Brompton essential maintenance course

We hold these semi-frequently so feel free to register your interest with us.

A practical class where we’ll show you how to keep your folding wonder in perfect working order and fix common problems. Learn at your own pace with our experienced, qualified mechanic instructors.

Together we’ll cover:

  • Bicycle Overview including full safety check
  • How to fix a puncture and get those rear wheels off and on again
  • Checking and adjusting brakes, replacing pads and cables
  • Adjusting Sturmey and SRAM hub gears
  • Assessing chain wear and replacement

You’ll be provided with all necessary tools and parts but you do need to bring your own Brompton. Free refreshments available including a delicious hot vegetarian lunch.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you’re not arriving by bike (which of course we recommend) parking is available directly outside the workshop on Ayr Street. The High School tram stop is 400m away and the NCT turquoise bus service (77-80) stops even closer on Alfreton Road.

What can/can’t I bring to the event?

You do need to bring your own Brompton along. This is a hands-on course so come in comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty.
