Gear and Brake Adjustment Hands-on Workshop

This winter the Summit Cycling Center is hosting a series of bi-weekly bicycle repair and maintenance clinics at the Bike Kitchen at Lock 3. These sessions are all hands-on. You are encouraged to bring your bike. Due to limited space in the workshop and at the workbenches, there is a limit to the number of students. The series will be repeated during the winter.

You should only RSVP if you are certain you can attend. If you need to cancel, please change your RSVP as early as possible. We are maintaining a waiting list for these clinics. Please be considerate to your fellow Spin-offs in RSVPing for a clinic you are certain you can attend.

There is no charge for this meet-up. However, we are suggesting a $5 donation to Summit Cycling Center for each session. They have graciously provided their time and workshop space free-of-charge for this series. Let's support them in their efforts to grow a cycling community in the Akron Area.

Here is the line-up for this winter's clinics.

01/08 - Basic road repair (flat repair and other emergencies)

01/22 - Gear and brake adjustment

02/05 - Home bicycle maintenance

02/19 - Basic road repair (flat repair and other emergencies)

03/05 - Gear and brake adjustment

03/19 - Home bicycle maintenance

    I'm not familiar with Akron and after circling for 20 minutes in the dark seeing nothing but nice Pubs I gave up.

      Jim, Sorry to hear. The Bike Kitchen is in the basement of the old O'niels Department Store. I will add detailed directions prior to the next clinic. The elevator from the State Street garage parking deck (just west of S. Main Street) opens to the basement and Bike Kitchen.

    I always taken away some good pointers from Angelo. This is a good organization with a good mission. I look forward to future clinics.

    I learned a lot, maybe can't do it myself but would go to the Bike Kitchen for help and assistance.

    I'm soo sorry I'm missing out. I had car trouble and just got home. I was planning on being there. I feel so bad. I've been looking forward to this.

    I have sooo looked forward to this class and I'm sorry to bow out. A good friend of mine lost his brother and I would be remiss to not attend the calling hours and gathering thereafter. I hope for a repeat class at a later date. I've never canceled before I hope the message gets through.
