Service School 2017/18
Check below for full details on course topics, fees, and dates. We look forward to seeing you in class!
Basic Maintenance $80 plus gst and service fee
Our basic maintenance course introduces students to the basic functions of bicycles. Our experienced mechanics teach you how to adjust gears and brakes, repair flat tires, adjust bearings, true wheels, and other maintenance tips that are essential for every cyclist to know. We will provide the bicycles for this course and will do our best to closely match what you have at home. This course is taught on Thursday evenings at our main store location, it requires a minimum of four participants and a maximum of 6. We will cancel the course with 48 hours notice if the minimum number is not met.
Complete Overhaul $250 plus gst and service fee (Includes book)
In this course our mechanics help students perform a complete overhaul on their own bike. The course will cover the removal and re-installation of all parts on the bike as well as the overhaul of loose or sealed bearing hubs, bottom brackets and headsets. This is a great opportunity for individuals already considering a complete overhaul, or who want to learn more about the functions of their bike. For this course we require participants drop their bikes off a minimum of 2 weeks before the course so we can assess the condition of the bike and order any necessary parts. This course is taught over two days during the weekend and requires a minimum of two participants and maximum of four we reserve the right to cancel with 48 hours notice if the minimum is not met and refuse bikes based on condition. *Please note this does not include brake bleeding or suspension overhauls.
Our rent-a-tech program allows you to fully customize your course. In this program we can cover any subject and teach it in a way that works best for you. With this option you rent one of our experienced mechanics for however long is necessary to fully cover the desired subject. We recommend this for brake bleeding and fork overhauls as we can spend a lot more time focusing on the intricacies of your specific system rather than trying to cover a wide range of products. Dates for this course are negotiable and it has no minimum number of participants.
