Wenches with Wrenches - New Classes

Some of our previous Wenches with Wrenches attendees (and others!) have been asking us about these. Well, we're finally going to make them happen! Previous WwW attendance not required. (Sorry guys, these classes are for women only!)

Saturday, November 3, 2007. 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
Ball Bearings: For those who have already taken the Wenches with Wrenches classes and want a little more, or for those with a little bike repair experience already under their belt, here is a chance to learn about the bearings systems in your bike: everything that pivots has one of these! Everyone will have an opportunity to repack ONE bearings system on their bike during the class (i.e. one hub, a bottom bracket, or a headset). Cost: $15

Sunday, November 11, 2007. 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
Wheel Truing: Why does your wheel wobble? Why do your brakes rub, but only occasionally? What do you do when a spoke breaks? We will learn the basics of wheel truing: when (and when not) to adjust the tension on your spokes; how to bring a wheel back to true, and when it's not worth it; what to do with an emergency wheel true situation. Bring wheels, bring questions, and badly out-of-true wheels will be provided for practice!
Cost: $15

Registration required in advance, at Urbane Cyclist, 180 John St. (just north of Queen St. and CityTV). CASH ONLY at registration! Register for both classes at the same time and pay only $25 for both!

The pipe wrench is perhaps one of the most recognizable tools. You can find it in most toolboxes.
