Starting on Wednesday April 11th we'll be hosting a free open shop night every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. Bring your own bike and join us for an open forum style maintenance class. We'll have a couple mechanics there to teach basic bike maintenance.

We have a few different options so that anybody, regardless of skill or confidence level, can learn how to do pretty much anything from us.

Each class will take around 1.5-2 hours. The day of the class you receive 15% of all tools and accessories you may need. Also, be sure to bring your own bike to work on and wear clothes that can get dirty with closed toed shoes.
