Course Completed, the fun starts here!


My pride and joy, stripped-down, new inner and outer cables. headset and bottom bracket removed and re-greased and completely rebuilt by my own fair hands. Wheels built on the course by Paul, now trading as ‘MelloVelo’.

Well, I did it!

I am not a natural mechanic, being more akin to nursing patients than dealing with bikes and components, but under the careful guidance of Jon and David I succeeded in passing the theory elements of the 2 week Level 2/3 IMI accredited training course.

I am now planning some time in the workshop to get my hands dirty and improve my day to day mechanic skills, so I will be raring to go for event support work in 2020.

Building wheels, Paul ‘MelloVelo’ 3rd from the right. His 1st wheel!

Looking forward to a winter in the workshop!

Thanks for a great 2 weeks chaps-but come on ladies. We need more female mechanics. If I can do it you can too.
