Ready to fine-tune your bike maintenance skills?
The next session of our hands-on bike maintenance course is now open for registration! You’ll build a solid foundation on how all the parts of a bike work and how to do your own repairs. The classes are taught by the expert mechanics at Full Cycle and include a personal copy of the Park Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair and a 15% discount on Park and Pedro’s tools for your personal collection.
The goal of this course is to provide the skill set and knowledge requisite to perform a comprehensive bicycle tune up and fully understand the concepts and tools employed therein. We will draw principally from the Park Tool blue book (BBB-2), but will present knowledge, experience and tricks obtained from many years working in a shop environment as well. The Park book is included with the course fee. The goal of the course is to cover all material requisite to perform our “Maintenance Package” tune offered at the shop, and more. This tune includes the following services:
Session 1 – Introduction, Tools, Bicycle Evaluation
Session 2 – Wheels
Session 3 – Drivetrain
Session 4 – Shifters, Derailleurs, and Cables
Session 5 – Brakes
Session 6 – Headsets, Stems, Saddles, Seatposts, and Final Touches
You will also be given the skills to properly troubleshoot and “safety check” all component groups found on virtually all types of bicycles.
