These clinics are best suited to beginners who are new to bike maintenance.  In our 90 minute session you will learn the anatomy of the bike, diagnosing a problem, basic maintenance, fixing a flat tire and when to bring your bike in for more major repairs.


This course will teach you:

  • Know Your Bike
    • How to diagnose common mechanical issues;
    • How to provide basic maintenance;
    • Knowledge about different bike parts, and their function;
    • When to bring your bike in for major repairs.
  • How to Fix a Flat
    • 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.
  • Accessorizing Your 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.


Please do not bring your own bike, our mechanic will have one available for demonstrations.
