Next week, the Saturday demo will cover troubleshooting and fixing creaks, ticks, and groans in the crank area. Aaron will pull, clean, and grease a bottom bracket and go over the various other parts which can cause noises in that area of the bike. If you're interested, we'll be starting at 10:00AM on Saturday the 3rd!
Based on requests, we are planning a regular series of mechanical demonstrations with Q & A every Saturday morning. These demos will be less formal than the classes we run through Parks & Rec, and no registration is required. The demos will be free.
In each demo, Aaron or Gabriel will show how to fix or replace some part of the bike, and then take questions. We expect they will last around an hour each, but some topics may take a little bit longer!
The topics we plan to start with are:
Thanks for your feedback, and we'll look forward to seeing you next week!
Update 10/26: So, it sounds like our first demo will cover adjusting mechanical disc brakes. Hopefully we'll see some of you tomorrow morning!
