Description

Flat Repair Learn to fix a flat in different scenarios, from the easiest to hardest of tire removal and installs. Learn how to use one tire lever, two tire levers and three tire levers effectively. You will be prepared and feel confident.

Tire Repair Fix a tire that has a sidewall cut that will get you home by using whats in your pockets.

Lubrication is your friend. It keeps the the peace between moving parts, but excess is just bad.

Broken Spoke Your ride is not over because of a busted spoke. Learn how to deal with it and ride strong.

Brakes Are your brakes on vacation? Learn to fine tune them with ease. Adjust them to your personal preference.

Derailleurs OK, derailleurs can be scary, but don't fret. Your adjusting barrel is truly your friend. A quarter turn here a quarter tune there, Done!

Chain drop and chain suck are indicators there is a bigger problem. It's time to inspect your drivetrain (chain, chainrings, cassette, derailleurs) and make adjustments.

Chain Life Chains wear out. A chain is like the oil in your car. It wears with time and dirt and if it is not replaced periodically it will wear out and destroy the parts it comes in contact with. ie. Cassette and chainrings. That equals money that could be spent elsewhere.

What to bring?

Your Bike

Multi tool or similar (with chain break)

Tire Levers

Apron

Latex gloves optional

I will have some tools on hand to share.
