Event Details

Don't settle for squeaky, squishy brakes - a few quick adjustments can have you stopping on a dime.


With this hands-on, classroom style course, you will be able to identify the various parts of your bicycle's braking system, replace worn out brake pads and cables, and fine-tune everything to a T. (Disc brakes not covered.)


What you'll learn:

  • Survey of common rim brake technologies
  • Cable, housing and brake pad replacement
  • Repair and maintenance on caliper, linear-pull ("v brakes"), and cantilever brakes
  • How to make quick adjustments on the go
  • How to properly adjust brakes for maximum stopping and minimal squealing
