New Class Schedule Set for Early 2018
January 17th, 2018

We are excited to announce our next group of classes. Pasted below are the classes  being offered, one intro class and the Bicycle Mechanics (4) Class Series. Please feel free to call me with any questions. Let us know which class you are interested in, they are filling up quickly due to us trying to limit each class to only 6 students (not including possible make up students).

Workshop Classes

The OC Bicycle Service & Garage’s workshop classes guarantee hands on, detailed classes. Each student will work using all the equipment and tools needed. Being a Park Tool Certified School, each student gets a certificate of completion with each class. Cory Clayton, chief instructor of the courses, will answer any and all of your questions and provide assistance throughout the course.

Each student is provided a work station and stand. Best part about the class, you will learn using work stations you can come back to and use to work on your bike; familiarity is half the battle.

Requirements: BRING YOUR BIKE and a willingness to learn! You will get dirty, so please dress accordingly. No makeup classes are offered due to the intensity of the course, please make sure the class times fit your schedule. PLEASE NOTE:  DRESS WARM! Especially if you are taking one of the night courses.

 

If the course does not come with a Park Tool Repair Book, we strongly encourage all students to have one on hand. Having one of these is the best follow up reference guide. The book is also offered at a discounted price for students.

Things to consider: Tools are expensive, we like students to be aware of that fact so that you don’t get too shocked; However we have great deals on tools for students! This is also why we created three fully stocked work bench station rentals as a cost effective option.

Please call for pricing :)
