Bicycle Hacking.

Maintaining, enhancing and repairing bikes; also the creation of new bikes from recycled ones.

This is a short episode where I explain how to service your bicycle freewheel if it's misbehaving. My pedals were turning around when I walked the bike, and they ought to be stationary. A quick dose of chain oil in the freewheel fixed the problem. Click the image to see photos showing how to do this.
