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.
