Class 3: Womens Intensive Bike Maintenance Class (3 Class Series)

Class 3: Womens Intensive Bike Maintenance Class (3 Class Series)

Overview:

The Women’s Bike Maintenance Intensive is a 3 part course designed to teach you the basics of how to take care of and fix your bike. It is designed to come after the “basic maintenance” course offered monthly, but it is not required to understand or enjoy this course. Classes are structured around an informal lecture with hands on practice. Feel free to bring your own bike to learn with. Classes are first 3 Tuesdays of each month, with an Open House Workshop on the 4th Tuesday.

This is a workshop series for cis women, trans women, and gender non-comforming and non-binary folks only.

The series will be capped at 12-15 people, and you must commit to all three sessions. If you can’t commit to all three, please consider attending our regular Women’s and GNC Open Workshop on the last Wednesday of every month, or one of the all-gender workshops regularly held at the shop.

Class 01: “Brakes”  This class covers brakes and their adjustments. Learn how brakes work, what goes wrong, and how to fix them. We’ll learn how to fix brakes squeaking, getting stuck, or seeming too loose.

Class 02: “Gears and Derailleurs” This class covers everything you need to know about how gears work and how to fix common problems. We’ll learn about the basics of shifting systems, how derailleurs, gears, and chains work, and how to get rid of that weird clicking sound that happens when you shift.

Class 03: "Bearing Adjustments and Wheel Truing"  Slightly more advanced, this class is a great finale for our Basic Maintenance Series of classes. This class covers bearing adjustments (hubs, bottom brackets and headsets), as well as wheel truing.

About the Instructor

Iowa born and raised, Catherine got her start as a mechanic by attending free 718 classes and simply refusing to leave. She believes one of life’s greatest pleasures (besides maybe a killer Eddie Van Halen solo) comes from lapping pompous roadies at the park in full-on dress and heels.

She advocates for a rise in queer/femme/trans/gnc cyclist visibility in both the industry and on the roads (and hopes you do as well).
