Thanks for the comment - this is always useful for us to hear! A couple of resources you may find useful: 1) when Covid fades, MEC runs pretty good 100 and 200 level intro to bike mechanics courses, starting with learning basics like fixing a flat or adjusting your derailleur, and going on from there. 2) Park Tools' website is a deep resource full of how-to content, from basic to complex, and they've recently added a ton of really well-produced videos as well. 3) Lenard Zinn wrote a book called 'Zinn and the art of bicycle maintenance' that I bought when I was just getting into riding seriously. It's full of explanations and illustrations - very good for the new rider/mechanic. It's been re-released and modernized several times. Highly recommend it. 4) We will continue to think/consider what we can do to create better resources for newer riders. So much to do!
