The repair manual tells what to do, but often not how to do it.
Noolis, consider sponsoring a pizza & repair party at your place (or another's place, but you host). Invite stromtroopers to bring tools, bring their bikes that need work, and invite someone who'll show you how to do your jobs. People share tools, share labor, share knowledge, and share the lunch you provide.
"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.
"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
Marcus Tullius Cicero
