Thumbs up Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop June 21st!

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 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 June 21st, 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.

I would like to go. I have a huge interest in doing a lot of my own work. Especially since it's an older bike. I was teaching my wife how to ride and as she was idle she let the bike drop. I have had an oil leak ever since. I couldn't imagine it being a huge deal. And I know my bike needs a tune up, I just don't have the confidence in taking my bike apart and putting it back together.
So in short count me in.

For those of you unsure of how to keep your bike lubed and adjusted, this class is a must! I attended one last year, Patrick will give you more information than you know what to do with.

Patrick, you should video the workshops and sell them on CD. Then people can watch them and refresh their memory on what needs to be done.
