EPISODE 163 – eBikes and the Modern Workshop

show notes

John Galloway was a pro mechanic in the 1990s and finished up pretty much when Sean started out.

In this week's episode they look at how a 1990s mechanic would fare in a modern workshop and vice versa!

This, of course gives us the excuse to talk about eBikes, disc brakes and electronic Rohloff hubs as well as cantilever brakes, broken anodised purple components and wheelbuilding. Amazingly, gravel bikes, the Girvan flex stem and John's drop barred mountain bikes don't get a look in.

why work with us

Cycle Systems courses looked like a perfect fit... I expanded my scope, lost a few bad habits and discovered tricks that would have saved me hours of grief in the past.
