Bike Class, Repeat Of Basic Maintenance! Tune Up Special! Now Accepting Resume!s!

This will be a repeat of the first basic maintenance class taught in December for all those that may have missed it. Today we will cover a description of all the components and how a bicycle works.  We will then discuss how to clean, lube and inspect your bicycle to  keep it running well.  Class will begin at 9:00a.m. and will run for approximately one hour ending at 10:00a.m., plan on arriving a little early and come through the double doors and the North East side of the building.

Just a reminder that the tune up special will be ending at the end of the month and we will be returning to our normal price of $55.00.

We are also beginning the process of looking for help for the upcoming season.  We will be taking resumes from anyone interested.  There is no amount of experience needed to apply and on your resume I just want to know who you are, work experience, why you are interested in working at Skyline Cycle and why you think you are one of the individuals that should be picked.  Positions will be a combination of sales and mechanics so if you don't like getting a little dirty and greasy this may not be for you. Spring is just around the corner and we can't weight, see you all soon.
