Electronic & Mechanical
Over 3 hours we guide you through the essential principles of bicycle tuning & maintenance. Starting with an overview, we break down the intricacies of your bike’s drivetrain into easy-to-follow steps. Step one is introduced to the group as a whole, providing detailed instructions, before you embark on the rewarding journey of undertaking that step on your own bike with us guiding you every step of the way. Return to the group, learn the next step, undertake on your own bike & return… Rinse & repeat until completion. You now know how to tune gears & brakes! (& a heap of other stuff too)
It’s a dynamic & interactive learning experience. With designated workstands and tools at your disposal you’ll immerse yourself in each step, gaining practical experience as you go. You now know how to tune any brand of gears & you’ve race tuned your bike!. You’ll not only acquire valuable skills but it’s great fun
After only 3 hours your bike will be tuned and ready to conquer any road or trail
