want to know The Secret of learning bike mechanics?
Having an absolute blast along the way...
Since 2007 Cycle Systems have been teaching students how to fast track their skill level when it comes to fixing their bicycles.
As technology has sped up in the world of bike tech however, so have our teaching methods.
Since 2020, we have been developing a huge array of online educational resources - from free, shorter video content aimed at helping you gain quick maintenance wins, through to entire year long coaching platforms designed to take you into absolute mechanical mastery.
Wherever you find yourself on your cycle tech journey, we have designed our materials to meet you at your current skill level, and propel you forward to the next level.

HOW CAN THIS POSSIBLY WORK ONLINE?
We do love a challenge here at Cycle Systems
Cycle Systems have been using online material to supplement and add value to their in-house training courses for almost two decades.
However, given that a significant portion of our students have not been able or willing or able to travel the distance to the wild, wet and windy far West of the UK to study with us, a clear demand developed.
Over the past decade then, my team and I have worked with film makers, designers, editors and photgraphers, to put together a beautiful and highly impactful set of training courses that can be used in your own time, and in your own workshop.
Many of our students want to use this knowledge on their own bikes, and where better to start than in their own workshop and with their own tools?
There's also more good news..
Our shorter training courses are available for lifetime access, so you can come back over and over again to really get the material into your fingers.
Plus, there's even an opportunity to get personalised feedback and coaching from me online too.
That's why we've seen our students - whether online or in-house - take their mechanical skills to new heights every time.

THE CYCLE SYSTEMS ONLINE LEARNING PATH
The main problem with online forums and free YouTube videos..
One of the reasons we see our students succeed here at Cycle Systems, is because we offer you a clear learning path to success. Step One is for us to help you to accurately gauge your current mechanical level. (No point sending you stuff you already know.) Step Two is to lay out clear guidelines and a progression path that you will be able to quickly move through to attain the skills you are looking for. (With a little help on the way from us, naturally.)
This is the main problem with online forums and free YouTube videos, as you no doubt already know. You often have to sift through endless reams of video content to get the gold you were looking for (at best.) Or risk your neck in another online forum. Where participants seems to take delight in giving you the wrong info and/or being rude about it whilst they do.
Even worse, you get your buddies laughing at you on the club ride for presenting with "that same mechanical problem", or the local hipster mechanic sneering in that way that only local hipster mechanics can sneer because "it's you come back again".
(We don't teach you that sneer, by the way. Sorry.)
