Bike Maintenance 101

This course helps you get to grips with the basics of bicycle mechanics. Useful both for novice mechanics with no previous experience and for those that need a bit of a refresher! Learn how to give your bike a thorough check-up, fix a puncture, index your gears and sharpen your brakes. The classes take place within a small group setting, so any and all questions are encouraged!

Please bring your own bike, ideally something with regular derailleur gears (not internal hub or pinion gearbox types), road caliper, v brakes or disc brakes and some warm cloths that you don’t mind getting a little dirty.

The course takes place over two 3 hour sessions, after which you will receive a certificate of completion. Block of two classes costs £60 (includes Bike Maintenance 101 workbook, park tools tyre levers and patchs). Hive members get 20% discount on all classes. Gift vouchers available.

Intermediate Bike Maintenance Course

This course is designed as a follow-on from our Bike Maintenance 101 course, for those who already have a good grounding in the basics of bike maintenance, and who want to further their knowledge in bicycle repairs.

Including:- changing gear and brake cables, cutting outer cable to suit, changing chain and cassette, inspection and clean/re-grease of a headset, basics of hubs, basics of wheel true, as well as reasonably in-depth setup of gears and brakes on a regular bike*

*This course is for those looking to take the next step in the maintenance of common items on their bike and become more confident tackling the greasy bits on their bike, its not a replacement for a trained mechanics knowledge.

Please bring your own bike, ideally something with regular derailleur gears (not internal hub or pinion gearbox types), road caliper, v brakes or disc brakes and some warm cloths that you don’t mind getting a little dirty.

This class also takes place over two 3 hour sessions, after which you will receive a certificate of completion. Block of two classes costs £60 (includes workbook, park tools tyre levers and patchs). If you complete Bike Maintenance 101 with ourselves, you get 20% of the Intermediate course! Gift vouchers available.
