      EVENT DETAILS
      Basic Bike Maintenance Workshop

      Bikes, as with any vehicle, should be serviced regularly.  Anyone who rides a bike should know how to handle a few basic maintenance tasks such as how to replace worn brake pads and change a flat tire.  Not only will simple things like these make your bike safer, they also make riding your bike more enjoyable, and could save you an expensive bill from a shop.  The topics we'll cover don't require being a master mechanic and most can be done with simple tools you likely already have (or can acquire for a couple bucks from the hardware store).

      Join one of our experienced mechanics for this introductory bike maintenance workshop and start getting your bike rolling smoothly for Spring rides!

      Topics include:  
      Wheels: Fixing flats & basic truing
      Brakes: inspecting, adjusting, & replacing rim-type brakes
      Shifters: basic adjustments
      Other general tune-up topics as needed/ time allows

      Requirements
      A desire to know more about the inner-workings of bicycles.  No mechanical experience, tools, or bike needed (but feel free to bring tools or a bike to work on).  The GVSU Bike Shop can provide everything.

      Cost
      $5
