  • Basic principles of cable systems
  • The differences between your brake and shifting systems
  • Proper derailleur set-up
  • Proper brake set-up
  • Evaluation of systems for wear and replacement
  • Adjusting both systems to achieve maximum possible performance
  • Proper replacement of cables and housing
