We run a one-day course for Brompton owners covering basic skills for general bike maintenance, as well as those special skills needed for looking after your Brompton, from rear-wheel removal and replacement, to gear issues, brakes and chains, including replacing chains, gear and brake cables, and brake blocks. We’re also happy to cover any other problems you might have on your bike, such as removal and replacement of bottom brackets, and tightening loose headsets.
Like all our courses, the Brompton one is very hands-on – you will be working on your own bike. If you don’t yet own a Brompton, we will usually have a Brommie you can work on during the class.
As with many of our other classes, the session starts at 10am on a Saturday (unless otherwise specified), and takes place in our Greenford workshop. In fact, our workshop is just down the road from the Brompton factory in Greenford.
The price is a very competitive £50, which explains why places go rather quickly!
The next class is September the 28th, followed by November the 16th. If you and a group of friends would like to book a one-off Brompton class for yourselves on a Saturday which is currently free, let us know, and if at least four people book and pay two weeks in advance, we can get it scheduled in.
Please note – we’re now asking people to pay the full £50 cost of the class when they make their booking. This payment is returnable in full if you cancel your place no later than two weeks ahead of the class date, or if we’re able to fill your place if you cancel closer to the class date. If London Bike Hub cancels the course, your payment is refundable is full. We’re having to do this as we’re finding a number of people have been booking places and then not showing up, or responding to our efforts to contact them, which is unfair on those others we have to turn away once a class is fully booked.
