Courses

Come and learn how to fix your bike!

These courses have been designed to tackle the most common faults with bikes and are aimed at people who are new to bike maintenance. The pace is relaxed, enabling lots of time for questions and classes are limited to just 4 to ensure everyone is well supported.

They are a great stepping stone to enable users to make more full use of our Bring Your Own Bike sessions that run every Wednesday – giving participants a chance to consolidate and grow their learning in a supportive environment.

  • Brake maintenance- How to index your gear.
  • How to maintain your drivechain and when to replace it.

Please note, we will always prefer to work on your own bike as this is most empowering for the learning. Occasionally however, we may discover an existing fault which we do not have time to correct in the course and so to enable a full experience for all our learners we have our own bikes that you can learn on.

Short Courses

Our Short Courses will focus on one of three topics:

* Gears

Gears are often an area people experience real difficulties. We will demystify the gears, showing you how to set limits, replace cables and master indexing to get crisp shifting every time. Replacement cables included if needed. Not suitable for electric shifting.

* Brakes

Here we learn how to maintain our brakes and go through how to replace cables and pads. On hydraulic systems, we cover pad replacement, how to look after you rotors, and setting up callipers. Please note that we do not cover bleeding in this course. If needed, replacement cables are included.

* Puncture repair + M- Check

Being able to confidently fix a puncture is a great skill to have. Even if this is something you are comfortable with participants often pick up a tip or two to make the job quicker, easier and cleaner! We will also cover the M-Check – an accessible way to check your bike for existing faults, as well as help staying alert for developing issues before they become a problem.
