Summer Bike School (Monday/Wednesday)

Bike School
Event Date: 
Thursday, October 30, 2014 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Learn the joy of fixing your own bicycle with professional mechanics in our student workspace at the OP Barn! Our professional mechanic Al Hongo with assistant mechanic Ellie Bartlett will be teaching this 6-class session. This is not for credit but rather for self-empowerment. Each class is two hours, and together form a comprehensive series that will teach you to maintain and repair your standard road, mountain, or commuter bike.


The 6-part series will be on Mondays and Wednesdays: July 14, 16, 21, 23, 28 and 30


Topics covered:

  • Preventative maintenance
  • Flat repair
  • Wheel bearings
  • Cables & housing
  • Handbrakes
  • Chain & cogs

Please bring your own bicycle and clothes you're comfortable working in. Note that coaster brakes, internally geared hubs, and wheel building are not covered by this class. Pre-register and pay at the Barn - $65
