Repair Fundamentals (Three Part Class) - $120

The course consists of three 2-hour sessions. Students use their own bikes for hands-on practice. The class is a mix of lecture, demonstration and hands-on skills development as you will be learning the basics of a bicycle tune-up.

Class topics include: wheel anatomy and basic truing, hub cone adjustments, brake and derailleur adjustments, basic drive train maintenance and proper tool usage. Bring your own bike to work on and wear clothes you won’t mind getting dirty.

We will be adding more class dates as the summer progresses

Wheel Building - $150 (wheel parts not included)

This course is comprised of two 3-hour sessions. Students will leave the class with a new wheel built by their own hands! Students may even try for a two-wheel set (if they choose).
