Other Dates for this Event

We know that life gets busy, so now our Bike Maintenance 101 Clinics have the best of both 101 clinics combined into one night!

 

Minor Bike Maintenance:

Our mechanics will take you over the basics of how to properly maintain your bike between tune-ups. Topics include: chain cleaning, lubricating moving parts and taking you inside the lingo of the bike world. By the end of this class you'll have a good understanding of how all the parts on your bike work together and what you can do to keep your ride rolling smoothly.

Fix A Flat:

A basic demonstration of how to change a flat, geared towards the very beginner. How to know what size tube to use, what pressure to inflate your tires to, how to use a CO2 inflator, and the tools required will also be touched upon. Followed by a 20min practice time, where everybody gets hands on experience changing a flat. 

* What is NOT covered in this course is how to adjust breaks or gears, true wheels etc because they are too advanced for the time frame and some of these topics are covered in 201.

** We provide a bike for you to work on here in the store. Please leave your bike locked up outside.
