Course Reviews

course bike maintenance repairs

Definitely Recommend This Course

 "Did a bike maintenance course with Lee on 4th December. It was excellent. I am newish to cycling and certainly to bike maintenance and I learned a lot. There was a wide breath of knowledge amongst my colleagues and all learned useful things. Not just about how to do a certain repair but where to stand when doing it to avoid damage to you and bike. Definitely recommend this course. Lee has a really good manner with how he teaches and can explain really complicated items with ease". Luke - West Midlands

I'd Highly Recommend The Complete Cyclist

 "I took part in a day-long workshop on bike maintenance with Lee. Instruction was spot on, with great visual illustrations used to help understanding, and plenty of hands on time to put into practice what you had been shown. Even after a few years of doing my own stuff, I had a good few myths out to bed, had learnt what some of the fiddly screws did, and picked up some awesome tips along the way. It also was great that he offered a mobile service which allowed us to have course conducted on our work premises - this was a real bonus. I’d highly recommend The Complete Cyclist for any group of riders who want to know more about how their bike works and how to keep it safe and well maintained". Linz - Telford

Absolutely Brilliant

" I completed a 2 hours of 1-1 training session with Lee today. I am relatively new to cycling and felt daunted by the prospect of dealing with punctures or a broken chain and gear and other mechanical roadside repairs. I feel so much more confident after the training which included a systematic pre ride bike check and fault finding and decision making regarding issues which required prompt rectification. Other aspects included wheel removals and puncture repairs and chain removal and repairs. Great advice was given about cleaning and maintenance of the bike and essential products to take on rides and keep handy at home. I have to say that Lee also gave me a valuable reminder about enjoying cycling for what it is ( for me fitness and fun) and not getting too carried away with all the hype. Absolutely brilliant" Paul Tilley - Mansfield Road Club
