Course Information

For those who wish to confidently carry out advanced servicing and repairs on their own bike or who may have a responsibility to look after the bikes of others. It will also broaden the skills and knowledge of trainees who deliver a basic level of tuition. We will teach you skills that could advance your employment in the industry. During the course you will completely dissemble and rebuild a bicycle. Our qualified instructors will guide you step by step. This usually takes 2-3 days to complete. Once the strip down and rebuild is complete students can use the remaining time to work on different styles of bike and revisit parts of the course they would like to learn more about. Please note that this course does not cover hydraulic brake bleeding, suspension maintenance, headset fitting, frame / thread facing and cutting.
