Hey Everyone,

We are just putting this out there to see if there is interest for some free basic bike maintenance workshops for our members?

They’ll probably be an hour long and consist of a professional bike mechanic passing on some bike care tips and then have a Q&A session afterwards.

Things covered will be:

  • Basic bike maintenance
  • Pre and Post ride checks
  • Bike cleaning
  • Bike fit

We’ll keep the groups small and intimate (5-6 people) and if the demand is there we’ll put a few of these workshops on so everyone can get a turn.

What do you think? Comment on Facebook or send me an email at [email protected]


Maintenance Monday! Tubeless Tyres

Maintenance Monday! Tubeless Tyres
Thinking about going tubeless?

Had a few punctures on the weekend’s ride so Ben thought that we should put up some information about setting up your wheels as tubeless.

Now tubeless has its pros and cons and you have diehard supporters on both sides. Some people prefer the support a tube gives the tyre and it’s a lot simpler to setup. Other people like how tubeless setups prevents general punctures and “snake bites” and can be run with less pressure which gives more grip.

Below is a great video from the guys at GMBN taking you through a tubeless setup BUT remember it’s not a big cost to get your local bike shop to do it for you. Once you have tried to furiously pump air into a tyre that doesn’t want to inflate you might appreciate the tools and experience a bike mechanic has to offer.
