Bike Maintenance 2#

Bike Maintenance 2

In this second part intro to bicycle mechanics class we will focus on taking maintenance up a notch. Everything covered can easily be done at home to keep your bike happy. If this is your first time trying out at home maintenance on a bicycle, we recommend you take the Maintenance 1 class first. There we cover foundational topics like fix a flat. We will cover the following topics as time allows:

  1. Cables and housing- a basic overview
  2. Barrel adjusters- use to improve performance for braking and shifting
  3. Brakes- types of braking systems and adjustments you can make beyond barrel adjusters
  4. What's that sound?- a basic diagnosis of problems

Students should come to class already knowing what kind of brakes they have. This might require some research, but don't be afraid to jump in to the next level!

Students that complete the class will receive free tire levers or patch kit.
