UPDATE: This class is now full and in WAITLIST status. Feel free to email the below address to request to be added to the waitlist.
Hubs are where your bicycle’s wheel rotates around the axle. Properly maintaining them will make your bike more efficient, your wheels more stable, and increase your wheels’ lifespan!
After this class, you will be able to:
Take apart, grease, and reassemble a standard cup-and-cone hub
Diagnose common hub-related issues like wheel wobble or excessive friction
Inspect hubs and determine if they need to be adjusted or serviced
Adjust your hubs to allow your wheels to spin more freely and last longer
Do you want to learn how to true a wheel at some point? Then you’ll need to learn how to fix a hub first!
No experience is necessary. If you have a wheel with a hub that needs some love feel free to bring it, otherwise we have plenty of wheels that the shop to learn on.

Other things to know:
- The purpose of all SBK classes is to *teach* you how to perform bicycle repairs. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for any damage your bicycle may incur during the class nor can we guarantee that you will have a functioning bicycle at the end of the class, especially if your bicycle was not functioning properly prior to the class.
- We have experience working with a variety of bicycles, but not all of them! If you surprise us with some exotic machine we’ve never seen before we’ll be happy to take a look at it and may even want to take some pictures, but we can’t guarantee we’ll know what’s best for it mechanically.
