I am looking for a bike mechanic who is willing to teach me some rather in-depth bike maintenance.
The project:I have a long wheelbase recumbent. After 5000 miles of riding, I started to feel a lot of resistance in the drive system, so I decided to try taking it apart. I have gotten it mostly dismantled, but I keep running into hurdles that I cannot get around and parts that will not come apart but are supposed to.What I am needing is somebody who can teach, help me get around the hurdles, and help me evaluate the components to figure out which ones are worn out and which are together.I’m willing to pay you for you time, and we can make arrangements as to when to meet. My ideal would be next Sunday starting midmorning, but the bike has been dismantled for months and I can go a bit longer with it in pieces.I’m near the Mopac and William Cannon intersection. Bike accessible if you can brave Brodie or William Cannon (which I do regularly), but on the fringe of the city.
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
