Wheeling with Vince

Following a request at the last AGM, a series of bike maintenance training sessions was carried out by Vince assisted by Des.

The sessions, lasting two & half hours, covering topics such as Chain cleaning, cable lubrication, Indexing, tyre removal / refitting together with other General Maintenance items.

Particular attention was given to the technique of removal / refitting if a tyre, which a lot of riders have a problem with. In addition, the removal / refitting of a rear wheel in relation to the cassette & chain, which again seems to frustrate riders.

This was very much ‘hands on’ with members practicing what they had been taught.

A big THANK YOU to Duncan, who agreed for the training to take place at Wallington Cycles – and more pix here:
