parktoolschoolHello soon-to be-bike mechanic!

We have finalized our schedule and have included some flexible scheduling options.

Due to popular demand, we will be running two courses one in February and a second in March 2016.

The Sundays of the first course, starting February 14, will be 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

The Sundays of the second course, starting 6 March 2016, will be 12:00-5:00 PM.

You are not registered in a course until you pay your $50 deposit.  Course placements are first-come, first-served.  Course must be paid in full 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the first day.

To Register:

BBB-3_0012.  Prepare yourself!

You may pick up your manual early once your course is paid.  (This is strongly recommended and a good way to get a jumpstart on the course, so that you can focus more on the hands-on portion)

 

3.  Bring a bike!

You are strongly encouraged to bring your own bicycle to work on.  If you don’t have a bicycle to work on, we can loan you one from our project bikes to work on.  Alternatively we do sell used bike frames for $40 and have many to choose from. Please be aware that any parts from the shop that you install on your bike you must pay for. We have many new and used parts.

We will also have a build bike that we will be teaching you repair skills on.  At the end of the course, this bike will be put up for sale in our shop.
