What To Expect
The Basic Bicycle Maintenance Course is a wonderful resource for cyclists who want to feel more self-sufficient on the road (or the trail). It will help you digest the information found in a bike repair manual or online and help you know what to ask for when you bring your bike in for maintenance or repair.
While we won't turn you into a seasoned bike mechanic in four short classes, here is what you will feel comfortable with after attending our Basic
Bicycle Maintenance Course:
- Repairing a flat tire on your front and rear wheel
- Increased familiarity with bike terms and tools
- Adjusting cable tension for tuning your brakes
- Diagnosing brake pad problems
- Proper chain cleaning and lubrication
- Knowing when to get a tune-up or an overhaul (and what that means)
