Yes, we know many of you cottoned on ages ago to the many (mechanical, get it?) advantages of hydraulic disc brakes. Now you want to know what to do when they play up, so we’re putting on this class to teach just that (let it not be said that we don’t move with the times). Mountain biker and cycle mechanic extraordinaire, Jamie Smith, will teach you how to diagnose problems, change pads and bleed your hydraulic disc brakes.
We like it if you can bring along a bike with hydraulic disc brakes (thats HYDRAULIC, not cable operated – got it?). But if you haven't got the kit, don't let that stop you, tell us in advance and you can usually borrow our demo stuff.
