For the non-mechanical person that I am, this course certainly gave me some tips and tricks into now not always having to take my bike to the shop... Well worth it and I recommend it.

Took a great 3-hour bike maintenance class with Steve. Learned so much about how gears and brakes work. Hope to take more classes here in the future.Would only mention this is a foundational knowledge class. It prioritised teaching a full understanding of the mechanical workings of the bike but I'd been hoping for a bit more doing. Mostly exposition with interludes to experience adjusting the gears and brakes and checking the chain stretch. We watched him change a tire in the last 5 minutes but didn't do it ourselves, and patching a tire isn't covered.Steve was super knowledgeable and answered everyone's questions along the way. We moved between everyone's bikes looking at different types of brakes and gear sets.

I should have done this course years ago. An absolute joy to be able to enjoy learning about bike care by bike lovers more concern ed about how you take care of the machine than selling you a product. Thanks very much.

Did the beginners maintenance course with Ben and Steve, learned a lot and really recommend this to anyone else who rides frequently, wants to understand more about bike mechanics, and is keen to be more self sufficient. Will be signing up for the more advanced training later on!

Fantastic short course.Both Ben & Steve are very friendly, engaging and make everyone feel at ease.Very relaxed atmosphere and everyone felt comfortable to ask the dumb questions.Highly recommend for anyone who wants to learn some basic and not some basic mechanical knowledge about bike maintenance and component functionality.

I took the basic bike maintenance course. 3 packed-in hours looking at gears, brakes, cleaning, and general mechanics of a bicycle. This course is a must-do for anyone that wants to get the most out of their bike. Ben and Steve were amicable and knowledgeable. I strongly recommend them!

Did the basic bicycle course this Saturday and didn’t know what to expect. Ben and Steve were great, made the entire experience well worth it. We had 9 people in my group, all from different cycle requirements. I knew very little about my road bike but found out plenty of useful information and got to do it on your own bike. Fitted a new chain as well. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to know a bit more about how to adjust parts in your bicycle. Going back for an advanced course.

I attended the Bike Maintenance course run by 1226 Bikes on 27/8/22 and found it to be well conducted, educational, fun and inspiring. Presenters, Steve and Ben, shared the presenting and assisting with practical application of the lessons taught. They also made sure that they spoke in language appropriate to the knowledge and experience of participants. Whilst having knowledge far in excess of most participants, Steve and Ben, were not patronising and did not talk down to participants.I have no hesitation in recommending this course as a great introduction to maintaining bicycles.

A brilliant beginners' bike maintenance course. I was going into the three-hour course with a VERY low base of knowledge (I cannot understate how ignorant I am) but Ben and Steve were incredibly patient, tailoring the delivery of information in such a way that I didn't get left behind, but without dragging the rest of the class down. They were kind and patient in providing me extra assistance in the practical component of the course and were incredibly affirming. I learned a lot and I actually now feel quite confident to manage any little niggles or issues which come up while I'm riding. I will definitely go back to 1226 Bikes for any servicing, maintenance or parts I need and can wholeheartedly recommend their expertise, knowledge, teaching and welcome. If you know even a little about bikes, or ride bikes at all, the course is great to do!

Ben and Steve were welcoming, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. They answered all the questions I asked. They even replaced the chain and the rear gears on my bike without charging for the labour. Maximum of 10 people attend the class. It was great to see the diversity, some people were more knowledgeable than the others. In 3 hours lots of basic things like, cleaning chain, changing tyres, hydraulic brake pads, limiting gears, greasing, etc were covered. I will definitely be going again to learn the advanced course. Strongly recommend anyone to attend if you would like to be more confident when fixing your bike.

Did the 3 hour beginner course and it was excellent, small group but all the concepts were explained very simply with excellent examples and demonstrations on our own bikes. Can't wait for the advanced course.

I attended the course yesterday. It provided a great wealth of information on bicycle maintenance. I would not hesitate in recommending the course. I thought it was great value for money.

Did the basic maintenance course and learned heaps in 3 hours. Hands on course, working on your own bike. Why pay for a bike service when you can learn to do it yourself for the same price. Great stuff lads, keep up the good work.

Attended the 1226 Basic Maintenance course last night! It was a great evening with lots of information shared & practical work on our own bikes! As a mechanical novice I learnt heaps & feel more confident to be able to maintain my 3 high end bikes! Steve & Ben the flower pot men were first class! Very supportive & encouraging with a few laughs along the way! Highly recommend this course! Mark Loft

A great place to start your upskilling in bike maintenance. Both Ben and Steve were super knowledgeable as they build and fix all sorts of bikes. If you want to learn how to clean and replace chains or brake pads and tune your gears then this is the place to come. Excellent value for 3 hours. No qn is too silly, everything is explained ( and reinforced as you get to do most of it on your own bike). Highly recommend. 🚴‍♂️

Highly recommend the maintenance course. I was an absolute novice in understanding my bike, and Ben and Steve took the time to demonstrate and teach everyone in the group. great encouragement and support, lots of laughs, all questions answered and feel more confident with my bike maintenance. Have a go, really if i can do it, anyone can

I attended the basic bike maintenance course and was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it - Ben and Steve created a friendly welcoming environment for all participants and encouraged people to interact with each other (which they did). There were about 40% girls & 60% guys of ages from 25-60. I filled in the gaps of my knowledge through watching a demo, then applying the skills to my own bike, plus got answers to any questions I or others asked. Thoroughly recommend without hesitation.

Amazing course ! Ben and the team has great passion for bikes and this comes through in the class. They took us through the basics and the ability to self diagnose issues on my bike that would be very helpful when stuck in on a trail.

I did the bike maintenance course with 1226 and couldn't recommend it more highly for anyone like me wanting to learn the basics about servicing your own bike. Really great guys who covered a range of topics and were extremely forthcoming with their knowledge. I had been looking for a course like this for ages and I'm really glad I did it. In the space of a few hours I'm now confident tackling basic maintenance tasks myself that I didn't properly understand before!

I did the 3 hours maintenance workshop with these guys and I had a great time while learning the basics (and not only) on how to maintain your bike so it is safe and tuned for the next ride. The best part of it is that you get to practice and fix your own bike! The workshop is structured so that Steve and Ben first explain a topic and then everyone gets to get his or her hands dirty on the bike they brought. And if there is an issue, it gets solved right away!Basically, for less than the cost of a service, you get your bike checked and learn how to do it yourself!

Did the bike maintenance course with these guys and really recommend it. Great presenters, very knowledgeable and I walked away with the knowledge to tune up my own bike. Extremely good value for the price, thanks 1226!
