Race Pace Bicycles Park Tool School - Baltimore Store
Park Tool School is a 7 week course of basic bicycle maintenance. Classes begin with basics of cleaning and lubing your bicycle. Classes provide instruction on proper tire/tube installation, installation and adjustment of derailleurs, brakes, wheel bearings and wheel truing. Classes are 6pm-8pm on Mondays, beginning January 2, 2017 in our Baltimore store.
All students will receive a course book and lab materials are provided.
From the ground up, this course has saved me countless times on the road. From damming a punctured tire with a candy bar wrapper to fixing a friend's seized hub on a weekend tour to knowing the ins and outs of simply fixing a flat, wrapping bar tape, adjusting brake pads, truing a misaligned wheel, and adding grease to the proper places - this course is as good as it gets.
The tales are fun, too, for the budding commuter and experienced racer alike - from stuffing tires with leaves in order to get back home to using a stem cap bolt to replace a broken seatpost collar bolt on a distance race - this class covers even the tallest tales and more.
If you are committed to calling yourself a cyclist in the present or future, you are missing out if you haven't taken this course. Five stars.
Additionally, if you plan on becoming a home mechanic the class pays for itself in the long run.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
