Mini Repair Clinic Trial

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.

Subjects include:


Brake inspection and adjustment

Lubrication (chain and cables)

Shifter/derailleur adjustment

The date of each clinic is on our calendar.
