Sign up today for the September Build-a-Bike class. This is an 18-hour, 6 session class that will teach you all you need to know to take care of and repair your own bike! Sign up here: http://septbuild-a-bike.eventbrite.com
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.
*Want to keep a bike at the end of the class? As a member of the class, you will receive a large discount off any of our refurbished sale bikes.
