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, and 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.
Students must be at least 18 years of age -- otherwise, all you need is the desire to learn!
All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.
What to Bring:
Your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don't mind getting black bike grease on.
This class will not run with fewer than 3 students, so sign yourself and a friend up!
eXceSs is a lifelong cyclist, Action Nerd, and pilot of SCUL (the Asylum's resident bicycle chopper gang). He continually hones his maintenance skills on the battle-damaged SCUL fleet, while maintaining his own, ever growing collection of outlandish bicycles. When not on two wheels eXceSs can be found wearing orange, working on computers, using strange capitalization, and teaching parkour.
