Skyline Cycle's Blog
Last Saturday we went over basic maintenance of a bicycle in the bike class and despite a stinking snow storm we still had people here which was great.
This coming Saturday December 14th in bike class will be assessing, describing, removing and reinstalling cables and housing to both the derailleur and brake systems. We will also cover chain wear, removal, installation, and we will go over the use of master links. Class will begin at 9:00a.m. and will end around 10:00a.m.. Come through the double doors an the North East side of the building as the front door will remain locked so we can concentrate.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Our first shipment of GoPro Hero3+ cameras have arrived and are ready for sale, we have three on hand right now.
I just finished updating the calendar through the end of February 2014. All the holidays that we are going to be closed are listed and I put a complete schedule of all the free bike classes that are taught Saturday mornings starting in December and ending in February up with descriptions of each. I am looking forward to teaching this season I hope getting the schedule up early will allow all of you that are interested to plan which classes you want to attend. Thanks as always.
Bicycle Brake Class
Saturday, January 14, 2012, 09:00 - 10:00
This session will concentrate on how the bikes brake system operates, types of brake systems, where and when different brake systems are used. We will learn to identify different pads for different brake systems, talk about different pad materials. Towards the end of the class we will start to adjust a road bike brake system.
The next Class, the 21st, will adjust V-brakes(linear pull brakes), and will continue on into disc brakes both mechanical and hydraulic. We will start the discussion on bleeding hydraulic brake systems and see how far we get. I will schedule the next class following this the class on the 21st. 9:00a.m.
