Introducing our ground-breaking four-part mechanics course: Go, Turn, Shift and Stop!
It's a modular course, and each module is six hours of mechanical delight. Taken together the modules cover all the essentials of how bikes work, and make up a holistic & comprehensive education for the budding bike mechanic. However, all the modules are stand-alone courses in their own right, and it's not necessary to take them in any particular order - or even to take every module (if you lack the time, money or inclination to do so.) Start with one that tickles your fancy and take it from there!
Anyone can take this course, however experienced or fresh-faced you think you are; it's about the depth of insight you want to get to, not where you're at before you begin.
The module - Turn!
You spin me right round bike-y! “Spinning” is a word synonymous with cycling these days, but does it just happen like magic? Oh no, there’s a lot more to it! This one is about how the turn-y parts of the bike do what they do. We focus on the wheels and the steering system (or “headset.”) You'll also learn the highly useful skills of installing wheels, tyres and tubes.
