Box Dog Bikes Maintenance Class Calendar for Summer Fall 2011

Here is a description 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 and Cables:  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.  The only class with the prerequisite that student understands the basics of cable replacement as learned in the brakes and cables class.  We learn about how to achieve and 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: This class is about getting mechanical and a bit more greasey than the rest.  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.

Call 415 431 9627 during open hours to sign up.

I hope you can sign up for as many as you are interested in.
