The course fee includes tuition, cables, outers and brake blocks, tea/coffee and maintenance Ebooklet.
Bring your own bike- this means your bike will get a full brakes service at the same time as you learning.
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.
(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 cable and blocks is over £40, 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)
This is a mixed gender class suitable for beginners and people wanting extra tips!
Please note, the class is for cable operated brakes (not hydraulics)
