Complete Bicycle Overhaul at Cycles for Change (formerly Sibley Bike Depot) (May)
This intermediate class will build upon the skills taught in the Basic Bike Maintenance class and expand through overhauling an entire bicycle. It's recommended that students have taken the Basic class or have a similar beginning familiarity with bicycle repair. 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. Note: All class participants will fix up SHOP BIKES during this class! Bikes fixed up will go into one of Sibley's many community programs designed to promote biking!
The class will be 5 Sundays: Apr 29 and May 6, 13, 20, and 27 from 5-7pm each day.
