For most of us, changing a tyre on a bike is something we hope we never have to do. It is a difficult and fiddly process, that can bring frustration to even the most patient among us.
Well if that is you, then you need Colby Dean around!
As part of the Red Cross Cadets team rotations, the Mountain Bike option provided some opportunities to learn skills – one of which was a tyre changing lesson and then timed challenge. Students were asked to completely change and then inflate a tyre on a bike, and were timed as they went. Colby’s result was achieved in the first week, and no-body else came close. In 1 minute and 24 seconds, he achieved the almost miraculous by completing the task. For his efforts, the Dunsborough Bike Shed donated an impressive inflating device as a prize.
Well done Colby. Leave your number at the front desk, and we may call upon you in our times of bike-tyre-changing need! Simply sensational.
