Those of you following us here at ATG-Training will know that we ran our first Level 3 course that was aimed purely at the road scene last week.
What a week it was! We started out by building factory wheels from DT Swiss Shimano and Mavic and showed how to lace Snowflake, Crows Foot and Three leading three trailing patterns. We also showed learners how to tie and solder and correctly install tubulars.
We had a day focusing on the technical developments of the road bike and discussed things like frame materials and geometrys, how to switch a set up from one bike to another bike so that it rides exactly how the last set up did and looked breifly at the different types of fit system there are to fit bike to rider. We also demonstrated the correct steps to take to perfect clipless pedal set up and worked out the similarities and differences between gear inches from a standard and compact chainset.
The last couple of days were devoted to high end groupsets. Learners had the chance to experience the latest from Shimano (Dura-Ace 7900 and Di2) Sram (Force) and Campagnolo (Record) learning how the different gruppos required different installation and set up techniques and how to get the maximum from them with a great looking set up that a Pro would be proud of.
Everyone had a fantastic week and learned loads of valuable tips that will see them achieving a great riding road bike – every time!
