Published on May 8th 2022


We’ve all made mistakes when maintaining our mountain bikes, from not using the proper tools, rushing jobs or simply not being prepared, but when you're out on the trail, sometimes miles away from any help, it's important to avoid any costly or difficult to remedy mistakes to your bike to avoid the long walk of shame back to your car or home! ⏱ Timestamps ⏱ 0:00 - Intro 0:16 - The finger gauge 1:15 - MTB tyre plugs 2:19 - The frozen hand 3:00 - The loose valve core 3:45 - Bent mech hanger 4:42 - Lost bolts 5:45 - The walk of shame Useful Links: Submit your Photo and Video to us 👉 Join us at the Global Bike Festival? 👉 Check out GMBN Tech T's in the GMBN Shop 👉 Have you made any mistakes when attempting a trailside repair?
