The course is designed to give students the basic knowledge that they need to move onto more complex repairs and systems. Since each class follows in a logical succession, it is recommended that you attend every class. Bring yourself, a willingness to learn, and a pen and paper if you want to take notes. You may also bring in your own bicycle to work on (it’s a good chance to tune it up), but your bicycle must be similar to the course material (simply ask the instructor).
