Your drivetrain is what powers your wheels and having a well maintained set can make your pedaling more efficient, and just a more pleasant experience. In this course we will cover everything you need to know to keep your peddling smooth and easy from cleaning all the way to what to do when disaster strikes.
We also cover how to index your gears and get them shifting smoothly.
The course covers the following:
- Measuring chain wear

- Gear Indexing
