REGISTRATION CLOSED!! Complete Overhaul Bike Class at the Sibley Bike Depot (May)

Class Time: Thurs evenings May 14-June 4 6:30-9pm

This class will build upon the skills taught in the Basic Bike Maintenance class and expand through overhauling an entire bicycle. Participants will take apart, clean, and repack all bearing systems, including hubs, headsets, and bottom brackets. In addition, the will install new cables and housing on brakes and derailleurs as needed, and lubricate/adjust all shifting systems. In full, folks attending this class will learn how to perform a complete tune-up/overhaul of a bicycle. Participants will work with the same bike through the class, in order to see the complexities and intricacies of one specific bicycle.

This is an advanced beginner/intermediate level class that builds upon the principles taught in Sibley's Basic Bike Maintenance. Students who have taken Basic are welcomed to register (if you feel worried about your mechanical level, feel free to come to Open Shop hours to improve your basics). Folks who have some basic bike maintenance experience but have not taken Basic Bike Maintenance are welcomed to attend as well.

All participants will fix SHOP BIKES. At the end of the class, we will discuss different possibilities and reach consensus on an organization (or multiple organizations) to donate the bikes to.

Place: Sibley Bike Depot, 712 University Avenue in St. Paul (1.5 blocks west of Dale Street on University)

Maximum 20 participants
