      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!
