Having a well-maintained bicycle can lead to hours of cycling enjoyment. Unfortunately the enjoyment of cycling can disappear immediately with a few strange sounds and a loss of momentum. A properly maintained bicycle looks, sounds, and feels like an extension of your body. At M & M Cyclery we offer our Park Tool School classes to help the novice or experienced cyclist understand the basics of bicycle maintenance.
The Park Tool School is a bicycle maintenance class taught by the experts at M & M Cyclery based on the curriculum of the Park Tool School manual. The manual is one-hundred and thirty-six pages of bicycle information that covers everything to know about your bicycle and has excellent diagramming most often seen in the automotive field. The manual provides the overview for the class but our Service Manager will teach you, with your own bicycle, the "how to" that can’t be learned from a book.
The Class covers all the repairs included with our Basic Tune Up. The classes are held on Saturdays from 10AM to 4PM
Our classes will fill up quickly. Please choose the appropriate date and location and your spot will be reserved upon payment. If spots are still available, it will be listed as "In Stock" for that particular class.
Classes include a copy of Park Tool's Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair.

I recently took a bike repair class at M & M. I've very pleased at how much I learned. The time flew by! Although many elements of a bike tune-up require specialized tools, I am in AWE of the skills shown by the mechanics who directed my class, Brian and Pete. There were several "easy" things I learned from the class: how to quickly remove and replace bike tires, how to adjust the derailleur (this part was AMAZING), how to adjust the brakes, and the proper places to lubricate the bike. I learned how to "true" my wheels, also. Afterwards, when I took a short ride, I couldn't believe how smooth my bike felt. Don't hesitate to take this class. It was really worthwhile.
