I love to teach my son how to ride and repair stuffs the old fashion way. Here I will share some of our cheap DIY projects and repairs. I will also share some of my experience as a biker and as a pro mechanic. I am not a mechanic anymore but I still do repairs but mostly for my own machineries and this is why I try to keep everything easy and cheap. I also don't race anymore but I still love riding up the mountains where there is little or no help and all I can rely on is my small tool pouch and my monkey repair skills to bring me home whenever my bike or my friends bike breaks down.

If you are a tech-wiz or some kind of high-tech repair guru who likes spending too much $$$s buying stuffs and spends most of your time at a coffee shop posing your best biker battle gear clown costume and talking how great a biker you are then THIS IS NOT FOR YOU... Here we seriously ride our bikes and we try to keep everything simple, easy and cheap. Most of what I will share here are intended for riders who usually break their bikes to peices and may not be needed by other bikers.

I will also be sharing some cheap ways how I repaired my cars and computers. And for laughs, I will also add some weird / funny / odd stuffs that I or we did that worked and didn't work. Sorry about this blog's style, set-up or whatever you may call it, I'm an old school biker and its easier for me wrenching cars and bikes than typing on my keyboard...

homemade swing

It was another Sunday and my son came with me to our garage to work on some of his bikes. Before we left our house, two of his friends came to invite my him to go to a carnival but he refused because he really wanted to finish some of his repair projects. It was too hot and humid to seriously work so I decided to make him a homemade swing. First I hanged a car tire but he got bored easily, then I tried using a big 4WD tire but that too was boring. Since he like bikes, I hanged my grocery bicycle and folding step-chair and those were fun! We spent too much time playing that it was too late to work so we basically spent all afternoon hanging more crazier stuffs. We went home happy and exhausted but we really had a blast that day!
swings are not only for kids... hahaha!

I had so much fun that I bruised my "behind" !
