Do you tip a bike mechanic?
You do not have to tip a bike mechanic since their shop pays them a wage. However, tipping for high-quality work is a thoughtful gesture. The rule of thumb is to tip $5-$10 for routine work or 15%-20% of a major repair cost, though some cases may call for no tip at all.
Why is it hard to pedal my bike?
A bike is hard to pedal because it’s in the incorrect gear for the terrain or because of excessive friction. Changing to a smaller gear or reducing the friction makes riding easier. The cause of friction can be brake pads rubbing against the rim or disc, insufficient chain lubrication or low tire pressure.
Is it worth fixing up an old bike?
A department store quality bike is almost never a good repair investment. If the integrity of the frame is compromised, it’s time for a new bike. If the frame is bent, cracked, rusted through, has broken welds, a stuck seatpost or bottom bracket, it’s time for it to be retired.
How often should I get my bike tuned up?
No matter how often you ride you should give your bike a tune-up at least once a year. Today we’ll learn how to tune up your bike, which I’d recommend doing at least once a year, or even every few months if you ride every day.
How long does it take to service a bicycle?
One to two days, in most cases. We know you’d rather be riding your bike than have it sitting in the workshop for days.
What is the cheapest way to ship a bicycle?
The best, cheapest way to ship BIKES is FedEx Ground 3-Day. You can ship a bike box with bike plus maybe 30 lbs of luggage, etc., for about *$45* across the USA. As for SKIS, there’s only one way to go: USPS Priority. You can ship skis across the US for about $10-25 this way.
How much does it cost to check a bike?
The eight major U.S.-based airlines we researched charge bike-specific fees ranging from $0-$150, sometimes in addition to standard bag fees, and may tack on oversize and overweight fees as well. Depending on your carrier and destination, flying with a bike could cost as little as $30 or as much as $300 each way.
How do you fly with a bike?
Bicycles will be accepted in a hard-sided, padded case designed for bicycles. If not in a hard-sided case, bikes will be accepted with the handle bars secured sideways and pedals removed. The bicycle must also be encased in plastic foam, a cardboard box (domestic flights only), or similar material to prevent damage.
