Bike Repair Classes
Do you feel like our open shops are overwhelming? Crowded? Intimidating? Looking for a calmer learning environment with a planned curriculum taught by our wonderful volunteer coordinators with attention to spare? We think we have a solution! YBP periodically offers a 4 part bike repair class. The class covers almost everything: repair basics; overhaul and repair of brakes, hubs, bottom brackets, and derailleurs; truing wheels; and road safety. The class will be capped at 10 participants, which should feel like a private session compared to our 40-50 person open shops. The cost of the 4 part class is $40, which will go to support the work of Yellow Bike. Participants with perfect attendance will be rewarded with an Earn-a-Bike (your choice of used bikes and parts from our shop to build the bike of your dreams). By the end of the course fixing up your Earn-a-Bike will be easy and fun! Currently all classes are full but if you’re interested in taking the class, sign up for our newsletter to stay posted on the next offering.
