BIKE DOCTOR – iPhone, iPad and Android Bike Maintenance App By Robb Sutton | on July 15, 2013 | Bike Maintenance, Mountain Biking, Road Biking.
A friend of ours Andreas over at London Cyclist has been hard at work perfecting his bike maintenance app Bike Doctor. As you can see by these shots below, it has become a highly refined bike maintenance app for your iOS or Android device that is separated out into mountain, road and commuter sections.
- Designed To Be Easy To Follow – Bike Doctor was created after a frustration with bike maintenance manuals that make it far more complicated to maintain your bike yourself, than it really is. We’ve written Bike Doctor in a way that even a complete beginner could follow the instructions. We’ve got pictures for each step and we’ve been careful to not skip out any important details. Basically, bike maintenance guides don’t come better than this.
- Never More Than A Few Taps Away – Bike Doctor works on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android devices. Whether you are pedalling down a mountain, on your way in to work or sat at home, you are never more than a few taps away. Whenever you have a problem with your bike, load up the app, tap the part of your bike with an issue and follow the detailed instructions.
- The End Of Squeaky Brakes – From replacing a gear cable, to truing a wheel and bleeding disk brakes. All the common bike repairs are covered, but Bike Doctor goes beyond that. There are also additional guides that show you how to avoid the most common maintenance errors, how to stop bike squeaks and prevent punctures. With Bike Doctor you’ll never put up with a squeaky bike again.
There are a lot of apps out there especially on the Android platform that really don’t deliver in terms of quality and performance. Bike Doctor really does come through on a polished, professional look that is also incredibly functional for cyclists looking to wrench on their own bikes. At Bike198, we believe that every rider should have a working knowledge on routine and necessary bike maintenance. This app is great because you can even pull it out on the trail if you run into mechanical issues. Who doesn’t have their phone with them 24/7 these days? And I don’t know about you…but I hate sifting through manuals, printing out directions or searching around all of the time. Having everything in one place sure does make things easier.
