This workshop teaches participants how to assess the condition of all parts of their bike, how to keep it clean and lubricated, and will provide an overview of basic tune up skills. Each skill will be reviewed by a mechanic, then participants will practice on their own bike with feedback. No previous experience in bike repair or maintenance is required. Topics to be reviewed include Air, brakes, chain, shifting, quick releases, cleaning and lubrication.
Contact us in advance if you need to borrow a bike for the workshop.
