Bike Fun Bike Lab – February 2020
February 22 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The Bike Fun Bike Lab is being held once a month in the winter at Trinity Community Commons. Bring your bike and learn more about how to be a thoughtful caregiver for your wonderful freedom machine. Don’t have a bike? I’ll have one you can work on. Drop-in, casual learning environment. Donations accepted.
For this edition of Bike Fun Bike Lab, we will focus on fixing a flat tire from 9AM-10:30AM – so the drop in at the first part will look at patching tubes, changing tubes, examining tires, checking rim tape, and all the other things that you need to know when you’re pumping back up to roll!
After 10:30AM, we’ll be open for any maintenance-related question you’d like.
At these drop-in sessions, we’ll cover common maintenance issues that you may encounter while riding your bike. We’ll also discuss how to care for your bike to keep it running smoothly. Feel free to bring your own bicycle. I’ll have a bike stand and tools.
Common maintenance issues include:
- Cleaning your drivetrain
- Adjusting tension in cables (brakes and shifting)
- Fixing a flat tire
- Patching an inner tube
- General cleaning
- Checking bolts for tightness
- Checking cassette/freewheel and crankset sprockets for wear
Please note – Bike Fun does not provide actual repair services on bicycles but will be able to advise and assist riders in getting their bikes in shape.
