Bring just one wheel for this class, you do NOT have to bring your entire bike (unless you are riding your bike to the shop.. or you simply need to). How do I remove the front wheel you ask?? WATCH THIS VIDEO (it is really well done): https://youtu.be/UxgneYfegNc

* Your front wheel is easiest to remove and bring to class but note that I will go through rear wheel replacement on the demo bike during class.
* If you have "Tire Levers" please bring them, if you don't I will supply them.
* If you have a "Mobile Pump" please bring it, we can see how well it works.
* If you have a CO2 system please bring as I can show you how to use it if you don't know already.
* I will show you various accessories that I recommend during the class so please wait until the end of the class to buy anything (remember 15% off).
* Please wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty... you are working on a dirty bike tire :)
