We can tailor-make a course as part of your mountain bike holiday, so you can learn about the bike you are riding and carry out basic maintenance yourself, from changing Derailleur
cable, to adjusting derailleur gears, learning to bleed brakes or cleaning hub sets and bearings.
We will provide you with the knowledge which will inevitably save you a lot of money if you can do it yourself or more importantly save you if you are stuck in a remote place on the mountain.
