bicycle maintenance classes

Filed under: bike repair classes, Events — schmadzie @ 9:59 pm

so, we are finally going to hold the long awaited mechanic classes many people have wanted for quite some time. The idea is to run them on Tuesday nights from 6:30pm till 9pm. Small classes, very hands on, with your bike and tools, so you can actually remember how to do it later. Cost for now will be $40 a night, which will need to be paid on booking over the phone or in person, to reserve your spot.

So, the preliminary timetable is

Tue 21 November Basics – wheel removal, how to fix a flat, looking after your bike and making it more comfortable and more useful

Tue 28 November Brakes and Gears – replacing cables and brakepads and adjusting

Tue 5 December Bearings – bearing servicing, and precision adjustments

Tue 12 December Basics – wheel removal, how to fix a flat, looking after your bike and making it more comfortable and more useful
