Bike repair resources

Volunteer mechanics are the key to Freewheels Houston’s ability to deliver safe, reliable used bicycles to refugees, immigrants and veterans emerging from homelessness.

Right now, we are seeking people who already know how to work on bikes to join us at Freewheels for our repair workdays. We’ve equipped our shop with tools and parts to accomplish most repairs.

Freewheels is open on Friday and Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon. Click here to register for a workday.

When you first arrive, experienced volunteers will show you around the shop, go over our safety policies and engage in conversation to determine how best you can help get bikes ready for our customers.

Freewheels follows public health advisories and requires social distancing and wearing masks. These measures limit our ability to conduct classes and one-on-one training sessions.

Training resources

After your initial onboarding conversation, Freewheels will help you improve your bike repair skills through online resources, printed materials and hands-on training. We provide training and classes when available based on availability of teachers and public health advisories.

We have several bike repair books in the shop. If you want to buy one, our top recommendation is The Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair, published by Park Tool and available on Amazon and at many bike shops.

Bike repair checklist

Freewheels relies on a checklist to track progress on bike repair projects. If you have questions, please ask an experienced volunteer. If you have suggestions, please let us know.

Videos

YouTube has many videos on bike repair. Here are links to some of them. If you find another video that’s helpful, please let us know and we will add it to the playlist.

The majority of front shifting problems can be solved with basic adjustments to the limit screws and index setting of the front derailleur system. In this video we'll show you how to properly set up and adjust your front derailleur to eliminate rub, noise, slow shifting, and inaccessible gears.
