  • PATCH ME, BABY
    Monday, July 16, 2012 at 7 p.m.

    Flat tires are fixable, and this is the class to learn how to patch a tube, boot a tire, and learn a few different techniques to do both. There is more than one way to mount a tire on a rim.

  • BIKE CHECK
    Monday, July 23, 2012 at 7 p.m.

    Before you can fix a bike, you have to know how to diagnose what is wrong with it in the first place. This class is all about running through a quick inspection of a bike to determine what, if anything, needs to be done to keep it running.

  • FIXIN UR FIXIE
    Monday, July 30 at 7 p.m.

    Ride single speed, or fixed, and have a creaking noise you can’t get rid of? Have your chain too tight, or too loose? Did you buy a conversion, or a low end Craigslist bike, and want to know what the heck is making that clunking feeling every time you brake, turn the bars, or pedal? This is a great entry level class into finding and fixing some basic single-speed bike problems. It is recommended that you’ve taken our HANGING WITH TOOLS and BIKE ANATOMY 101 class before taking this one, but this is our first time around and we’re going to see how it goes.
