What kind of learner are you? I am a fairly slow one! haha Seriously though, I am very hands on when it comes to figuring stuff out. I'll look at all the parts, maybe watch a video on FaceTube and give it a try. There are some excellent videos online about how to do almost anything to your bike. I like the Park Tool channel. If you're not afraid to tinker with something and careful enough not to do anything unsafe, just dive in and figure it out. Plenty of us can help bail you out if you get stuck.
