Flat Repair Clinic ~ Every Last Thursday of the month
FLAT REPAIRS & BUILDING A FLAT REPAIR KIT
Get hands on experience at changing a flat tire. We will teach you step by step how it is done. How to take your wheel off the bike, how to remove the tire and tube, how to check what caused the flat, how to use a C02 inflator and cartridge, how to reinstall your tube, tire and wheel.
Also, be prepared on your ride. Always have a flat repair kit with you. If you don't have a kit, we will help you build one, so you have the emergency supplies you need to take on your ride.
