Free Mechanic Clinic: Disc Brakes!

  • Ranch Camp 311 Mountain Road Stowe, VT, 05672 United States (map)

Join SYC and Ranch Camp for installment two of our FREE Youth Mechanic Clinic series!

This session is all about Dialing-in Disc Brakes!

The good folks at Ranch Camp and SYC head coach, Ross Scatchard, have designed a series of clinics to teach basic bike mechanics, trailside fixes, and offer up maintenance advice.

Participants in this hands-on clinic will learn:

-Cockpit Setup: Position on bars, lever reach adjustment, free stroke/bite adjustment

-Pad Alignment: How to set caliper for best performance and avoid drags and squeaks

-Rotor Repairs: Straightening a bent rotor, cleaning and care

-How to Replace Pads: When to replace them, what pads to choose, and how to ‘bed-in’ new pads

Session two is ideal for youth ages 10 and older. Parents are welcome to join in the clinic and participants may bring their bikes if they'd like some extra Q & A after the clinic.

If possible, please RSVP:
