Product Description

Despite what many people think, most bike maintenance tasks are really quite simple. There are only a few basics to know.

The West Malling Cycles basic maintemance course covers everything we think you should know about keeping your bike in tip-top condition as well as resolving any issues you might encounter during a ride.

We’ll show you a simple safety check – it only takes a few seconds – which you should make on your bike every time you ride, and show you how to make simple adjustments if you find any problems. You’ll also get hands-on experience of removing and replacing bike wheels and everyone gets a go at removing and replacing an inner tube as we show you the easiest way to remove even the most stubborn tyre from a bike wheel!
