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 interactive course. Understanding how your bike works and feeling comfortable doing minor repairs is a big part of what enables cyclists to enjoy riding and build confidence. The Basic Maintenance Clinic familiarizes riders 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 learn hands-on how to change your tire and tube. You do not need to bring your bike or gear- we will provide everything you need.
