Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop July 14th

It's that time again!

I know it's kind of short notice, but we've been really busy at the shop and I wanted to make sure I had the time to do one.

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 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 this Saturday, July 14th at 9:30 a.m..

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

Please pick me.... Please.... Please...Please.....

Patrick,

Pick me, pick me, pick me...... Please.

I promise to make this one (I missed a class that I signed up for earlier this year; however, there were circumstances which came up the night before that were completely beyond my control).

I still feel really bad as someone got screwed out of a spot in your class. If you don't allow me to attend, I certainly understand and respect your decision.

I'm coming from 290/Beltway 8 area if you want to meet over in that vicinity I'm down. I was just gonna cruise down 1960 to get there, nothing too exciting by any means.

Just to make it easy, let's meet at the CHEVRON station on the NE Corner of 290/1960 at 8:30. That should give us more than enough time to get there.
