Wrench like a pro with the help of our expert, on-site mechanics.

 

Know Your Bike:

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; some of these topics are covered in Bike Maintenance 201.
