    FREE WORKSHOP: Shifting

    Hosted by Old Spokes Home

    We love gears.

    Arguably the most mysterious aspect of a bicycle's mechanics, shifting is often a source of stress for many people who ride bikes.

    We'll introduce you to different shifting systems commonly found on bikes. We'll explain how they work and how to make basic adjustments. Of course, feel free to ride your bike to the class, but we will not be working directly on participants' bikes.

    FREE PIZZA.

    If 10 or more people show up, one lucky attendee will go home with a $50 Old Spokes Home gift card. 

    We appreciate you marking "Interested" or "Attending" via the Facebook event, but you must reserve your spot here to attend.

    This workshop and pizza are made possible with support from our friends at Local Motion.

    Note that this workshop is at Generator Makerspace off Pine St., not at Old Spokes Home or Old Spokes Home Community Workshop.

    FREE WORKSHOP: Brakes

    Hosted by Old Spokes Home

    This is the class to take if you want to get rid of that annoying rubbing sound. Or perhaps you've noticed your brakes weaken over time and you want to adjust them or replace your pads yourself, but you're not quite sure where to start.

    We'll overview various braking systems and their parts while explaining the basic principals that govern them all. Of course, feel free to ride your bike to the class, but we will not be working directly on participants' bikes.

    FREE PIZZA.

    If 10 or more people show up, one lucky attendee will go home with a $50 Old Spokes Home gift card.
