Good Day All,

As a part time bike mechanic at Caps, I would be happy to put on some workshops for those riders who would like some tips on changing tires while on the road, adjusting brakes and derailleurs, fenders ($%**&^!), etc. What we would get into would not require specialized tools, only a small multi-tool, tire levers, small air pump or C02 cartridges, etc.

I think the best opportunity would be at Caps after a ride. I can set up a bike stand out behind the shop.

If anyone is interested you can email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
