class description 

The goal of this 7-class 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 Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair (BBB-4), but will present knowledge, experience and tricks obtained from many years working in a shop environment as well. The goal of the course is to cover all material required to perform our Bomber Tune level of bike service, and some more.
