About Bike Maintenance Course

Saturdays 16th & 30th November plus 14th December

Course content:

The Wee Spoke Hub is a community bike workshop on Guthrie Street, aiming to empower people to cycle more in their everyday lives through making cycle mechanics more accessible.

This Autumn, we are offering a series of 3 bike maintenance classes, run by our qualified mechanic, to cover all the things you need to know to take care of your bike day-to day and the repairs to keep you on the move.

You are welcome to bring your own bike, it will make the learning more relevant and it will get a safety check and new cables and brake pads as part of the sessions. We also have demo bikes available on request.

At the end of the three sessions, you will be able to confidently identify the different parts of a bike, perform routine checks and maintenance to keep you safe, and check, maintain and change inner tubes, brakes and gears.
And of course, we’ll take care of snacks and refreshments during the sessions.

Running order:

Session 1, Saturday Nov. 16th, 10am-1pm: Bike mechanics 101: this first session will cover the very basic bike mechanic notions, you will learn the different parts of the bike, and what to look for when doing a safety check (or M check). You will then move on to take off your wheels to check and repair punctures.

Session 2, Saturday Nov. 30th, 10am-1pm: Brakes: in this second session, we will look at the main brake systems and learn to check and maintain them. If you bring your own bike, you will go home with new cables and pads!
note: for timing and safety reasons, this session will not cover hydraulic disc brakes.

Session 3, Saturday Dec. 14th, 10am-1pm: Gears: the third session will revolve around gears and everything making them spin. You will learn to check your drivetrain (front and rear cogs and chain), cables and derailleurs, and to maintain them yourself.

SHRUB members get a 20% discount for the course.
