Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Gear Hub has made the tough decision to postpone all Be Your Own Bike Mechanic classes and private instruction for the foreseeable future. We’re proud to say that we’re still able to provide our core services during what’s been a challenging time, however that is at the sacfice of classes like these.
It’s our hope to be able to re-launch with a revised 2020 schedule in the near future, however right now all we can do is practice patience while this situation changes. Thanks for your interest!
The Be Your Own Bike Mechanic course is offered in 6-week sessions, 2-day sessions, and customizable private sessions. Whichever class you choose, you’ll learn about all aspects of your bike, from the quick releases to the bottom bracket. Throughout the series, students will be able to deconstruct their bike, identify mechanical problems, and put it all back together again.
