Are you tired of searching the web to find your solution? Most web sites are not well structured and have too much text to read before finding your solution. Then you go to the garage to fix your bike and realize you have forgotten half of what you have read online. Bike Repair on your iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad or Android device is the solution. You have your reference with you all the time.I really like the idea of having bike repair information on a tablet or smartphone. Why?

This is a great app, and for the price well worth it.
