Hi everyone,

I recently settled in NY (from France), and could have pretty soon the occasion to do a Coast to Coast trip in the US.

I don't feel confident enough to go, with my current knowledge of repair.

I am thus looking for bike repair classes in NYC, or spending some volunteer time in a shop or association, in order to help and also upgrade my knowledge.

I found your site very interesting and thought that you guys would probably have some good ideas that could help me.

my email is [email protected].

Thnaks in advance for your answers.

Sinon il suffit d'aller a la boutique la plus proche et de demander.

Otherwise just head to the nearest bikeshop and ask]

Classes and individual instruction... my favorite shop, Bicycle Habitat!

En plus, connaissez-vous la region bordelaise? J'y vais faire un petit tour de neuf jours en octobre, si vous avez un moment pour m'en parler (peut-etre en anglais!)

I second this recommendation. I took the seven-week repair class at Habitat four years ago and it was wonderful. I am not kidding when I say it changed my understanding of the world. Ball bearings, cables, springs . . . it's all in there. Best of all you bring your own bike to class, and work on it, so you learn exactly what you need to know.

Hang, ask, watch at local shops.
