That's right, howtofixbikes on Facebook is now a group. I've been a member of Facebook for a little while now and find that it is a great way to make contacts and share ideas. Hence the creation of the "HOWTOFIXBIKES.CA" group.

Come join us to share, rant, rave and post pictures of your ride with all the other readers of this bicycle repair blog. I hope to make this a true international bicycle exchange of ideas. The combination of this blog and the group should make for some interesting exchanges. Don't be shy and post your stuff, ask questions and have fun. I'll be there at least once a day to maintain the place and keep you posted on the latest here.

Come and join us today here: http://www.facebook.com/reqs.php#/group.php?gid=49048827216

You can also contact me directly at: howtofixbikes@gmail.com

See you there soon, Godspeed.

Gerry :)

Dave, figure what your time is worth ( per hour)and charge accordingly. I would charge a flat fee for fixing everything on the bike based on an average time that it takes to do it.

Hello Gerry, I have Sram x9 thumb shifters on my MTB. When I shift, the thumb shifter goes slack and stays in the down position. I have to manually lift it back up to shift again. Any ideas?

my back wheel is loose & rattling from side to side. it looks broken, rather than in need of tightening up.

i'm not very good at describing it. is there somewhere i can post a photo instead?

Your axle is either loose at the bearing cups or broken inside your hub.
