Bike Repair Classes Start Tonight

Vintage Bicycle Repair

We’re excited to announce that now you can learn Bicycle Repair and Maintenance every Wednesday night at Bicycle Roots! Starting tonight, we are offering a course of six classes, with each class covering a different topic.

Our first class, taking place TONIGHT, Wednesday, December 3rd at 7:00pm, is “Winter Riding 101.” We will cover basic bicycle maintenance, essential winter riding accessories, and how to dress comfortably for safe and fun winter riding!

Our classes are aimed at beginners and are open to everyone. There is a $10.00 fee to attend each class, but if you make a purchase after the class we will apply the fee towards your purchase.

Future classes will cover the following topics: Tires & Inner Tubes, Brakes, Gears, Bearings, and Wheels. Classes will be given in a demonstration format, meaning you will not be able to fix your own bike during the course of the class.Aufblasbare Spielzeuge
