This course is an introduction to bicycle maintenance.

Topics will include:
- recommended basic tools - flat repair
- brake adjustment
- shifter adjustment
- chain care

Attendees should bring their own bike. I'm hoping to have a roughly hour-long lecture on these topics, then an hour and a half of hands-on work time.

Attendees should also bring the recommended tools. A list will be sent out in early January to registered participants.
