Bike Edmonton has 2 bike repair courses scheduled at our South Community shop. Registration is required.
Bike Repair 101: Hands on intro to Bike Maintenance
Friday, March 29, 2019 6:30pm-9:30pm. $30 plus tax. In this hands-on workshop, our most popular class, you will gain confidence and save money by doing simple repairs yourself as well as preventing expensive parts from wearing out. Bring your bicycle so you can learn techniques specific to your components, or you can work on one of Bike Edmonton’s bikes. This is a great place to start if you have little or no experience working on bikes, and will cover: drivetrain cleaning and lubrication, flat tire repair, basic brake and gearing adjustments, and how to spot small problems before they become big problems.
Bike Repair 201: Wheels and Hubs
Friday, April 5, 2019, 6:30pm-9:30pm. $35 plus tax. The hub of the bicycle wheel is the heart of the bicycle. You'll learn to recognize problems, learn preventative maintenance/adjustments, and discover the simple elegance of cups, cones, and bearings. You'll get hands on experience with intermediate hub overhaul, cassette and freewheel removal and installation. This is an intermediate course. You should have enough experience to know how to remove the wheel from the bike. We recommend you take Bike Repair 101 beforehand, though it's not necessary to get the most out of this workshop.
