Build Your Own Brompton
Ready to get stuck in? Our BYOBrompton (Full Brompton Service) course is a full day of non-stop bike action. Only Bromptons allowed!
You'll be taking apart your very own Brompton and then putting it back together, all the while servicing it along the way. We're talking the full monty here - stripping it down to its tiny little bearings, understanding how it all works and then rebuilding it. Petor Georgallou, the instructor, is a Brompton specialist, racer, and fan, and will help you service your folding bike.
Please contact us AT LEAST one week beforehand to schedule a meeting to source the parts you'll need to service your Brompton. Note that you will be taking apart your Brompton only up to the point where a regular service is done. There will be a point where further maintenance is best left to Brompton specialist mechanics.
Things you will learn:
How to use specific tools for specific parts of your bike
How to properly clean, grease and oil your bike (and what parts require greasing vs oiling)
How to determine whether a part is too worn and needs to be replaced
How beautiful the bicycle is as a machine
This is a full 8-hour course, which includes a vegetarian lunch. It will take place on Saturday 5 July from 11 - 7pm. Classes are limited to two students.
Please note this is an intermediate level course. We highly recommend that you have a basic understanding of brakes and gears - namely replacing cables, brake pads and indexing gears. If you don't know this, please take one of our Introduction to Maintenance courses. (We're serious about this - this is a LOOOOONG class and if you don't know how to index gears, you could lose your bearings - ha.)
We can rebuild it. We have the technology.
(N.B. If you sign up for a class and then can't make it, please let us know 48 hours in advance to get a refund. We cannot give a refund after this period. We also cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Our classes fill up quickly and spots are highly prized, so if you can't make it please let us know ASAP!)
