Bicycle Overhaul for the Home Mechanic
This bicycle repair and maintenance class is designed specifically for the home mechanic. After completing this course, you will have fully overhauled your own bicycle. An individual repair stand and tools will be provided. Learning about your machine, system by system, as well as adjusting, overhauling and replacing worn parts will be our focus. Replacement parts that are needed can be found in our extensive used parts bins or ordered new (for an additional fee). A professional bicycle mechanic will teach this class. Feel confident about your own bicycle and never worry about maintenance again. Learn how to repair and prevent issues yourself.
The class requires a textbook, included in the price of the class. Supplies and tools that you would like for your home shop will be available for purchase.
