Art of Bicycle Maintenance
Art of Bicycle Maintenance is a short poetic documentary film that follows a road bicycle on a journey from storage to a bike shop where a full time bike mechanic works on it. The Mechanics relationship with the bike is one of love, compassion, and care. A Bicycle wants to be on the road and on the trail. Without bicycle maintenance a bikes dream of the trail would not be possible. The sounds of a bike shop are not those of a mechanical factory producing for the means to an end, but that of treating a bicycle as an end in itself. Grease squeaking, wheels turning, wrenches cranking are not individual sounds, they are part of the symphony that is the Art of Bicycle Maintenance.
