Poorly maintained bikes make us sad and make you slow. Your components out more quickly and a poorly maintained bike can often be downright dangerous.
Don’t be that guy/girl. Bike maintenance courses from the very basics through to full mechanic certification are available locally at Evens Cycles and at the Bikestation. You can even hire a work stand at Bikestation and use all their tools for a couple of pounds.
Please let’s not have any more juniors show up with rusty chains and flat tyres.
No more excuses!
