the perfect bike.
On the other hand, in the city many people use bicycles that aren’t adapt to urban terrain, thinking that quality is unnecessary and that the bikes can easily be damaged or stolen.
Unfortunately cycling in urban areas is not always easy, due to poor road surfaces, cobbled stones, pot holes, slippery tram lines or drain covers etc.
One simple solution is to use a bicycle that permits the use of a larger tyre like the “Baloon”, available in 700×52 and 26” x 2.10. This gives more surface traction and having more air in the tyre gives a little suspension and therefore a more comfortable ride!”

“Every bike has some kind of bearings. It’s also very common that people ignore badly working bearings in their bikes and notice them just when the mechanic has told them.
There’s many kind of bearings, but they all have the same basic idea, to make sure that things roll smoothly with as less friction as possible.
They all need some grease to work well and it’s very important that they are just on the right tightness – not too loose when they will wobble or too tight when they will get stuck.
When good quality bearings are well serviced, they can work perfectly over decades!

But the most important of all, love your bike and show it.
When your love is sincere, you will also notice all his/her mechanical needs easily.”
