Have a question?
I have created a forum where you can come for advice on bicycle mechanics. The main purpose is to have a place I can answer any questions you might have. Also you can post up any tips or projects or just about anything you want to share regarding bikes.
You can access the forum from any page on the blog. The link is located on the right-hand side of the page "Benno's Bicycle Service Garage".

As always contact me if you have any questions or suggestions. Is there something that you would like to see happen in 2013?? Remember this is just an update, the full monty will be posted shortly (and continually updated). Your input is greatly appreciated and I have really loved all the great feedback over the years.
