Roadside Repair focuses on any major repairs you may need to make to your bike when you are out riding. While we won’t be covering fixing a flat or preventative maintenance we will be looking at:
- What to keep in your tool kit and why
- Chain falling off your cassette or chain rings
- Loose bolts and critical bolts
- Sudden brake rubbing
- Derailleur failure
- How to fix a broken chain
Whether you have some experience, or have thousands of miles under your tires, these skills will help you to be more self-sufficient in the case of a breakdown. This is great know-how for anyone looking to feel more confident in leading a group of riders or going on more solo trips.
