All classes and instruction are based on the philosophy that the best way to learn is to physically do it yourself, with your own hands on your own bike. Students work on their own bicycles, which gives more active time for them to absorb the information and really feel how things work. The lessons go beyond the basics into the tricks and tips that mechanics use every day.
Learn where to put your hands, how to push, pull or manhandle your bike (as you’ll find it sometimes needs a little extra coaxing) to get the job done. At Gracie's Wrench, mistakes are welcome as they provide an opportunity to see what can go wrong and how to fix it, as well as extra experience in a supportive environment.
Tune your own bicycle! This course includes four 3-hour, hands-on classes. Each Tune-up class has a two student maximum. What makes our classes exceptional is our commitment to individualized learning. We want you to receive the highest quality, personalized learning experience possible.
The perfect choice to start getting to know your bike and learn to make basic adjustments and fixes a snap. Each Basic Maintenance Class has a four student maximum. What makes our classes exceptional is our commitment to individualized learning. We want you to receive the highest quality, personalized learning experience possible.
This is the same great class as our regular Beginner Maintenance Class, but Women and Trans sessions are for all women and trans identified people, and is closed to cisgender males, to provide a safer space for women and gender minorities.
This service is for those who may only have a specific project or concern, want to start small or who prefer one-on-one lessons with a personalized curriculum. From basic flat changes to brand-specific adjustments, this is time for you to work with a professional teacher and mechanic, so dream big!
Re-enforce your learning! We've heard from our course graduates that they want a bit more guided practice. For those students who've already taken the Basic Tune-up or Beginner Maintenance Course but would like to hone and advance their mechanical skills, we're now offering open stand time in the Gracie's Wrench Studio with Tori there for guidance.
