    1. Sorry a little late on this but yes we do gift certificates!

  3. peter Says:

    any comprehensive class this spring/early summer?


    1. Not this season! The classes will start up in the Fall.

  4. Jamie Jaeger Says:

    When is your next basic school class

  5. Jeff Hamm Says:

    Any bike classes this season, or out of luck until fall?


    1. Not this season, we’re incredibly busy right now to host classes. Check back with us in Fall.

  6. Jeff Hamm Says:

    Was just in the shop and was told to send a note to Earl. I have a $100 gift cert from my kids (from last Xmas) for classes. Have a hybrid and a road bike and a couple other family bikes that I just want to be able to keep clean and lubed. Learning how to fix a flat wouldn’t be bad either! Not mechanical (just ask my wife and kids), but willing to learn a little to extend the life of my beloved bikes. Thanks.


    1. I believe I remeber writing out that gift certificate! Again, we won’t host any classes until Fall
