I have been part of the Biketutor gang long enough to know that we have some pretty slick people here. I wanted to start a forum for everybody to share a tip or trick or a little known secret that we all may be able to use that has to do with bicycles of course !
So I will start with one of my little tips on how to make your bike a truing stand on the fly, this works great for most any bike to keep your wheels in check for about the cost of a spoke wrench. A couple plastic spoons or popsickle sticks and a couple rubber bands.

Keep those screws and socket bolts looking sweet and rust free for a long time by applying lubricant to them with a cotton swab !

Or I've found vaseline is very good in bolt heads to prevent rust.

I posted this on my Specialized Allez Epic Thread but thought it would be a nice tip for this thread too. How to deal with pesky light scuffs and scratches on your treasured steed

Sick of a tight seatpost? do something about it! especially if you have new one and want o keep it that way. I did forget to mention in the video that the ball hone comes in different grits like sand paper does. I use the 80 and 120 grit, mostly the 120. If you start with the 80 grit always finish with the 120grit.

Know someone with a Honda Goldwing that does his own maintenance?
If so, see if he has any spare Spectro Full Synthetic Differential Gear Lube available...
The container contains more than one Differential fill-up...

It is translucent Pink in color, The lubrication qualities are excellent and far exceed what we'd need on our 'two wheels'.

I put the remaining in an old fashioned plunger oil can that I restored, marrying old technology with new.
