This 70hour course goes deeper than the Park Tool Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair. Bike Teacher training certificates provided. In addition to the more general topics covered in our 40 hour class, you will work in a hands on environment with Bike Teacher to look at the different range of products and their maintenance needed. The 30 extra hours will allow you to venture into the different style of components that you would run into on a day to day basis in a bike shop as a mechanic.
A small example of this would be include; different types of brakes such as disc, cantilever, linear-pull, cable, hydraulic etc. different bottom bracket standards; outboard (external, pressfit, one piece crank arm set, bmx and so on and how to maintain and rebuild, headsets, hubs, sealed cartridge bearings and the different options and adjustments required.
