I think I can now say that I am an experienced rider and I wouldn't go as far as to say "bike mechanic," more like a bike fixer-upper since I have never actually been paid, in money, to do it. I currently don't own a car so my bicycle is my main form of transportation which means that it always then must be in perfect working order; something I have been working on achieving over the past 3 years.

comment Why do cyclists prefer messenger bags over backpacks?
Also Chrome makes messenger bags with a buckle on them which I think is the way to go since you don't have to lift it over your head. With a helmet on that could get a little tricky.

comment Rear Derailleur Curled Up
I bet you just have to adjust the chain length to be the right size.

comment Rear derailleur and front shifter are not indexing “together”?
Does the derailleur move enough to the left and the right to hit the sprockets? Does it move freely? It could have been that it was improperly adjusted and you just knocked something loose. Without looking at it I can not tell from here.
