Ready to dust your wheels off and get your ride ready for this season , but not quite sure where to begin?

 

Join us for a Spring Maintenance/Flat Repair Clinic

With spring quickly approaching the time to get your bicycle road and trail ready has arrived.  A bit of maintenance, some quick safety checks and a refresher course on minor road side repairs will get you ready to ride with confidence this season.

Proper and regular bicycle maintenance is key for optimal performance.  It is much more cost effective to maintain than repair.
 
Along with maintenance a quick safety check is important before kicking off your riding season to ensure your bike is functioning as it should.

Knowing basic road side maintenance can keep you rolling when otherwise would bring you to a halt. Whether it’s learning a new trick or refreshing an old skill, this will boost your capability.

 

Join us at Kent Cycle for a Clinic that covers basic maintenance, safety checks and road side repairs.

 

This free hour long clinic is geared towards those cyclists who wish to build confidence and take control of their riding experience.  A safety inspection will identify any problem areas that may need to be dealt with.  We will check tires, brakes, chains, cables, cassette, crank and all bolts and quick release devices.  Once we are satisfied with our safety check we will lubricate cables and chain, tighten bolts and inflate tubes to optimal psi.  Flats happen.  Knowing how to make the repair quickly and efficiently will get you rolling in no time.  Our demonstration will cover a few different set ups. Feel free to bring your bike if you would like to learn how to change your own tube.   

What:  Spring Maintenance/Flat Repair Clinic

Where:  Kent Cycle 115 Lake Street, Kent, OH 44240

When:  Wednesday, April 5th from 7-8 pm
