May is Bike Month!
Save the Date::: Bike Fest RI ~ Sat May 21st
And, what better way to celebrate than to learn how to fix up your own set of wheels in our Build-a-Bike class?
May Build-a-Bike Schedule: 6 Classes, 18 hours
Mondays 6:00- 9:00pm (5/9, 5/16, 5/23)
Wednesdays 6:00- 9:00pm (5/11, 5/18, 5/25)
Class Content: Bike parts overview, bike assessment & diagnosis, Patching a flat, replacing tubes and tires, Overhauling hubs, Wheel truing, Overhauling bottom brackets and headsets, Adjusting brakes, Adjusting shift systems and derailleurs
Hands-on: This class is great in that it allows for lots of hands-on learning time under the supervision of our knowledgeable and skilled mechanics. We, however, advise against working on your own bike during course time. We have a full stock of donated bikes to work on and would love for you to practice and make all of your mistakes on our bikes (instead of yours)!
Class Price: $200*
*Financial aid/work trade granted on a case-by-case basis, send an email for more information.
