Be Your Own Bike Mechanic

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. This popular series of classes is taught by professional mechanics and educators who love sharing their knowledge of bicycles with students.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Gear Hub has made the tough decision to cancel all Be Your Own Bike Mechanic group classes and private instruction for the foreseeable future as we are using the Bike School space actively to support our programs like Bikes for All Mainers. You can sign up to be notified of classes starting up again by filling out this Form.

In the meantime, you can learn general bike maintenance skills through our Volunteer Opportunities. Thanks!
