The Women* and Nonbinary classes are identical to the co-ed classes except that they are taught by women/transfolks/femme mechanics in an intentional environment meant to give space to people who want to learn bike mechanics and are not cismen. (Cis- meaning that you still identify with the gender you were given at birth). Each class lasts two hours and meets once per week for 6 weeks. The class is divided into lecture and hands-on learning where the student works on their own bicycle. This class meets from 6:30-8:30 pm. All classes are for adults 18 and older.
The hands-on exercises range from:
Class 1 – Fixing a flat
Class 2 – Front hub adjustment
Class 3 – Wheel truing
Class 4 –Brake Adjustment
Class 5 – Sizing and replacing a chain
Class 6 – Rear derailer adjustment
A few things to know about our classes:
- Remember to bring your bike
- Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting grease on.
- Wear closed toe shoes.
- If you need to cancel your enrollment you must do so at least 2 weeks before the class starts for a refund. After that, no refund will be issued.
