repair clinics

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

 

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS, 6pm
(1.5 – 3hrs, depending on clinic)

 

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!

– Questions?
– Suggestions?
– or interested in booking in a group of friends or colleagues?
– or a one-on-one?
– or want us to come to you to teach a group?

(starting at $85/hr; max. group size 5-7, depending on clinic)

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