Brakes; the often overlooked member of the bicycle component family...until you really need them. Nothing improves your bike's performance or builds rider confidence like good solid brakes. In this class, you'll learn how to detect and replace worn components, adjust your brakes so they perform to their optimal potential, and how to maintain your braking system to ensure longevity. We'll also talk about various kinds of brakes including rim and disc brakes.
Students are encouraged to bring their bikes to class but if you'd prefer to practice on a shop bike, we'll be more than happy to provide one at no additional cost.
