Come learn with MEC!

Join us Monday evenings for a Bike Maintenance 101 Clinic from 6:00-7:00pm. 

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 12 people.


Flat Repair

 This course will teach you:

  • how to remove your wheel;
  • how to detatch 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. 

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

All of our Bike Maintenance clinics meet in the cycling department.


INFO

This clinic is led by MEC staff.

Important Note: Please do not bring your own bike.

These sessions are the perfect foundation for our Bike Maintenance 201 clinics.  The Bike Maintenance 201 clinics are also $20 each, and they continue with more in depth information and intermediate level bike maintenance skills.
