Park Tool School

Hey gentle men and gentle women,
We’re again offering our Park Tool School, the 30-hour bike mechanics course.  During the course, we go over many aspects of bicycle mechanics, and try hard to offer our students a very well-rounded experience!  Our next session begins on March 18th.

Course costs are $315 normal registration, or $262.50 for Students/Low income.  It includes a month of shop use from the beginning of the course, 30 hours of instruction, and a copy of a Park Tools repair manual.  The course will be a series of workshops held in our shop, focusing on:

Flat repair
Wheel truing
Tool usage, torque
Mechanical disk and rim brake adjustment
Drive-train adjustments, installations
Bearing overhauls
Drive-train cleaning
On-ride repairs
…and more!

Two areas we do not cover in-depth are:
Hydraulic disk/rim brakes
This is due to the fact we rarely are asked to service these items in our shop, and aren’t set up do so.

Our course dates will be:
Tues March 18, 6:30 – 9:00pm
Wed March 19, 6:30 – 9:00pm
Sunday March 23, 10:00 – 4:00pm
Tues March 25, 6:30 – 9:00pm
Sunday March 30, 10:00 – 6:00pm
Tues April 1, 6:30 – 9:00pm
Wed April 2, 6:30 – 9:00pm
Sunday April 6th, 10:00am – 4:00pm

To register, call our shop, or drop by in person, to pay our $50 deposit to hold your space.  Class sizes are limited at four people.
