New tires make a huge difference and adjusting spokes and fixing wheels takes time bike partsand skill. There are plenty of jobs that are easy enough that you or I can do ourselves but also many jobs that I would just prefer to bring my bike into the shop for and have a skilled bike mechanic, that has spent many hours working on bikes, work on.

Handle bar tape is not problem. Changing a tire or inner tube is easier on the front wheel than on the real, but is still not difficult. Brake and gear cables are not too bad, but the adjustments can get tricky. Taking the handlebars or front fork off can be a problem if you don't do it right.

At any rate, if you have the space and work on your bicycle much at all a bike work stand is great to have. You may also need some special tools (metric wenches, etc.) and if you do a fair amount of repairs a reference manual can also come in handy.

You can probably get most of what you need for repairs and maintenance at your local bike shop, but if you either can't find what you need there or would just rather order online and be off to your next ride, here are some good online bicycle parts references (all in one place!).
