Posted by Blake Grundman on April 12th, 2011

Now that North American gas prices are working their way towards the four dollar per gallon pricepoint, it is no surprise that people are trying to find alternatives to driving that hulking SUV from place to place.  One such alternative that also will help your personal health is riding a bike.  But what if you haven't ridden your bike in so long that it has been transformed into a barely recognizable husk of rusted metal?  As the popular phrase goes, "There's an app for that."

Bike Repair is the outstanding new instructional application from Atomic Softwares that will guide you through the process of fixing virtually any issue that could ever befall your self-powered vehicle.  As you can see in the trailer below, the tool uses full screen images, interactive directions and amazing detail to guide users through the process of getting back out onto the road.  For only $2.99, this is a tool that should be in the hands of any hardcore cyclists.  Give it a shot and sound off about it in the comments, we are curious to see what you think!
