MEC Kitchener Bike Maintenance 101 - Super Clinic

Our combined Bike Maintenance 101 Super Clinic gives you an introductory course that is designed to go over the basic skills that will allow you to keep your bike in working order. Our friendly expert staff will lead you through all the tips and tricks of flat repair, and give you the hands on knowledge to complete the minor maintenance needed to keep your whip looking and feeling fresh.

Please note that all of our 101 Super Clinics are only $20, and are limited to 10 people.

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. 

This clinic is the perfect foundation for our Bike Maintenance 201 Super Clinic. The Bike Maintenance 201 Super Clinic is $60, is 4 hours in length, and will build upon the knowledge learned in our 101 clinic with more in depth information and advance tuning skills. You also are free to bring your bike to the Bike Maintenance 201 clinics. If you are interested please see the schedule on our events site right here.

For the 101 clinic bringing your own bike is not necessary; there will be one available for demonstrations.
