GEARS MASTERCLASS - earn to fix your own bike at home - 3 hour daytime class
We have redesigned our entire class schedule. Our Wednesday evenings classes cover the basics of bicycles: intro to bikes, punctures and emergency repairs, intro to gears and intro to brakes.
If you want to learn more, and / or become a home mechanic to fix your bike and your family's, then the Friday Masterclasses are for you.
We recommend you sign up for this class only if you have followed our intro to gears class or equivalent, as it is fast paced.
Our masterclasses are very hands on, as there are only 4 people per class.Things you will learn, and more if we have time:
- How to replace a cable
- How to replace a deraileur
- Advanced gear adjustments and limit screws
You will be working on your own bike, so please bring it with you! You will also work on other bikes to learn about other gear systems.
