“Wheels connect your bike to the ground. And without wheels, a bike can’t roll. Taking care of your wheels can be some difficult business unless someone takes the time to show you how to keep your wheels true and round. Here’s your opportunity! If you maintain your wheels faithfully, the next time you are on that highway run into the midnight sun, you can be sure your wheels will go round and round and round….”

“This workshop is all about the shifting systems that make your chains go from gear to gear. Come down and learn how to swap out a frayed shifter cable. Find out the proper way to keep your chain clean, lubed, and in alignment. If you learn about this stuff — and put it into practice — then the next time you are trying to make it home, when you’ve got to make it, before too long, ooh, you’ll never need to sing to yourself ‘I can’t take this very much longer, no, I’m stranded, in the sleet and rain.’ That’s right, never.”

“Brakes” Workshop on Monday, 1/27/14.

Presented by Nern Ostendorf of Queen City Bike.nern-brakes

“Brakes make your bike stop. And that’s important. But they need attention from time to time and knowing how to swap out pads and cables — and knowing how to make everything work when you put it all back together — can go a long ways toward making you and your bike best buddies. Just don’t stop believin’ — hold on to the feelin’ of your bike stopping when you apply the brakes.”
