Do you find the suspension, transmission and braking systems on your bike an impenetrable mixture of cables, hoses, adjustment screws, dials and widgets? How would you like to know how to set-up and tune each of these elements so they work perfectly and know how to fix them when they go wrong?

Our Mountain Bike Maintenance Workshop will give you the skills to set-up these key systems and ensure that they are tuned correctly for your height, weight and riding style.

We'll also look at how to recover from mechanical failures while riding including fixing tubed and tubeless punctures, replacing brake pads, repairing broken chains and straightening a buckled wheel.

We'll tell you which tools and spares to carry and you'll feel confident fixing a variety of mechanical issues whilst far from the bike shop.

After the course you'll be able to maintain your suspension, index your gears perfectly, sort out common brake issues. know which tools and spares to carry and prepare your bike so it gives you the very best performance otr on the trails.

The organisation and delivery of the course was excellent. We shall certainly look to book more later in the year
