Our April Club Mixer will focus on everything bike mechanics and maintenance! Whether you are new to riding, just bought a fancy new bike, or are just scared to fix a flat, come and learn a little something and ask the experts. This evening will be presented in two parts:

Part 1 (6:15pm): Introductory Bike Mechanics, presented by Jerry Ross, NYCC VP of Rides and lifetime member. Jerry has been a member of NYCC since 1992 and VP Rides since 2016. Jerry is known as a good “road mechanic” and knows his way around a bicycle. Jerry is going to walk you through the basic repairs you may encounter: fixing flats on clincher and tubular tires,  repairing broken chains, dealing with a broken spoke, making a bike rideable if a derailleur breaks and other things that happen on a ride.

Part 2 (7:15pm): Advanced Bike Mechanics, presented by Andrew Trablante, Market Development Leader of Trek NYC. Andrew previously worked for 3 years as Service Manager, opening three NYC Trek locations before his current role. Andrew is going to cover more advanced topics, such as tubeless tires, electronic shifters, and derailleur and other component adjustments. Andrew is ready to answer whatever your questions you may have, in a casual Q&A format.

Both our experts will be bringing bikes, stands, and tools to demonstrate their skills.

This meeting is sponsored by Ride for Mental Health, and will start with a brief presentation by founder Mac Dorris about this charity ride. Mac will be bringing water bottles and socks for the first 50 attendees!

Ride for Mental Health is also offering $50 Off Registration for all NYCC members.
