Course Specifics —

Courses can vary in duration depending on what you are after. I am happy to cover as little or as much as you need to cover some essential basics, or enhance what you already know, or delve deeper into the nitty gritty stuff!

I am a traveling bike mechanic and thus, my one requirement is for you to have access to a bike stand – either your own or borrow / rent one from a bike shop.

I can provide limited tools that will allow me to teach a majority of topics outlined above.

For groups larger than 4, personal tools are recommended to ensure hands on practice (these include pedal wrenches, allen keys, tire levers, spare tube, spare break pads, & lube).
