Bicycle Maintenance Workshop with Eric Petersen
In this workshop you will learn basic on the road bike maintenance. You won't be a master mechanic by the end of this workshop, but a bike will no longer be a terrifying or confusing piece of machinery. We will explore the basic mechanisms that make most bicycles work: tires, cables, and bearings. Skills taught include using a multi-tool and how to repair a flat tire. Materials fee covers gloves, chain lubricant and stuff to take home (inner-tube and tire levers).

Eric Petersen has been working in the bicycle industry for 6 years as a mechanic, sales person, and now as the manager of Silk Road Cycles in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Along with commuting daily, racing occasionally, and touring, his interest in cycling borders on the obsessive. To him, cycling can mean independence.

This workshop is part of Flux Factory's "Domestic Revolution," an educational series focused on different areas of domestic living: food, sewing/mending, bike maintenance & repair. This series considers how everything we do can be a full expression of our most highly-capable selves, making the world exactly as we would like to see it and making ourselves the super-people to enable it.
