The classes are all stand alone for $35, but if you sign up for 3 or more the classes are $30 each. None of the classes require previous bike repair ability, just an interest and a willingness to get your hands dirty. Below is a further description of each of the classes.
Know Your Bike: Learn all the names of the parts of your bike; learn how to replace an inner tube (fix a flat); learn the wonders of the rag, cleaning your bike keeps your brakes working better, and your chain shifting more reliably.
Brakes: Learn the basics of your braking system. We learn how to replace cables and housing, replace brake pads, and conduct the various adjustments necessary to get a strong and centered brake.
Shifting: Learn the basics of your gear shifting system. We learn how to replace cables and housing. We learn about what is necessary to maintain clean/crisp shifting in both front and rear derailleurs.
The Bicycle Wheel: Adjusting hubs and truing rims. We learn how to keep your hubs spinning smoothly without wobble, and how to straighten and round your rims.
Bearing Systems: The only advanced class, if there is one here. We take apart hubs, bottom brackets and headsets; repack them; and adjust the bearings. Time permitting, and interest level, you will get the opportunity to overhaul one or two of these bicycle components.
I hope you can sign up for as many as you are interested in.
