Wikipedia for Bicycle Mechanics

One of the goals of this blog is to provide a plethora of bicycle mechanic information all at your fingertips...

But what if other bicycle mechanics could add additional information that they feel other bicycle mechanics could use? The result would be a bit like Wikipedia. The problem with Wikipedia (cough cough Crapipedia) is that any amateur can add information on there which is incorrect or potentially dangerous...

Or worse, the information on there is accurate and general knowledge, but some asshole shows up and deletes it. (I know because I've tried adding technical info to Wikipedia and there's always some asshole who shows up and deletes it. Wikipedia is a complete waste of time.)

Thus if you are a bicycle mechanic yourself, and you've come across a technique, a tool or whatever you think other bike mechanics would benefit from please email me and I shall post it for you.
