Learn bike mechanics this November


Intro to Mechanics is a 4-session workshop series that runs on Thursdays from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Bike Kitchen.

During these interactive sessions, you’ll learn to become more familiar with different types of bike tools and different parts of bikes. Simple repairs and maintenance will be taught by knowledgeable mechanics in a friendly and supportive environment. Throughout this series of workshops, demonstrations and explanations of basic bike mechanisms will be given to help with understanding of the entire bicycle system.

The workshop schedule for November is:

November 5th – Introduction to the Bicycle, Flats and Tires
November 12th – Bearings: A bearing is the point of contact between a turning part and a non-turning part. Major bearings on a bicycle are the headset, the bottom bracket, and the hubs. There are also bearings in brakes, pedals and freewheels.
November 19th – Brakes and Truing
November 26th – Drivetrain:  This includes the parts of a bicycle which have to do with generating forward motion, including the pedals, cranks, chainwheels, bottom bracket, chain, derailleurs, rear sprocket(s) and rear hub.
