Event description

Description

The Common Wheel is proud to announce the return of our Adult Mechanics Class. This class is geared for the 18+ crowd and provides students with an opportunity to get hands-on experience working on their own bikes under the instruction and guidance of experienced bicycle technicians.

1 session consists of 4 classes, each focused on particular topics:

Tuesday, November 6: Flat Repair, Standard Maintenance, Cleaning, Wear Items

Thursday, November 8: Bearings, Discussion of Wheel Truing

Tuesday, November 13: Brakes, Wheel Truing as needed

Thursday, November 15: Drivetrain, Shifting

Students may bring their own bikes, but may also use bikes provided by The Common Wheel for the hands-on portions of the program.

The goal of the class is to provide concrete instruction and hands-on experience to empower the at-home mechanic. It is not intended to substitute for professional bike shop service and payment of program fees explicitly does not comes with a guarantee that a student's bike will be "tuned-up" or "overhauled" by the end of the course. If you bring a bike in good condition, it will leave as good if not better. If you bring a bike that is in need of extensive services, we cannot promise that you will be able to finish all repairs by course end.

Questions and comments can be directed to Matthew Mendez, Program Director at The Common Wheel. email: matthew@thecommonwheel.com; phone: 717.461.3386, option 2

Please Note: 1 "ticket" purchase is for all 4 class sessions.
