1 day Mindful Mechanics course with Vicky Balfour, Vicky Bikes
Vicky’s Mission is to empower you so your riding is never limited by fear of things going wrong mechanically.
This 1 day course is a perfect step towards that goal. It addresses 3 common trailside problem areas: gears, brakes and chains.
Through the day you will learn about and practice working on:
Gear indexing (how to use limit screws and cable tension)
Brake pads (remove and replace pads; stop pads rubbing)
Chains (using quicklinks to fix broken chains)
This is a hands-on course where you will have your own workstand and the chance to get to understand how your bike works and how to troubleshoot problems out on rides.
a bike to work on
any tools you take on rides (eg multitool and chain breaker; quicklinks)
Vicky will provide everything else you need as well as handouts so you can practise what you’ve learned at home.
