  • Course Description

    The Strip & Build Bike Maintenance Course is one of our most popular courses and has been created for riders who would like to be to be able to fully maintain or repair their own mountain or road bikes.

    This mountain bike maintenance course is designed for those of you who already have a little experience of cycle maintenance but would like to increase that knowledge further to become a better bike mechanic and reduce the amount of time your bike is off the trails and save yourself a hefty bill at the bike shop at the same time. We will show you just how easy it is to fix many problems or upgrade a component, saving you both time and a lot of money in the long run. If you are already able to fix a puncture, adjust your gears and replace cables this is the course for you. If you can not complete these basics we would recommend completing our beginners bike maintenance course before attending this one to ensure you get the most out of the course.

    Note: If your bike requires new parts this will be an additional cost. If you know of any particular problems or you would like to upgrade a certain component please feel free tobring those along with you or contact our shop on 017687-78711 to order the required parts.

    Course Itinerary

    Day 1: All bikes will be given a thorough cleaning, then you will begin to strip your own bike down to the frame. With your bike on a work-stand and your own set of tools (supplied by Cyclewise for the course), we will show you how to remove all the components piece by piece, true wheels and service a hub. Once your bike is completely stripped, we have the specialist tools to face your bike ready for the re-build on day 2. 

    Day 2: With your frame on the stand, you will begin to build up your bike, servicing each component as the training progresses. We will then show you how to set up your bike correctly for your riding style.You will then be given the opportunity for a test ride to make sure everything is running smoothly.

    This bike maintenance course is suitable for both MTB and road bike riders, so book now to gain the confidence and knowledge to be able to maintain your own bike or fleet of bikes.

    Next door to the classroom we have our Cyctech Accredited Service Centre and Whinlatter Bike Shop where you can purchase your very own set of tools or any tooling you are missing before you leave. We offer a special discount for anyone attending a Cyclewise course.
