Do you want to take one of the above classes, but can’t fit it into your schedule or prefer one-on-one instruction? Or, do you want to learn something more customized or advanced, like wheel-building? Century Cycles offers CC 1-To-1, where you book a time and topic with one of our bike mechanics. (Example: Last year a customer booked CC 1-To-1 time to have Century Cycles mechanics help him with a winter project to overhaul an old road bike and make it into a single speed.) $75 per hour. By appointment only.
