    What to Bring to the 1226 BIKES Bicycle Maintenance Workshop:

    NO TOOLS REQUIRED!  We supply all tools & workstands used on the day

    Your Bike – Clean… but doesn’t need to be spotless…  No one wants to work with a bike caked in grease & mud

    Clothing – Dressing like a hobo isn’t compulsory but please remember: You are working with oil & dirt! If you wear a 3 piece suit or that slip dress you’ve been saving for a special occasion you will leave wishing you hadn’t. We want you to walk away in the same state we finish a day’s work. Dirty on the outside and happy on the inside.
    For safety reasons closed shoes are compulsory for everyone attending the course

    Parts and consumables – Occasionally you’ll need a cable or a pad or something else unforeseen… No problem! We stock anything needed & it can be purchased on the day

    When to arrive:
    Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to start time to allow us to sign you in, inspect your bike & prepare a workstation for you

    If you have any questions feel free to give us a call on 0420 207 303

    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.
