Franklinton Cycleworks is hosting another round of Bike School beginning Monday April 17th 2017.
The west side’s bicycle cooperative is offering a four week course, totaling 8 hours of classroom time, which will provide participants with a general understanding of bike anatomy/functionality and how to perform common bike repairs. Bike School 101 sessions will be held Mondays from 6:30 to 8:30 PM beginning April 17th and ending May 8th. Whether you’re an aspiring mechanic looking for a place to start, or just want to be self-sufficient in basic maintenance, this is the class for you. Class sessions are limited to 12 participants and the total cost is $80. Volunteers, or those who will volunteer, may use shop credit to pay for the class. Please email Jonathan at firstname.lastname@example.org for the appropriate discount code.
Week 1 – Basic Bike Anatomy and Flat Repair
Week 2 – Wheel Truing and hub overhaul
Week 3 – Derailleur Adjustment and Drive Train Maintenance
Week 4 – Brake Adjustment/ Running new cables
Our classes are a mixture of lecture, lab and study. The class instructor will provide context for the repairs and give demonstrations on proper technique, and then lead labs in which students practice these skills on their own bikes (or a shop bike if preferred). Students will be offered the opportunity to practice further on Tuesday evenings, or Saturday afternoons, although it’s not required.
