DCA *New Class* Bicycle Shop: Tires, Brakes, Derailleurs & Chains
Thu 7/24/2014 at 5:30 PM -- Tue 7/29/2014 at 6:30 PM
TechShop DC-Arlington

We have just added a brand new class to our calendar! Please join us for TechShop's very first class in bike mechanics with a focus on tires, brakes, derailleurs and chains.


In this bicycle maintenance class, you will learn how to inflate tires, change tires (inner tubes and outer tires), patch tires, adjust brakes, replace brakes, adjust derailleurs, lubricate chains, and replace chains. In other words, you will learn how to fix some of the most common bike problems so you can do more repairs yourself and hassle less with taking your bike to a professional mechanic. This course also provides a foundation of introductory knowledge and skills you can build on for more ambitious projects like modding bikes and building custom bikes. Feel free to bring in your own bike to work on, but understand that the instructor won’t be able to stop class to help you with problems or parts that are outside the scope of this course.

Courses will be offered on
