Rear Derailer

Video about how a rear derailer works. After that a video about how to adjust it so it works perfectly. This can be a solution when the chain does not go all the way up and down the cogwheel Or when a rattling sound is heard while biking.

Front derailer

These 2 videos are about the front derailer. To understand it watch the first video, to merely adjust it watcht the second one.

Shimano hub gears

If you have a shimano hub shift system, watch this. We couldn’t find a good video about it so ask your kökösmästare when you have this system if it is still unclear. The first video is for a 3 speed, the second video for a 7 speed

Flat tire

How to fix a flat tire. Use this order, take off the wheel, take out and replace the inner tire OR fix the inner tire.

Brakes

Your break cable needs to be replaced? Watch here to learn how do that.

How to adjust your breaks when they hit the rim or when the brake power is not sufficient, watch when your wheel does not smoothly rotate and\or when you replace the brake pads. For various break systems, click on your system at 10-second video mark. Remember that the wheel has to be straight as well. Look at the next section how to accomplish this.

Is your wheel wobbly? Here we have a video that explains how spokes work together and how to make your wheel straight (true) again. We have spoke wrenches at cyckelköket. Ask one of the köksmästare for one. We also have a truing stand.

Wheel trueing

Determine cassette/freewheel and removal

A video to determine if you have a freewheel or casset rear cog and how to take them off. You want to do this when the rear cogs are worn out or the teeth are damaged. This can cause the chain to skip while you are biking even though your rear derailer is correctly set.

Chain

A video about how to replace and size your chain. For cheap chains, check out Biltema.se. Remember there are single speed chains used for if you have a rear-wheel with one cog (even tho that might have a 3 gear system) and you have chains for a 6, 7 or 8-speed cog

Crank

A video about how to determine which crank system you have. The crank is the metal arm that attaches to the pedals where you put your feet on one side, and it attaches to the bottom bracket on the other side. There are various systems, this video guides you to the system you have and then has specific videos about how to take them off for each system.

Bottom brackets

A video about bottom brackets, the thing where the pedal crank attach to and go through the frame. These need to be replaced when the pedal arms wobble or when they make weird sounds. At Biltema they have new ones which would fit most situations. This video determines which bottom bracket system you have and then you can continue with the right video about your specific bottom bracket. At Cyckelköket we have the most common tools available for this.

Handle bars and grips

Stems

Two videos about the handlebar stem, the end that goes through the frame and where the handlebar attaches to. There are two systems, threadless most commonly used on mountain bikes or quill stems, these are most common for other types of bikes.
