Repair Clinics

TUESDAY EVENINGS & SATURDAY AFTERNOONS

(1.5 – 3hrs, depending on clinic)

 

Keep your bike rolling safely by learning the basics of bike maintenance and repair from Oak Bay Bikes!

 

Our mechanics will teach you in small groups — or one-on-one — how to safety-check your bike, how to fix a flat, adjust your brakes and gears, and how to stay safe on the road. You will learn about tire pressure, safety inspections, lubrication, cleaning, brake adjustments, drivetrains, shifting, chain replacement, and much more!

Make sure to register either in store (OBB Victoria, 1990 Oak Bay Ave) or by emailing [email protected] since space is limited.
