    A great hands on class that not only taught me how to tune and care for my bike but also gave me a much better understanding of the mechanics of my bike. Highly recommend!

    Brian is super friendly, a real gentleman. He's obviously passioate about bikes and the cycling world and has years of experience. He offered a beer and gave us demos on his own bike..and offered to work on our own bikes, had we been able to bring them. We started with basic knowledge and history and got to do some hands-on bike tire changing and chain/derailer work. His shop is neat, tidy, and professional. He was open to questions and further explanation throughout the class.
