- ABCs of bike maintenance
- Bike basics, proper bike fit, setting up your ride
- Identifying typical tire, brake and chain problems and how to fix them
- Emergency repair tips
- Installing headsets, bottom brackets and cranks
- Derailleur fitting and maintenance
- Servicing of disc brakes and V-brakes, and more
To find out more about the class, and when the next sessions are going to be held, please visit the Bike School Asia website.
Bike School Asia is the only place in Singapore that I know of that shows you how to take apart someone ELSE’s bike and then also shows you how to put it back together again in a cool, dry, fully air-conditioned environment. Allows any aspiring cyclist to practice in a hands-on manner the most essential and common maintenance tasks such as puncture repair, inner tube change and gear adjustment. Highly recommended for anyone that loves his/her bike and wishes they could take better care of it by themselves.
It is not good enough to know how to ride a bike. It is also equally important to understand the mechanics of your bike and how to tackle problems that arise when you are out cycling. I participated the workshop and I must say it was a wonderful and informative workshop. The 4-hour workshop was not enough considering that the instructor still had a lot to share with us. Nevertheless, I picked up some interesting survival tips!
