Your favorite Common Cycle mechanics will be teaching a bike maintenance class this fall! The class starts next wednesday, Sept. 14, at 6 PM (so sign up now!–scroll down to “bike clinic”) and is a collaboration with UM’s Outdoor Adventures Program. The 5-week series will go something like this:
9/14: Basic care, cleaning, and maintenance
9/21: wheels, tires, tubes, and intro to hubs
9/28: Hubs, Bottom Brackets, and Headsets
10/5: Brakes and Derailleurs
10/12: Cranks/chainrings, Handlebars, stems, shifters, levers
There is a fee: $5 per class, or $20 for the whole shebang, but that money will go towards snacks and beverages for an optional post-or-mid-series bike ride (or other activity, depending on weather and folks’ preferences).
Whether you’ve been working on bikes for a while and want to freshen up, or if you’re just starting to get your hands greasy, or if you think (rightly so) that Eric, Sam, Sandy, Ben, and Molly are super cool and you want to learn everything they know…come on out!
Hope to see you next wednesday!
