Attending the Cycle Show? Save £50 off Theory one and visit the Cytech stand for your chance to win!

Posted on in Business News ,Brands & Products News , Cycles News

Cytech are attending the Cycle Show and will be demonstrating key practices in bike maintenance that are useful for both the trade and public, as well as offering the public discount codes and chances to win!

Cytech delivers training and promotion of technical skills to the bicycle trade and cyclists worldwide. From the basics of bicycle maintenance to complex bike builds and servicing of the newest and most technical products.

At the Cycle Show Cytech experts will be on hand to answer any questions from both the trade and public about the world-leading bicycle maintenance courses.

Cytech will be at the show on all days at stand G531. 

 

Invest in your greatest asset and get £50 off Cytech Theory One

We believe that every specialist cycle trade employee should be armed with the knowledge and skills to better understand how the business is run, manage customer expectations, work safely and efficiently in the retail environment and even carry out some of the more basic workshop activities. 

Cytech courses encompass the basics of cycle mechanics right through to dealing with the most advanced and high-tech components and parts, demonstrating competency and commitment to continued development and improvement.

Being Cytech qualified not only gives your staff the confidence they need to do their job to the highest of their ability, but it also gives your customers peace of mind that their bike is in safe hands.

Whilst Cytech technical two is the industry standard for professional cycle technicians and Cytech technical three represents the pinnacle of technical proficiency, getting qualified to a minimum of Cytech theory one is key for every cycle trade employee, no matter what their role within in the business.

Alongside the show we're offering £50 off our Theory one course, just use the code CS22 on the payment review stage. Expires 01/05/2022.

 

2 chances to win!

The Cytech stand will also be giving you two opportunities to win either a Cytech home mechanic course or £300 off your next Cytech practical course!

To win you will simply need to visit the stand and guess the amount of tyre levers in a jar.

 

 

Maintaining Your e-bike

Have you got an e-bike for the first time? Not sure how to maintain it? Join the experts on maintenance from Activate Cycle Academy and Cytech for a talk on how to look after your beloved new electric bike and how to keep it performing at its super charged best.

We will talk all things maintenance and servicing, and how it may differ from a normal bike. Cleaning, lubrication, adjustment, and electrical safety.

It will all be covered in this 30-minute talk with a chance to ask Jack your burning questions on e-bike maintenance.

The seminar will be taking place on the Experts stage.

In this 30 minute presentation you can hear the secrets that come with years of experience from which tools we should all have, to how to clean and lubricate, and how to prolong the life of your pride and joy.

The seminar will be taking place on the Experts stage.
