Strip and Build a Bike Day

1st June 2016

Fixing gears on a bike.

Strip and Build a Bike Day near Ullswater.  Taking place in half term it is perfect for teachers, students and those on holiday near Ullswater in The lake district – Taking place at Greystoke cycle Cafe nr Penrith on Wed 1st June from 10am to 4pm for £78 including a lovely 2 course lunch.

In order to come on our Strip and Build a Bike course, students should be able to happily remove and replace the rear wheel of their bike and change an inner tube.

Covering Gears, Brakes, Chains, Cable Replacement, Headsets, Bottom Brackets, Wheels and Hubs – It will be similar to you giving your bike a basic service. and so will save your time and money and in the future you will be able to mend or tweak slipping gears and worn brakes and mend chains amongst many other things – It doesn’t guarantee ruling out a trip to the bike shop but will certainly help reduce bills

Please note: It is not possible to work on bikes with Campagnolo groupsets as the tools required are quite different.

Please see for further details .
