Fix your bike on the go with Bike Repair

One of the big strengths of the App Store is its ability to provide users with concise and simple information from the Web in a neat iOS package. The latest is from Quebec-based Atomic Software, which wants to help you repair your bike while on the road.

The logically-named Bike Repair, available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, provides users with a step-by-step guide to most common bicycle issues. Slipped chain? Need to change a tire? The app asks riders to select what part of the bike they’re having an issue with, then offers a variety of symptoms to choose from.

The instructions include simple explanations of the solution, along with several high-quality photographs to show you exactly where and how you need to tighten that bolt. According to Atomic Software, no special tools (beyond a basic bike kit) are needed for any of these repairs.

Bike Repair is available for $2 on the App Store and requires a device running iOS 3.0 or later.
