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.
This Saturday the 2nd of March we will have the final spin class where we will do a fitness test. We have spin classes at 10:00a.m. and 11:30a.m.. The 10:00a.m. class is full but there are seven spots available for the 11:30a.m. class.
Bicycle class will be a review of the basic maintenance class. During this class we will discuss the process of cleaning, lubricating, and generally maintaining your bicycle. We will also go over the process of removing a wheel from the bike, removing a tire, removing a tube, repair of your tube and then a re-installation of the tube and pressurization.
This Saturday, February 2nd we will be having the bicycle maintenance class as well as both spin classes. Bicycle maintenance will be covering disc brakes. We will discuss different types of brakes, fluids used in different systems, pad replacement, pad material composition, and then we will make adjustments on both hydraulic disk brakes and on mechanically(cable actuated) disk brake systems.
The first spin class will take place at 10:00a.m. and there are still 2 spots available as of this moment, so if you want in call or send an e-mail and we will put you on the list. The second session starting at 11:30a.m. still has 7 spots available, call or e-mail if you would like to be put in this class as well. Remember to show up 10 minutes early to get set up. I'll tell you what though this warm weather has me itching to get out, spring is definitely on the way.
Just a quick note on the class on the 30th 9:00a.m.-10:00a.m. If you are planning on coming will you drop a note on our Facebook or an email that way I have an idea of who is going to be there and how much room I need.
On a different note the ride for tomorrow is on baring any natural disaster. Meet up at 6:00p.m., leave at 6:30p.m. As always look forward to seeing everyone.
