Event Details

Basic Bike Maintenance

Description:

Topics covered in the course will build upon the skills foundation earned by students in Bicycle Maintenance I. They include rear hub overhaul, in which students will disassemble their hubs, repack them and reassemble them; both radial and lateral wheel truing; headset overhaul, where students will gain confidence in bicycle steering systems; and front derailleur adjustments. Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. Although this is an advanced course, some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course.

Class Goals:

The goal of this course is to provide students with a deeper understanding of the inner workings of their bicycle, and how to diagnose and maintain them.

Prerequisites:

Bicycle Maintenance I *No exceptions.* Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Students should bring their bicycle and wear clothing they don't mind getting grease on. Covered shoes are recommended.

Instructor Biography:

Seven of Nine


“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own custom chopper bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. She’s been teaching bicycle maintenance at the Asylum over the last year. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.
