    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 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!
