Event Details

Taught over a full day, this basics course for wimmin covers just about everything you need to know about gears and brakes, and a bit more!

This is a HANDS ON class: Many other providers mostly only provide demonstrations but in this class you will get to have a go at everything on your bike or one of ours, to give you sound experiential learning that you can take with you and use forever!

The hands on approach also means that you leave the class with your bike's brakes and gears having been completely serviced with brand new cables and outers.

Class covers: 

Gears (derailleur system): Replacement of inner and outer cables, Gear indexing, Limit screws, 

Brakes: Brake pads- Replacing and adjusting. 'Towing in'; Brake cables- Replacing and tuning; Brake levers- Tightening or loosening the pull, Keeping levers secure on handle bars.

The course fee includes tuition, cables, outers and brake blocks, tea and coffee and maintenance booklet.

(We aim to make bike maintenance and cycling as sustainable and affordable as possible. The average price at a bike shop in Manchester for replacment of brake and gear cable and blocks is over £60, therefore you will get the job done on your bike in addition to knowledge that will last a lifetime and continue to save you money)

We encourage you to bring your own bike to work on. Once you’ve completed a day course, we’d love you to come back and use our facilities at either the Pedal MCR Tool Club or Bloomers Tool Club. Or you might even want to volunteer with us!
