Bikes and Coffee with MEC Kitchener!

Join us every other Saturday morning for a freshly brewed coffee and a Bike Maintenance 101 Clinic from 9:30-10:30am. These courses are designed to go over the basic details to keep your bike in working order, and focuses on one of the following topics per clinic: Basic Maintenance, or Flat Repair (sessions are held on a rotating basis).  Please note that all of our 101 clinics are only $10, and are limited to 8 people.

How to Fix a Flat

  • How to remove your wheel
  • How to detach your brakes ('V', cantilever, and disc)
  • Tire removal (use of tire levers)
  • Tube removal (presta and schrader)
  • Tube replacement and repair

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.
