What's Included

This is approximately a 3-hour workshop. The emphasis is on inspection and knowing when there is a problem rather than how to actually fix it, for example, inspecting for a bearing play rather than replacing the bearings. It is useful to new cyclists who want to know when the bike needs service but are either unsure of their ability to fix it or simply want someone else to do the work. The workshop is Lecture/Demo/Lab format. You will get the opportunity to work on bikes at the shop and put some of the skills into practice. Topics that will be covered during the workshop Wheel removal Removal of tire and tube from rim Inner tube inspection Inner tube repair Installation of tire and tube on wheel Wheel installation Chain wear and damage Chain cleaning Chain lubrication Sprocket inspection and cleaning Index adjustment (rear) Wheel wear, damage & repair Pads-to-rim and pad-to-rotor inspection Adjusting brake cables Frame damage

About This Organizer

FitZip.org is a San Antonio based non-profit organization committed to helping youth understand the value of living a healthy lifestyle. We believe that physical fitness is directly tied to mental and emotional well-being. Our goal is to teach youth healthy habits for life.

We also believe that youth in lower income and single-family households are at great risk. Their environment and surroundings offer little support in regards to physical activity and proper eating habits. FitZip.org offers this support to the kids and their parents through our its programs FitZipCamps, FitZip Nutrition, Earn-A-Bike Co-op, EAB Bike Camps.

FitZipCamps offers Bike, Triathlon and, Duathlon day camps during the summer. The 5-day Monday to Friday program is designed to introduce kids ages 7 to 14 to the cycling and the sport of triathlon. Certified coaches and experienced triathletes provide instruction on swimming, cycling and running techniques, bicycle safety and maintenance, transition and nutrition.
