Fixed Gears: Bike Workshop II

Class: Bike Workshop II

For my second bike workshop, Bike Workshop II, I again had to select a bike to bring to class. My cat bike had made the cut for the first workshop. However, I realized that its mechanical tune-ups may have reached a point of diminishing returns. I also think I was a bit embarrassed to bring the cat bike in again, so this time I brought my city bike instead.

Thanks to Todd’s excellent instruction, city bike got the intense spa treatment — wheel truing, limit adjustments, brake tune-up, new carburetor, coolant, etc. — while I worked towards a deeper understanding of bike mechanics. We both were treated to the musical sounds of bike maintenance; look for the remix on BikeTunes.
