Bespoke Cycle Repair Courses
Our Cycle Repair Course, from just £99
- Feel confident repairing or servicing your bicycle
- Learn why things are not right, and what to do to fiix them
- Try learning something new!
Our cycle repair training courses are tailored to the individual, and offered on a one-to-one basis only. So whether you want to know how to repair a puncture yourself, or want to fully strip down and rebuild your bike, we will tailor the course to suit your exact needs.
About the course
We are offering 2 durations of course for an individual, depending on how much you wish to learn. We can happily discuss and recommend which course duration to book based on what you want to learn:
3 hour Course - £99
7 hour course - £199
Our 3 hours courses run mostly in evenings, ideal for those at work during the day. We operate our 7 hour course at various times, our online booking system will show the latest dates available
we can cover almost anything from replacing an inner tube to wheel building. The only area we don't cover is suspension servicing, due to the availability of parts and fork and shock specific servicing requirements, which for some brands means shocks can only be serviced at a designated service centre.
About our workshop
When you have a technician/trainer with over 35 years of experience, then you will have a workshop well equipped to deal with most bicycles and repairs. Our workshop is ventilated and air conditioned/heated, and is a live, working workshop, so everything is laid out for optimum work when we are not training you to look after your bicycle. We have a range of Park, DT Swiss, Lezyne and professional engineering tools at our disposal, and can also offer you advice on the best tools for the job if you are looking to equip your own DIY workshop, or just your back pack for the commute to work.
About the trainerThese courses are undertaken by myself, Scott Hargrave. I am a former cycle technician trainer and an NVQ assessor for a large high street retailer, and also Cytech 2 qualified. Having repaired bikes for over 35 years, and raced for a period of that in various disciplines I have a wealth of knowledge and tips plus tricks to share. My experience goes beyond the bike workshop, having also been the creator and developer of the Pinnacle Bikes range of bicycles, and also working on other bespoke projects. I have also run wintersports technician courses for 10 years, so am experienced in helping to communicate technical information at a level the individual understands and will gain confidence from.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many participants would be on the course?
One. We are set on this, we tried doing this with partners/friends etc, and it just doesn’t work. To be able to offer at this trial price, and be able to cover everything and not be pinging from pillar to post, only one person can attend, as we are not running to a pre-set training programme which you can find elsewhere, it is completely bespoke to the individual attending, with your own bike technician working with you to show you whatever you would like to know specific to your needs and/or bike. So having 2 people could mean twice the content needing to be covered or one person dominating proceedings to the detriment of the other attendee. 😊
How many bikes can I bring with me?
One. We want to spend the time showing you as much as possible. This course isn't designed to do several bike services cheaply, its offered to show you a new set of skills or better ways to complete bike maintenance yourself
Do I need to bring a bike with me?
No, we have plenty of bikes here to demonstrate the techniques you will want to learn if required.
