Maintenance: City & Sports Bike

Congratulations, you are almost a real Dutchman or Dutch woman! But riding a bike is not always trouble free. Is your bike due for some maintenance? Do you want to stop going to the bicycle repair shop for every small defect? Learn to repair the most common defects on your own bike, such as a broken chain or a flat tire. You learn to tighten your chain and repair your lights. Also the adjustment of the brakes and gears, the replacement of brake pads, cables and the choice of the correct components are discussed. Mounting new parts or accessories is of course also possible (in consultation).

PLEASE NOTE: this is a Dutch/English course – for booking, go to the Dutch page.

  • Duration: 1 Saturday or Sunday (6 hours) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Goal: Learning to maintain your own bike.
  • Target group: Everyone who wants to get to know their own bike better.
  • Level: BASIC-advanced-expert.
  • Content: Basic principles of repairing bicycles & troubleshooting, plus adjustments.
