Novice Class

This is a 6-hour class. Students get an
overview of many aspects of bicycle maintenance. They see
demonstrations as well as discuss and perform tire and tube
service, brake service, and gear adjustments. The class content
is similar to a 90-day check-up on the bike. This is an excellent
class for someone with a relatively modern or brand-new bike
who wishes to learn about maintenance but can only make a limited time 
commitment for the class. In the Novice class, the emphasis is on knowing when there is a problem and on
cleaning the bike. The presentations will often be descriptive.
For example, showing what rear sprockets are and now they
work is part of the class, but demonstrating or practicing their
removal is beyond the scope of this class.
