Problems with shifting? Chain rubbing? At this more advanced bike maintenance clinic, you’ll learn how to get your bike gears shifting perfectly, and take your bike repair skills up a notch.

Skill level: Intermediate

Format: Hands-on, small group class

You’ll learn:

· How to inspect your derailleurs

· How to tell when your derailleurs need an adjustment

· How to adjust your front and rear derailleur

· When you need to take your bike to the shop for service

Important notes

We highly recommend taking the beginner bike repair and maintenance clinics at MEC before this class.

This is a hands-on clinic, so wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit of bike grease on.

Please leave your own bike at home, where you can practice your new skills on it later. We’ll provide demo materials and gear in class.

Heads up: internal hub systems and internally geared bikes aren’t covered in this workshop.

Who’s teaching the clinic?

Our more advanced bike clinics are taught by experienced MEC bike mechanics, who are ready to answer any of your questions.
