Got the Bike, Now to Maintain It

Bike Clinic

Jerry teaches a cyclist how to true his wheels.

Whether you’ve just? received (or given) a bike or have resolved to ride the one you already have more frequently, proper maintenance will help make cycling more enjoyable.

Here are two area classes that will help you learn to do just that:

Mercer County Community College’s continuing education program offers a three-session class starting Jan. 18 at Bernie’s Bicycle Shop in Hamilton. Cost is $59, plus a repair manual (approximately $20). You’ll learn how to clean, lubricate and adjust/repair major components. Look here, then turn to page 54.

If you just want a 45-minute class on how to fix a flat tire and lubricate it, Knapps has a class every month for $10.
