3 hour $99 Bicycle Maintenance & Tuning Course

3 Hour Bicycle Maintenance Course

Held at the iconic Eureka hall 119 Stawell St Ballarat VIC 3350 the 1226 BIKES BYO bicycle tuning & maintenance course is a great starter course focusing on tuning, adjusting & troubleshooting gears & brakes as well as plenty of other things covered on the day

Starting with an overview of the general principles of the drive train followed by a break down of each part into simple steps you’ll learn how a complicated system is actually quite simple.  We acheive this by introducing each step to the group as a whole with detailed instructions.  Once everyone understands the fundamentals they go to their designated workstands & undertake that step on their own bike under expert direction.  Rinse & repeat until completion.  It’s fun, dynamic, hands on & you’ll leave with your bike tuned & ready to rumble

    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.
