Breaking Away

Factual error: When Dave is "true"ing his wheel, he adjusts one spoke with 3 full turns. That wheel would not be rideable after that much adjustment on one spoke.

Continuity mistake: In one of the shots where Dave Stoller is chasing after the girl to return her notebook, we see him riding his bike in front of a building. In the next shot he is riding in front of the same building, going in the other direction.
