I’ve learned how to fix bikes by working on my own bikes and making mistakes. Some of these mistakes were costly and this semi-expertise took years.
If you live in the Bay Area and don’t have that kind of time on your hands enroll in Park Tool School at Good Karma Bikes instead. The first class of the 18-hour course starts February 9th. It costs $250 and includes a 20% discount on all purchases made at the GKB retail store during the month, the Park Tool Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair and a Good Karma Bikes T-Shirt. Best of all: you get a lot of good instructor time since the class size is capped at 15.
I’m of the mentality that the more people who know how to fix bikes who are roaming the earth, the more people will ride bikes. If you want to sign up for Park Tool School click the link here or forward/share the following with a friend.
Thanks for reading and thanks for riding.
