ROAD BIKE WEEKENDER

This course is designed for you to learn the fundamentals of caring for your road bike - both preventative maintenance and road side repairs. How to keep it looking good, running smoothly, and even improving performance. Of course another added advantage is the money you will save when you know how to reliably effect your own repairs.

  • care for carbon frames and lightweight components
  • bar taping
  • bearing systems
  • wheels

Learn how to avoid making expensive mistakes with these specialist machines.

Course covers:

  • Carbon frame technology and torque usage
  • Sram, Shimano and Campagnolo specific tutoring
