This Winter, Revolutions Bicycle CoOp will offer our "Bicycle Overhaul" course. This is an extensive and fun seven-week bicycle repair and maintenance class designed for the home mechanic. Learn about your bicycle, system by system, as well as adjust, overhaul and replace worn parts. You will learn how to repair and prevent issues yourself. And after completing this course, you will have fully overhauled your own bicycle.
An individual repair stand and tools will be provided, for use during the class. Also included in the price of the class is the required textbook: Park Tool's BBB-3 Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair. Replacement parts that are needed can be found in our extensive used parts bins or purchased (for an additional fee).
Don’t have a bike you want to overhaul? You can purchase a used bicycle from Revolutions to overhaul and make your own (see below for more details).
