Bicycle Maintenance Courses are back

Posted in in General Stuff, News, Workshop on October 5th, 2011 by schmadzie | No Comments

We’ll be calling all of you who have registered interest in the various courses we run. Next Tuesday 11th of October we will have the basic maintenance course: wheel removal, flat repair and basic safety check. This course is $60 per person prepaid.

It's not always just dudes but these guys were a good bunch learning about hub bearing overhaul

The 18th of October we’ll run the brakes course, the following will be gears. If there is enough interest I’d be happy to run wheel truing and/or bearing adjustment but it seems gears and brakes are the most popular so we might just cycle through those for the people that are interested.

If you would like to organise a group of friends or a one-on-one course tailored to your specific requirements we can organise this also.

Bike Maintenance Courses

Posted in in Commuting, Uncategorized, Workshop on July 2nd, 2011 by schmadzie | 1 Comment

Due to overwhelming demand from you and some time and enthusiasm on our part we will be running a series of bike maintenance courses.

The first will be the most basic course which involves learning the some of the names of bike parts, rear wheel removal, patching a tube and a basic safety check. I was hoping to run the first class next Tuesday the 5th of July if there were enough takers but I understand it’s late notice. The price is $60, with a minimum of 2 prticipants for the course to run and a  maximum of 4 people, start at 6:30pm and we’ll try to wrap up between 8 and 8.30pm. Non refundable-Prepayment is mandatory to secure your place. Just give us a call or email.

The 12th will be a brakes course,  the 26th will be gears, the 2nd of August will be hub overhaul, the 9th of August will be basic wheel truing and the 16th will be the pre touring trip course.

If you would like some specific on-on-one training this can be arranged after hours at $70 and can cover teaching you skills that match your aptitude or desired aptitude.
