I read somewhere about truing wheels and it said don't bother unless you are a pro, but I've just sorted my wheels out a treat. The app paid for itself straight away!

New iPhone, iPad and Android app Bike Doctor 2.0 gives cyclists easy to follow step-by-step instructions for repairing their bike. Andreas Kambanis, founder of popular London cycling blog londoncyclist.co.uk, created the app after a frustration with over-complicated bike maintenance manuals.

Bike Doctor 2.0 is designed with a focus on clear and simple instructions. The 42 guides have been tested on beginners and refined to make sure frequent pitfalls are avoided.

Common bike repairs such as punctures and squeaky brakes, as well as more advanced repairs, such as bleeding disk brakes, are all covered. The app also includes guides to avoiding punctures and completing a bike safety check.

Cyclists who use the app can save money on bike shop repairs, spend less time waiting for their bicycles to be fixed and can learn how to detect problems early on.

Andreas Kambanis said, “I nearly gave up on maintaining my bike myself, after getting frustrated with all the bike maintenance books I had read. I decided there must be more cyclists like me out there who have tried and failed to follow other guidebooks. I created Bike Doctor to be an easy to follow guide that would always be available, whether you are out cycling or at home.”

Customer reviews from the Apple App Store:
“I read somewhere about truing wheels and it said don't bother unless you are a pro, but I've just sorted my wheels out a treat. The app paid for itself straight away!”

“Great app, worth every penny, saved money on a service already!”

Bike Doctor is available now for $4.99 on the Apple App Store for the iPhone and iPad and $2.80 from the Android Play store.
