Bike Maintenance 101: How to Fix a Flat
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
For the 101 clinic bringing your own bike is not necessary; there will be one available for demonstrations.
