Event description

Description

Bicycle Mechanics 101 is a thorough introduction to bicycle mechanics. Students will receive instruction on the systems and parts of the bicycle and will practice common repairs on our designated class bikes.

Class is held from 6:00-8:00 pm on Wednesdays for six consecutive weeks. Topics include:

● Bicycle anatomy & maintenance
● Hubs and Headsets
● Bottom Brackets
● Wheels
● Cables and Housing
● Braking
● Shifting

Classes are held at the shop and taught by a professional mechanic.

While students work on designated class bikes that we provide, they are encouraged to ride or bring their personal bikes and ask specific questions about how to apply their skills and knowledge to their own bikes.

Those seeking additional one on one mechanic support to work on personal projects can check out our Guided Repair program.

Workshop tuition fees support Old Spokes Home's mission to create access to bikes and the opportunities they provide for our whole community. And, students are welcome to apply their new skills by volunteering with us to help refurbish bikes for our Everybody Bikes program, which makes bikes affordable and accessible to low-income Vermonters. Visit our volunteer page to learn more about current opportunities (https://www.oldspokeshome.com/volunteer).
