Next Bicycle Mechanics Class Schedule!
Cory and I are excited to announce our next group of classes! Below (and attached) are the list of classes being offered. Generally, these will be the last set of classes offered during the summer.
Please call me at (949) 916-0960 to sign up,we are limiting all the classes to only 5 students per class so everyone has a work station and a bike stand. All classes will be booked on a first come, first served basis, so please sign up ASAP, classes are filling up quickly!
PLEASE NOTE: All class dates are tentative, must have 3 students pre-registered to greenlight the class. In the rare event that under 3 students fail to register for the class, we will keep all registered students informed of schedule change, and all students will be moved to the next scheduled class/ class series.
We encourage all students to bring the bike they own that either:
And please bring a sweatshirt and dress warm, especially in the winter. It can get cold in our warehouse!
****Please let us know if you are planning on bringing in a single speed bike. For the Complete Bicycle Mechanic Series we recommend a geared bike.
Please call to register, and feel free to call me with any questions at (949) 916-0960 .

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.

Chris Hukill’s Medical Fund
Chris is a good friend of OC Bike Garage who had a terrible accident and fell 200 feet off a cliff in Laguna please check out his go fund me page to donate for his recovery. Thanks
On Friday April 22, 2016 at 4pm Chris Hukill fell off his mountain bike about 200 feet down the Telonics mountain in Laguna Canyon. He survived the fall, but he is in critical care and suffered a spinal cord injury. Chris will need aggresive physical therapy in order to regain movement in his arms and legs and will be out of work for a long time.
We are looking for support to cover medical costs, physical therapy, and costs to keep his business (Hukill Paint and Graphics) running while he is recovering.
Anything you can donate will help, but please do not feel obligated to donate money. The Hukill family is just looking for support in the form of visits to Chris, prayers, any help with his business, and any other type of support you can offer.
Chris is a very athletic person who loves to ride his mountain bike, hike, and be outdoors. We would love to get him the best care possible so he can do these activities that he loves so much again!
OCBG Is Now An Official Cleary Bikes Dealer!
We were turned onto these bikes by several parents who were extremely happy with how these bikes were built and how well they rode for their children.
Cleary bikes are one of the very FEW bicycles for 2-8 year olds that have hand brakes and are built like real bicycles, so children have the opportunity to learn on a bike that will transition into what they will be riding their entire life.
We decided to try this bike brand out for ourselves with our own 3 year old child, Coral. We had her using a Strider balance bike since she was about 1 1/2 and on her 3rd birthday we had her try the Cleary, and I have to say the results were amazing!
Check out our home video (this is literally only her sixth ride on the bike):
The New Yeti SB6c is in stock and ready for you!!

OCBG’s Important Tip: Your Bicycle’s Serial Numbers!
Summer is coming, and unfortunately so does the RISE of the bicycle theft rate, especially on beach cruisers and backyard and sideyard stored bikes.
With many people spending as much on bikes as they would on used cars or new motorcycles, it is ultra important to write down ALL of your bicycle’s serial numbers.
Your Bicycle’s Serial Numbers are as important as your car’s VIN numbers! Should your bike get stolen, the bast ammo you have for the police to get it back is to have pictures ALONG WITH the serial number of your bike.
Where is your bicycles serial number you may ask? It is usually located on the frame under the bottom bracket (your bottom bracket is the lowest point of the frame usually).
I recommend storing the number and pictures in the same location as your DMV titles and registration paperwork and/ or with internet passcodes.
