CLINIC: Cleaning & Drivetrain Maintenance

If you’re a bicycle rider, you might have heard the term ‘drivetrain’ being bandied about by in-the-know bike riders. If you’re not a mechanical type of person, you may be wondering what this word means. You may be especially interested if you’re not the kind of person to do much preventative maintenance on your bicycle and if it has been riding a bit rough of late. Looking after your drivetrain, and replacing certain components within it if necessary, will ensure that your bike commute to work is a safe and smooth one.

What is the drivetrain and what does it do?

The ‘drivetrain’ of the bike consists of all the bits that you use to push (or pull) the bike along.

From front to back, the key components are:

  1. Pedals
  2. Cranks
  3. ‘Chainrings’ (chainwheel)
  4. Chain
  5. Cogs (cassette)
  6. Derailleur

Join Torsten & Ashton for a clinic focused on how to maintain and keep your bike in ride ready condition in between tune ups.

Please reserve your spot by clicking "Register" above. Tickets are FREE.

* This clinic will be offered every first Tuesday of the month.
