Basic Bike Maintenance Class 11/21/09

It's that time again!

I've been involved with MH ever since it's inception, when Chris invited me over to post and help with tech questions etc.

I would like to take it a step further.

We see bikes daily at the shop that are in desperate need of basic maintenance.
Minor things that can easily be done by their owners but aren't, and then do turn into something major.

Most of the time it's because the owner isn't aware of what it is or how to do it.

So here's what I'm going to do;

Once a month on a Saturday at 9:30 a.m., we will be having a free Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop.

I will choose one participants bike, we will put it on a lift and go over all of the basic maintenance items that need to be done, and how to do them.

At the same time we will answer any basic maintenance questions you may have.

Because I would like everyone attending to be able to see everything, I'm limiting the workshop to 10-14 attendees each time.

The next one will be Saturday November 21st at 9:30 a.m..

If the weather is too bad to ride, no worries, I'll put one of my bikes up.

We'll also be kicking off our Pre-Thanksgiving Sale starting on the 21st also!

Hope to see you all there!


Please post up on this thread if you're planning to attending.

I'm posting this on another forum as well, so if you post you're coming here, no need to add your name over there.

The class runs 2 to 2.5 hours depending on how many questions there are.

I highly recommend this! Patrick is very, very generous for offering these. It is very, very informative for those of us who do not do much wrenching. Ultimately, it will save you a ton of money on repairs by taking care of your bike properly.
