This Saturday its disc brakes, and more disc brakes.  Today we will discuss both mechanically actuated disk brakes and hydraulic disc brakes.  We will identify, adjust, discuss brake caliper adapters, address different size rotors, and determine what types of fluid are used by different brake manufacturers.  Class will go from 9:00a.m.-10:00a.m..  The double doors on the North East side of the building, directly out of the parking lot as the front door will be locked.

We now have one medium Surly Ice Cream Truck,  a large Salsa Beargrease, and a large Framed Wolftrax for rent.  Charge is $45 per day and if you end up getting a fat bike we will take the first rental fee off the price of the bike.  Call ahead they go out quick for the weekend.

This Saturday the 21st is Winter Trail Day over at North Fork.  We will be there from 9:00a.m.-1:00p.m. with fat bike demos. Its always a good time so if you get a chance come over and play in the snow with skis, snowshoes and fat bikes.  See you all out there.
