Bike Maintenance Courses

'What was I so worried about?  I could do the basics but always left my bike into the shop for anything else because I was scared to make it worse.  I reckon I'd have a go at nearly anything after the full day course'

- Adrian

Course Summary

We know that bike maintenance can seem daunting sometimes and fear of making things worse often drives people towards the bike shop.  The fact is that most maintenance jobs can be done simply and quickly without the need for great expense or stress.  Our bike maintenance courses are designed to teach you all you'll need to know to keep your pride and joy running as sweetly as the day you bought it.  Ian has been stripping and rebuilding bikes for himself and various shops for over twenty years and he just loves passing on his knowledge and skills from something as easy as fixing a puncture to as complicated as totally stripping and rebuilding your bike.

Full Day 'More Maintenance Course'

This course covers all the fixes from the trail maintenance course but then takes it a step further to those bits that can seem like a real mystery!  Bleeding brakes, replacing cassettes and bottom brackets, freehub issues, headset greasing and any other burning issues you've been ignoring hoping they fix themselves.

 

This course is perfect for anyone who wants to become totally self sufficient at repairing their own pride and joy.  It's also ideal for any organisation who have a fleet of bikes and want to learn how to specifically look after their own machines.  Ian can deliver this at your premises if it suits and will bring along all necessary stands and tools.

 

If you want to bring any components with you to be fitted then bring them along with you.


Please clean your bike thoroughly before attending, it's much better to work on a clean bike and it'll end the day like new!
