Maintenance class schedule announced

Century Cycles has some of the best mechanics in the bike business and they are going to spend their winter teaching you what they know! They’re experts, but you don’t have to be to take a class. You just need a desire to learn more – a LOT more – about the way your bike works. Because classes are small for hands-on learning, they fill up fast. Sign up as soon as possible and don’t forget to ask a friend to join you – it’s fun to learn together!

Basic Maintenance Class
This hands-on session will teach you flat tire repair, lubrication, and inspecting and adjusting your bicycle for safe operation. Don’t let minor issues keep you from enjoying your ride!
(1) Two-hour class - $25
Session 1- Tuesday- February 3rd
Session 2- Tuesday- March 3rd

Tune-up Class
Bring your bike for a hands-on tune-up! You will clean and lube the drivetrain; adjust brakes, derailleurs, hubs, headset and bottom bracket; true wheels; and evaluate replacement parts and upgrades. Plan to get dirty and leave with a clean, well-tuned bicycle!
(2) Two-hour classes - $75
Session 1- Tuesdays- January 6th and 13th
Session 2- Thursdays- January 22nd and January 29th

Overhaul Class
In addition to the skills covered in the Tune-up class you will remove, clean, lube and adjust all serviceable bearings on your bicycle. Brake and shifter cables will be removed and replaced (cables needed are included with the class). In-depth derailleur adjustment and advanced wheel truing will be covered thoroughly. Bring your bike back to life!
(3) Two-hour classes - $100
Session 1- Wednesdays- January 14th, 21st and 28th
Session 2- Mondays- February 2nd, 9th, and 16th

The fine print:

All classes are from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Classes are offered at all three stores simultaneously. Call or visit your local Century Cycles to reserve your class space (phone numbers below; payment is due at the time of reservation). Participants receive a 15% discount on regularly-priced parts, tools, lubes, repair stands and accessories purchased between the start and finish dates of your class. The classes are geared towards multi-speed bikes manufactured after 1985 and are not suitable for BMX, recumbents, tandems, or coaster brake bikes. Sorry, but any missed classes cannot be made up or refunded.

  1. I for one am planning on taking the tune-up class. It will make that first ride of the season much more enjoyable!
