Event description

Description

Join Mark from Rediscover Cycling on the 6th of June for a morning of bike maintenance demonstrations. During this two and a half hour demonstration, you will learn about:

Repair Review - Assessing Used Bikes for Reconditioning
With enough time, resources and know-how no bike is beyond repair. This talk will cover common issues encountered when looking at fully reconditioning a bike - how to check for stuck parts that might make it a no-go, what problems are easily remedied, and an introduction to the different sizes of parts and compatibilities.

Mandatory Maintenance - from the Weekly to the Yearly
A bike's components wear naturally with use, but some wear faster than others so different levels of maintenance are needed at different intervals to keep the bike working in ideal condition and getting the most out of each component. Learn what you can do at home, manage with a few simple tools, and what you might need to have a professional do to maintain your bike for the long run.

Cable Controls - Setting up Brakes and Gears
Brake and gear adjustments are some of the most common repairs required on bikes. Doing it yourself takes a bit of practise but with a clear step-by-step guide it becomes a lot easier and eliminates the need to cycle with 'jumpy' gears or slow brakes until you have time to leave it for servicing. At least if you can't manage it yourself, knowing how to troubleshoot the problem will help you communicate to a mechanic what the issue may be. This talk will cover cable controlled ('mechanical') brake and gear systems, and a 4 step system for each for testing and setting them up.
