FIRST TWO DAY INTENSIVE BICYCLE MECHANIC WORKSHOP!
November 10th, 2017
DSCN0168By popular demand for a weekend class session, we have decided to offer a TWO DAY INTENSIVE BICYCLE MECHANIC WORKSHOP!
Historically, in the past,  we hold them on Tuesday nights for 3 hours per class, and have an separate intro and advanced classes. We will be going back to that format in January/ February.
Please call (949) 916-9060 to reserve your spot today!

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.

The course includes the 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.

What You Will Learn

Have no knowledge of your bike? Want to learn what to do if something goes wrong while on your ride? This course will teach students, hands-on, how to check their bike before their ride, tire and tube repair, basic brake and derailleur adjustments, as well as emergency chain repair.  It will also suggest tools and equipment needed so you can be all geared up to prevent you from being stuck on the road/ trail.

Students will get an overview of the entire bike, and get a hands-on close up view and an understanding of your bike and its components. Students will complete a full bike tune up, adjusting components. This course will truly make you a self-sufficient cyclist, enabling you to perform most of the common procedures carried out on a day to day basis by bike shop mechanics.
