Bike Maintenance Clinics

One of the most crucial aspects of having a great bike ride is having a bike in great condition!  Our professional service department is always happy to dose out TLC to your two wheeled friend, but if you’re someone who loves to get your hands dirty, we salute you! 

We are hosting a 4 week series on bike maintenance that covers nearly every facet of keeping your bike in tip-top shape.  These Thursday evening courses can be taken individually ($25 a piece) or as a complete series ($80 for all).  All classes will be led by our Service Department Manager, Grady Underwood.  Clinics will run every Thursday at 6pm from February 18th through March 10th. 

 

Shifting, Feb. 18th

In the Shifting Clinic you will learn how to assess and adjust the gears of your bike.  We’ll cover all types of shifters, from road to trigger and grip shifters. 

 

Brakes, Feb. 25th

The Brake Clinic will educate you on adjusting your bike’s braking system to have confident, controlled stopping power.  We’ll cover rim brakes and disc brakes, and answer any questions you may have.

 

Bearings, March 3rd

An often overlooked, but crucial, topic in bike maintenance.  Your bike’s bearings (headset, hubs, bottom bracket) need adjustments to work properly and dramatically increase longevity.

 

Wheels, March 10th

The Wheel Clinic will cover basic concepts of keeping your wheels straight, true and rolling well for years to come!

 

 

We would appreciate if you call, email or stop by the shop to sign-up for the clinics.  You are welcome to take any single clinic, but those who take all clinics will receive a $25 discount!  Drop-ins are also welcome.  RSVP on Facebook here (not required but helpful to spread the word!)
