Since Regina has worn out another chain and my mountain bike needs one as well, I've started thinking it would be nice to not have to pay someone to replace chains or head bearings.

What tools do you have for working on your bikes and where do you draw the line on maintenance?

It's a bike...there's nothing you can't do yourself. A simple chain breaker is less than $10 on Amazon...

I do everything on mine. Those multi-tools that everyone has now usually have a chain breaker on them. Just buy some pins from the bike store or online for the chain styles you have and keep them on hand.

Newer bikes have different tools than mine uses. I have a crank installer/extractor tool, crankset socket, freehub and wheel sockets, freewheel pin spanner, spoke wrenches, cone wrenches for wheel bearings, etc.

Keep this link handy as well: http://www.loosescrews.com/ They have lots of old and odd-ball parts in case you find yourself searching.
