Looking to take your bike skills to the next level ?
Maintaining your own bike is a very satisfying experience. The only thing more satisfying is riding it when everything is just sweet. Gears change with precision, brakes are dialed in, hubs are greased up and rims are running true – two wheeled bliss !
With some training, practice and home mechanic tools pretty much anyone can work on a bike !
To help you get there Serk’s mechanic Jeff Trinh holds regular training coursea for bike repair.
