Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop April 7th

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;

Every 2nd Saturday of the month 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.

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

Hope to see you all there!


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

Hmm, while thats a good point, the thread title says April 7th(even though its the 1st saturday of the month).

Have no fear, Patrick will clarify and all will be well in the world.

My bad. Because the CMRA race weekend is the 13-15th at TWS (Texas World Speedway), it's going to be the 7th this month.

Well...technically...if you are considering the WHOLE weekend...the 1st is on Sunday sooo...lol...it's kinda, sorta the first weekend so we'll pretend the 7th of April is the second weekend. I know, I know...it's a stretch. I try. :confused1
