Really nice space and instructors and a well presented, quick overview of basic bike care.
Alex and Leslie are great. Very knowledgeable and provided a laid back environment so no one felt intimidated. I feel very comfortable changing my own tire now. I even learned a few other easy maintenance tips that I didn't know before. I would highly recommend this class.
Money well spent! Great hands-on experience. I appreciate the handout of info too. These folks know their stuff...I'll definitely be back for help with my bike.
I thought this was a great glass for beginners like myself. I left confident that I could fix a flat and with the skills to make minor tweaks to the bike to help it perform better. I also appreciated that Alex and Lesley were willing to answer lots of questions and even extended the offer to bring our own individual bikes in another time to have them help us learn how to make adjustments. For someone who already knows very basic bike maintenance this might not be an ideal class, but if you're a newbie or looking for a refresher, it's a great choice.
After becoming infatuated with bicycles from an early age, Alex knew that being a part of the bicycle community was all he wanted to do with his life. He has worked in the bicycle industry as a mechanic for 12 years. Having always wanted to be a small business owner, five years ago, he and his wife Lesley opened Roscoe Village Bikes. He has taught many maintenance clinics in the past and has always enjoyed helping empower people to do repairs that they may not need a bike shop for.
