We hope you enjoyed this month’s Bike Shop theme and Skill Builder series. As with all of our Skill Builder sets, we’ll continue to add content going forward, and we always have great ongoing bike coverage under our Bicycles content category.

Thanks to Chris Nodder and to RadBrad and KoolKat of Atomic Zombie for helping us out. To end the month, we thought it would be fun to give out a couple of copies of Chris’ Little Book of Bike Boo Boos. It’s a great guide to stow in your bike bag or backpack when you hit the trail.

Chris gave us two copies to give away. To be eligible for the drawing, all you have to do is leave a question about biking, bike repair and maintenance in the comments below. And, as always, readers can answer question posed by other readers and be eligible for the giveaway, too. When we’re done, we’ll put together a little crowdsourced bike FAQ with the content we gather. Maybe we can even get Chris in here to answer some questions.

The eligible comment period will run until Monday midnight PDT. Winners will be announced on Tuesday. Good luck!
