Our bicycle mechanics class is a great chance to start feeling confident about taking care of your own bike. The class starts at 6:30pm and you’ll learn at least to manage the following tasks.
- Dismount/remount wheels, remove tire, remove tube, inspect rim tape, repair tube (shop tube, not yours) and minor wheel tuning for proper braking
- Inspect and adjust brakes/cables
- Inspect crank-arm and pedals, inspect and lubricate chain
- Inspect derailleur cables and make minor derailleur adjustments
Happy holidays, everyone! A quick update on our holiday schedule: we’re going to be closing at 3pm on Christmas Eve and closed all day on Christmas. We will also be closed on New Year’s Day to recover from all the riding we’re planning on doing the night before. Santa knows what we’re talking about. Right, Santa?
Clearly he’s too busy delivering presents on his awesome cargo bike to stop and chat.
The rain doesn’t seem to want to let up so the Bike Lights event is being postponed. We’ll be back at the Braddock Road Metro station (same place) from 430-6pm (same time) next Tuesday (10/28) with the City of Alexandria. See you guys then!
