Event description

Description

Learn how to keep your wheels spinning smoothly in this one day class at the Bike Kitchen.

In this class you will learn how to dissasemble, inspect and rebuild wheel hubs. Dirt, water, and grime can find its way into the bearing system of a hub and eventually cause permanent damage to the bearing system. Grease also wears out over time and needs to be replaced (similar to a car's oil change). In this class you will learn how to identify bearing damage and prevent it by overhauling the hub.

In one class session we will cover the following topics:

  • Disassembling the hub to access the bearings
  • Hub Inspection and cleaning
  • Rebuilding the hub with new bearings and grease
  • Adjusting the hub to have acceptable bearing preload
  • Removing freewheels and cassettes to access the rear wheel bearings

The class takes place over one day:

  • Monday March 19th, from 6:00PM to 9:00PM

No previous bike knowledge is required or expected, but a willingness to learn and have fun is a must!

The class will be hands-on, so bring a bike and get ready to get greasy. If you don't have a wheel you want to rebuild, we have wheels that you can work on.

Food is not provided for our classes, but you are welcome to bring snacks.

The fee for this class is a sliding scale: $25-40 for Bike Kitchen members or $75-90 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 eight people. If you do not currently have a membership you MUST select a ticket price that has "Non-Member" in the description.

Refund Policy: we offer refunds up to 96 hours before the start of the class. Cancellation after that point involves forfeiting the class payment. 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.
