Cyclesmith’s technicians offer Basic and Advanced bicycle repair courses to supplement your cycling knowledge. We are experts in repairing and maintaining bicycles. You'll learn the best ways to care for and fix problems on your road and mountain bikes using pro tools and procedures.
Basic Bike Repair Course
Our instructors make this a fun and very interactive course, where we demystify the bike. The Basic Maintenance Clinic familiarizes you with the basic knowledge a cyclist requires of their bike. We will go over how to clean your entire bike, how to maintain your bike for trouble-free use, and how to lube and clean your drive train. You will even learn hands-on how to change your tire and tube. You do not need to bring your bike or gear as we will provide everything you will need.
