-how and when to patch and when to replace the inner tube
-how to check your tires for wear and tear and know when to replace them
-tools and gadgets available to help you in repairs, prevention, and tire maintenance

All tools and materials you need to practice on will be provided, and all basic flat-repair tools will be available on site for purchase if you so desire!
