I've been riding and fixing bikes with varying levels of success since I was knee high to a grasshopper.

These days most of my cycling is urban commuting and road riding, but I do manage to take my duallie out for a blat around the trails every once in a while.

comment How do you adjust the set-up of road bike brakes for women with small hands
This may end up being the solution we need to go for, but I'm keen to see what other options there are. This would be a fairly expensive modification to the bike.

comment How to tighten a brake?
I'd note that this adjustment is only really useful for moving one pad closer while moving the other further away. You need to adjust the brake cable to move both pads closer or further away.

You can usually get away with not using the nut at all, so you may want to try that.

comment How to do a track stand?
Yep, this does still work on a freewheel. In fact I haven't ever tried it on a fixie. The trick when learning is that uphill bit that allows you to roll back by releasing the pressure. As you get better, you can do it on the flat by using the small uphill from the road's camber.
