Class Descriptions

The goal of these courses is to provide the skill set and knowledge requisite to perform a comprehensive bicycle tune up and fully understand the concepts and tools employed therein. We will draw principally from the Park Tool blue book (BBB-2), but will present knowledge, experience and tricks obtained from many years working in a shop environment as well. The goal of the course is to cover all material requisite to perform our “Major Tune Up" offered at the shop, and more. Or, if you prefer, you can sign up for just one or two specific course or individual sessions that can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Note: OutSpokin is a small community shop that serves the average rider. As a result, the bulk of our service works is done on low to mid end mountain, hydrid and road bikes, ranging from the 80's to today. These classes are geared (pun intended) towards commuters and regular riders of these types of bikes. If you are riding a $7000 Trek Domane with Di2 - this class is probably not for you.
