Bike Maintenance 201 - Drivetrain

Bikes and coffee with MEC!

Join us every Sunday morning for a freshly brewed coffee and Bike Maintenance 201 Clinic from 9:30-11:00am*

These courses are designed for those wanting to learn how to work on their own bike, and focuses on one of four topics per clinic: Drivetrain, Derailleurs, Brakes, or Wheel Truing (sessions are held on a rotating basis). 

Please note that all of our 201 clinics are only $20, and are limited to 8 people*.

*Wheel truing clinic is from 9:30-11:30am, and is limited to 4 people.


Drivetrain Adjustment & Replacement

 This course will teach you:

  • how to change your cable and housing;
  • how to remove, size, and install a new chain (or repair);
  • how to remove and install a cassette;
  • when to bring your bike in for major repairs.

This is a knowledge based clinic, and we will provide you with all of the materials you might need. Come with your questions and a sense of adventure. 

Bringing your own bike is not necessary; there will be one available for demonstrations. 

Help us stay green - bring your own coffee mug and we'll provide the rest

Please meet at the MEC bike patio (red dragon) for entrance to the store as this clinic is held afterhours.
