Ever wondered why your chain jumps or your gears won’t change? A clean and well maintained drivetrain (that’s the parts of you bike that move it forward: gears, chains, chain rings etc.) is essential for the smooth running of you bike.
In this course we will cover:
-How to clean your drivetrain
-How to lubricate your drivetrain
-How to adjust your gears
-How to spot common problems and how to fix them
After the course the workshop will be open for you to put your new knowledge to use and get your own drivetrain running smoothly.
Note: This course if mainly focussed on Derailleur gear setups but if you have a hub gear or single speed you can still come along and we’ll take a look in the workshop session.
Please bring your own bike if you’d like some hands-on practice
This summer’s classes are all funded by Cycling UK’s Big Bike Revival – thank you to them!
