Masterclass: Things you don't necessarily need to go to a bike shop for

Here's another Masterclass - this time hands-on in a meeting room at the library, rather than out on the road.

Neil Harwood and Dave Downer will team up for this one and take us through some key areas.


They've put together a list of things that are often needed and with a little bit of knowledge we can do ourselves:  The first couple aren't usually bike shop things - but there are some skills to be learned here (who doesn't want to learn how to fix a puncture without getting your hands all greasy!  That sounds like sorcery, and I for one, can't wait to see the technique)

  • Fixing a puncture without touching your chain
  • Cleaning your bike.
  • Replacing a cassette
  • Replacing a chain (and discussion around how to check if it's needed)
  • How to check and replace brake pads
  • Adjusting gears
  • Doing your own service.  
  • Maintenance checklist (pads, drive train, tyres, checking things are tight etc)

WHERE:  Paraparaumu Public Library

WHEN:  March 10th, 6:30pm
