>>1613419>not worth doing in terms of bicycle maintenance?
its slightly more difficult but not impossable,
I have worked on such bikes without removeing the shift cable or dynamo hubs eletrical wire, only being carefull not to twist or strech the cables too far.
just replacing tires does not require many special bicycle tools even in this case.
its easy and in most cases preferable to use a plastic tire lever,
but if your careful the metal tires levers do just fine, even a flat blade cabinet screw driver will do.
or your bare hands if you have good strength and technique, no risk of rim or tire damage here, just be watch out for rusty wire bead lmao.
but yea @ minimum wage or doing it your self its not worth it,
the only thing you get out of it is to learn some skills and at least know how well the job was done.
a professional bike mechanic does not have skin in the game, maybe reputation or liability but once the bike is out of their doors they dont care,
good enough is a very broad spectrum.
