Posted: May 14th, 2012 | Filed under: Featured | Tags: , , , , , | 2 Comments »

We are happy to announce that we will begin to offer weekly repair and maintenance classes on Sunday mornings from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Beginning on June 17th you are invited to join Bicycle Therapy veterans Josh Robeson and Dawn Riddle for hands-on instruction.

The classes are broken up into four topic specific sessions covering everything from flat tire repair to chain installation and gear adjustment.

The first class is a “Roadside Repair” course intended to prepare you for small emergencies such as flat tires and chain derailment. The class costs $15 which includes a set of tire lever, a patch kit and an inner tube.

The second, third and fourth classes are for the more mechanically advanced cyclist, as well as those who have completed the roadside repair course. The topics covered are:

  • Brakes – Cable lubrication, pad replacement, and brake adjustment.
  • Derailleurs – Adjustment, trouble shooting, and lubrication.
  • Chain and drive train – Removal, installation, and cleaning techniques.

These classes will be held on June 24th, July 1st, and July 8th and are offered only as a complete package. The fee is $45 for all three and includes a chain tool, master link pliers, lubricant, and cleaning solution.

Space in the classes is very limited so please call (215)735-7849 and register soon.
