Bertie Maffoons Bicycle Co. :: Repairs & Servcing: Mechanics Tuition

Repairs & Servcing: Mechanics Tuition

Most people like to tinker with their bike, but there’s a fine line between fixing a problem and making it worse! At Bertie’s we offer one to one or small group mechanics classes to increase your knowledge in specific areas. We focus on:


Full Suspension bike cleaning and care (1 hour)

Puncture repair, general maintenance and safety checks (2 hours)

Brakes – diagnostic, trouble shooting and adjustment (2 hours)

Gears – diagnostic, trouble shooting and adjustment (2 hours)

Custom lessons available, please call to discuss your requirements

One to one tuition £30.00 per hour.

 £5.00 per hour for additional clients up to a maximum of 3 per group

We are very flexible and can tailor it to whatever you require. The sessions mainly look at diagnosis and basic repair techniques to make sure they are as effective as possible. It is unlikely that you’ll remember how to do everything so we try to keep it simple but relevant.


If you’re interested in honing your skills, give us a ring to book a session. All bikes, tools, aprons etc are provided. Times can be adapted to suit you although in busy times (March - September) sessions will be limited.
