This is often a job that you might outsource to a bike shop and is packaged as a “Tune-Up” and it’s usually the most expensive super deluxe tune-up on the list, ranging from $150 to over $250 bucks!
When moving downhill, there is a large amount of pressure on the knees as they help the body slow its descent – Trekking Poles can effectively act as brakes.
Very often bikes come to me to be tuned and they are totally dirty. Washing your bike is essential – to keep things working as expected. When washing your bike, this is the time to pay attention to all your components and make sure they are tight, no cracks or anything is broken or worn and needing replaced.
I have been asked many times how I am getting so much runtime out of my GoPro cameras, so I put together a post on how I get up to 4 hours of runtime w/o having to swap batteries.
The GoPro is a very tiny action “video” camera with a very tiny sensor and a very tiny lens. It will in no way compete with a $5,000 DSLR with an equally expensive $5,000 lens attached. It’s not even going to compete with a $500 DSLR/Lens Kit. It’s just not going to happen! And by understanding the limitations, will also set acceptable expectations.
