Time of Event: February 20 – 0900-1000
Starting Point: Virtual, via Zoom
Ride Leader: Frank Potter
Skill level: Social/Educational
How is your bike looking? Air long since left for a lower-pressure job? Chain feeling a bit rusty? Drive-train looks more like a Drive-Caboose? If this describes your bike or if you are a ‘fix-a-phobic’ this 60 minute Zoom session is for you!
Crankys will cover the basic of bicycle repair. During this session you will learn such basics as:
– How to quickly check your bike and realize that you REALLY should not go riding today.
– Why even more oil is a bad thing for a chain and how much is a good compromise.
– What are all those screws and gadgets on your circlely thing by the back wheel and when to turn them (and why you should leave well enough alone)
If at this point you are a Ride Repair Recluse, you can still come out and contribute. We will pair the ‘terrified of all things mechanical’ with those who know the difference between a Robinson and a Philips screwdriver.
Please note that registration is capped at 95 individuals. If you are new to Zoom, add a note when you register in Karelo whether or not you want a pre-Zoom primer.
