If bike repair were rocket science, our maintenance clinics would be classified. Luckily it's much easier than you may think, and with a little instruction anyone can learn the basics. Mike's Bikes is here to teach you how to fix, maintain, and improve your bike - every Wednesday night, for free!
All you need to bring is your bike and your questions. Our expert mechanics will provide you with hands-on instruction on just about anything you want to know (short of the meaning of life, or how to file taxes on your fair-trade llama import/export business). Clinic times vary by store:
Wednesdays at 5:30pm:
Walnut Creek, San Jose
Wednesdays at 6pm:
Berkeley, Palo Alto, Pleasanton, San Francisco, San Rafael, Sausalito, Sacramento, Petaluma
Wednesdays at 7pm:
Every Wednesday night, we'll provide participant-determined, hands-on instruction on common maintenance topics such as:
Fix a flat
Tune your shifters, derailleurs, and brakes
Fix a broken chain
Swap out worn components
And more (participant-determined)...
Learning how to fix your own bike will not only save you money, but will also empower you to tune and troubleshoot your bike out on the road or trail. Change a flat for that office crush, or be a hero when you fix your buddy's ride. Fame and the admiration of others will be yours.
It's one more way Mike's Bikes makes it easy for you to fall in love with cycling.
