Over three weeks we will cover installing and removing tubes and tires (i.e. fixing a flat), installing brake and shift cables, adjusting brakes and gears, chain maintenance and truing wheels.
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 bike and get 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 ten. If you do not currently have a membership you MUST select a ticket price that has "Non-Member" in the description.
Refund Policy: due to limited resources, no refunds, or re-scheduling can be offered. 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 Mondays, July 18th and 25th and August 1st, all 7:00-9:30pm.
