From basic beginner to advance cycle maintenance course group/club or 121 training FTR can help and can also tailor make a cycle maintenance course’s to YOU needs and bike.
Rob from FTR is the main cycle maintenance course instructor and the courses are based on the Park Tools School program and a few extras that from Rob’s vast experience from his many years cycling, working as a race mechanic and been a aircraft engineer that FTR sure you will benefit from.
Most cycle maintenance courses require the Park Big Blue Book of bike repairs (book is included in price) as it is easy to use, follow, full of pictures and is a great reference from the basic jobs up to the advanced level mechanic.
The cycle maintenance courses are not used to service the bike but to learn the skills needed, so you can practice and carry out work at home saving money in the long term. Courses have a lot of information and subjects to cover so are delivered with mix of lectures, demos and some hand on skills. The Intermediate and Advance been the most hands on.
Students are encouraged to bring their own bike and any cycle tools that they might have. (Use of tools and bike stands are provided for course) So Rob can tailor the information to your own bike and advise on any future tools you might need post course.

Maintenance courses from the Park Tool School program.
Below are some very kind words from a customer that had a 121 cycle maintenance course, that covered some basic checks/repairs/adjustments to some more advance repairs to keep their bikes running smoothly.
Rob is one of the most knowledgeable, calm, friendly and helpful tradesmen I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He came over to our house for the day to service three bikes we will be taking on a ride to Spain and I asked him to spend the day with me so I could learn about doing the various repairs during our trip. He explained everything in a very clear and concise way without using lots of technical jargon and he very rapidly got my bike running smoothly again. He is very reasonable in all aspects of his business and I could not recommend him more highly.
