What’s Your Least Favorite Bike Maintenance Task?

Tell us about the bike maintenance task you dislike the most.

We’re now transitioning — at least in the Northern hemisphere — from bike riding season to bike maintenance season. It’s never a bad idea to spend a little bit of time in the garage while it’s cold and wet outside, giving your steel/carbon/aluminum horse a little bit of love.

That said, not all services are created equal. While someone might find brake bleeding therapeutic, others might see it as the bane of their existence. So, tell us. What is your LEAST favorite bike repair task, that you either put off, scream and fight through, or just take it to a bike tech? If you don’t see it in the list, write it in the comments.
