Saturday February 9th, Spin, and Bike Class

This Saturday February 9th we will be having both spin classes and we will be holding the bicycle maintenance class.  The first session of the spin class is full but the second class is still wide open. The first class is at 10:00a.m., the second class will start at 11:30a.m., show up a little early to get your bike set up.  Remember to call ahead and put your name on the list if you are coming to the second class.

In the bike maintenance class we will be going over wheels.  We will discuss the way in which a wheel works, spokes, hubs the whole nine yards and then we will go over the technique of truing wheels.  I will have a couple wheel truing stands set up with wheels so that you will have the opportunity to actually true a wheel if you would like.  As always if you have questions call 801-394-7700 or send and e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
