Each students will be provided with a bike work stand and set of tools and then will be shown how to remove all the components piece by piece. This is not a bike renovation day, so please don’t bring along a ‘project’ from the garden shed! Bikes should be in good working order without seized parts but possibly in need of a general service. Please note: It is not possible to work on bikes with Campagnolo groupsets as the tools required are quite different.
