No matter what kind of bike you ride, it's a good idea to know how to do basic maintenance and repair. One of the best skills to learn early is how to change a tire. While a 3-speed bike uses a different shifting system than most road bikes, you don't need to worry about that when you change a tire. So, whether your bike is a mountain bike, road bike or 3-speed cruiser, this skill will save you a trip to the repair shop, or maybe even from getting stranded on a lonely road.
