The first summer mechanics course will be Monday June 1st

Fix your Bike

Our first course will be Monday June 1st from 4-7pm.  Ian and I will be giving an overview of the tools involved in working on most bicycles, and how to use them.  We will likely have time to cover some other topics like brake and shifting adjustment as well.  Please if you plan on attending the other mechanics sessions this summer, I would really like for you to be at this session.  While most folks think they know how to use tools, you’d be surprised by the subtle and sometimes counter intuitive nature of proper tool use.  What I’m trying to say is don’t be cocky, come learn something 🙂

Now the Mechanics Mayhem begins!!!

Currently only Jeremy has said he would like to do it. If you don’t want to do brakes then… Read more »

Mechanics workshop: Brakes

This will be a two session workshop.  There are many kinds of brakes, and understanding and adjusting them takes practice.  It is also very important that if you are working on your brakes you really understand what you’re doing. Mistakes can make your bike very unsafe.  So we will work on brakes two weeks in… Read more »

Oh mY it’S HALLOWEEEEEEEENNNNNNNNNN!!!!!! Workshop cancelled!

Apparently I’m an old curmudgeon, who doesn’t pay attention to cool holidays. I didn’t realize that I scheduled the front shifting workshop on Halloween.  The workshop is cancelled because you should all be going out and having fun!  I will try to get in touch with everyone that said they are coming on my last… Read more »
