Learn how to maintain your bicycle! The four classes in this course will cover the following topics:
• Changing a flat tire
• Introduction to drive systems and rear derailleurs
• Brake systems overhaul
• Introduction to bearings systems and front hub overhaul
Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. This is a basic course, and some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course. However, the course does reach a level of detail at which students who are intending to expand their knowledge of bicycles find it helpful to do some light note-taking during lecture time.
Students will come out of this course with the ability to tend to the most common maintenance requirements of their bicycle.
All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.
Bring your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don’t mind getting grease on.
This class starts April 11 @ 7PM and meets 3 additional Thursdays.
Please note, this class will not run with fewer than 3 students.
