Bicycle Maintenance Classes

Bicycle Maintenance Classes


Bike maintenance classes are all hands-on, conducted in the shop. Some classes have pre-class videos that you are encouraged to watch beforehand. Classes that are "+parts" means we will be replacing parts that you will keep if we are working on your bike. In most cases we will be working primarily on the customer's bike/gear. If you would like to learn a skill, but do not have the correct bike or gear to learn the skill, one will be provided. The customer will still be charged for inventory used.

Any parts used during classes will be discounted 10%. Some brands are not discountable.
