FCU Tire Change Clinic – 6pm on the 2nd Tuesday of every month

Flat TireEvery cyclist, at some point in their riding career, will get a flat tire.  Knowing what to do when you get a flat means the difference between a 5 minute tire change and a potentially long and painful walk home.   Join us on the 2nd Tuesday of every month and learn this valuable skill. Everyone who attends is encouraged to bring their own bike.

We will cover:

  • Wheel removal & brake release
  • Proper tools to carry
  • Identifying how your tire went flat
  • Tire & tube removal
  • Tire & tube installation
  • Proper inflation
  • Wheel installation

After you attend this clinic you will know what you need and what to do to fix your flat tire.

 

FCU Bike Care Clinic – 6pm on the 4th Tuesday of every month

Dirty BikeYour bicycle wants to be loved.  Proper cleaning and basic drivetrain maintenance are the best thing you can do for your bike.  The drivetrain is the heart and soul of your bicycle. A healthy drivetrain will work better and last longer. The drivetrain is composed of the chain, cassette or freewheel, crankset, and derailleurs. It is important for any bike owner to know how to properly clean and lubricate this system and know what to look for when inspecting it. Come to the Bike Care Clinic on the 4th Tuesday of every month and learn this valuable information.

  • Identifying parts of the drivetrain and functions of those parts
  • Tools, lubricants and degreasers
  • How to inspect the drivetrain for wear
  • Removal of the chain & cassette
  • What to lubricate and what not to

You will probably get more information than you need but you will walk away knowing the right way to care for your bike and what products are needed to maintain it.
