Over three weeks we will cover the installation, overhaul, adjustment and maintenance of the bicycle's bearing systems (headsets, bottom brackets and hubs), freewheels and cassettes.
No previous bike knowledge is required or expected, but a willingness to learn and have fun is a must!
Class will be hands-on, so bring a functional bike and be ready to get greasy.
The fee for this class is a sliding scale: $45-85 for Bike Kitchen members or $85-125 for non-members. Enrolling in the class as a non-member also buys you a year-long membership at the Bike Kitchen. Class size is limited to eight. If you do not currently have a membership you MUST select a ticket price that has "Non-Member" in the description.
Refund Policy: we offer refunds up to 96 hours before the start of the class. Cancellation after that point involves forfeiting the class payment. If you are unable to attend a paid class, your new membership is still valid and you are welcome to visit us during regular shop hours and speak to our staff mechanics.
The class takes place over three Sundays, April 6th, 13th and 27th, all from 9:00 - 11:30am. Please note that this class DOES NOT meet on Easter Sunday, April 20th.
