Saturday and Sunday 24-25 of September I was in Whinlatter to attend a Bike Maintenance Strip and Build Course with Nick as an Instructor and few new friends. I was keen to attend this course because I feel mechanics is one of my weak points as a mountain bike guide and I want to be be confident in carrying out all possible trail side repairs to make the most of our adventures.
It was great! I was surprised to complete a true wheel and hub service. I changed the cartridges of my headset and I stripped and de-greased with confidence a lot of parts. I will practice a lot over the winter what I learned.
It has been a great learning week end and I was surprised to see how well the bike was rolling after my own service! Thank You Cyclewise, Nick, Sue and Rich!
