Bike Maintenence Class this Saturday at CFSBK
Springtime weather is around the corner and CFSBK wants to help you prepare for bike riding season! Bicycle Habitat will be bringing their basic bike maintenance class from their 5th Avenue shop to 597 DeGraw specially for CFSBK, 2:30p-4p on Saturday, April 5. Course will include:
- Flat repair tips, including time saving techniques and ways to ensure a successful repair.
- Basic brake and gear adjustment, including familiarity with barrel adjusters.
- Maintenance tips like drivetrain lubrication and proper tire inflation.
- Checking for signs of wear and an overview of bike safety checks.
- Time for open Q&A.
You'll be able to roll in your own bike to use as an example during the class! The class will be more instructional in nature, but bring any bike tools you already have in case there is time for tinkering! $10 per person, class is capped at 25. Sign up and pay in advance at the Front Desk by April 3.
Athlete wanted for VICE
Do you like working out and blasting loud, aggressive tunes? If so, want to help a local music writer from VICE with a story about whether Oi!—a brutish, working-class offshoot of punk rock popularized in Britain in the late '70s—makes you lift more, run faster, jump higher, etc., etc. All you need to do is listen to an Oi! soundtrack on a few workouts and report back on how the music made you feel. If you wouldn't mind submitting a photo and answering a few follow-up questions, that'd be great. If you're game for helping out, email Ken.partridge(AT)gmail.com.
