This course is designed for any man or woman who would like to boldly learn the basics of bicycle repair and maintenance in a friendly and supportive environment. You will get real, hands-on experience using your own bike, becoming comfortable on keeping it running smoothly and clean between major tune-ups.

The class will cover the anatomy of the bicycle and bicycle tool use, going well beyond the basics of flat repair and lubrication, delving into brake and derailleur adjustments and the many details that escape notice until expensive parts need to be replaced. With this basic skill set, you’ll be ready to diagnose and repair common problems, becoming a more confident and empowered cyclist.

Areas of bicycle maintenance that will be covered include:

Week 1 – Introduction to the course, flat repair and drivetrain basics.
Week 2 – Gears, shifters, and brakes
Week 3 – Hubs, headsets, bottom brackets and cranksets.

The class is a total of 7.5 hours, split into three 2.5-hour sessions. Sessions will take place on Wednesdays, February 15th, February 22nd, and March 1st from 6-8:30pm. You will be provided Park Tool’s “Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair” – a $24.99 value – and be expected to bring your own bicycle. Tools will be provided. Cost of the class will be $150, which includes 7.5 hours of instruction, the book; and a 15% off coupon for purchasing tools, parts and accessories.
