Starting Wednesday, February 4th, we will test offering 1 hour mini repair clinics. The clinic will be at the beginning of the 6 – 9 PM Open Shop. The clinics will be novice oriented and friendly and will include instruction and hands-on your own bike. Standard donation for shop use is requested.
If they choose to, students may then stay and use their new knowledge with the volunteer staff on hand for assistance.
Brake inspection and adjustment
Lubrication (chain and cables)
The date of each clinic is on our calendar.

- Inspect and adjust brakes/cables
- Inspect crank-arm and pedals, inspect and lubricate chain
- Inspect derailleur cables and make minor derailleur adjustments
Our Aug 5 Advanced Bicycle Maintenance class has been moved to Aug 19, due to a power outage as a result of the recent storm. Spaces are available! Check the courses tab and sign up!
