Beginner Chalk Talk and Spring Tuneup - February 17, 2017, 10:59 AM

I've been so busy the last two years but I've made a commitment to do this again.

https://baltimore.craigslist.org/mcy/5993222038.html

I usually do a spring oil change/basic service session; this year I'm combining with a beginner two-hour "Chalk Talk"; It's a combination Q&A session along with an opportunity to tailor your bikes' controls and ergonomics to you.

THIS IS A BEGINNER SESSION!!!! Experienced riders will likely find this too BASIC....

We cover a lot of the stuff that gets skipped or glossed over in the BRC for simple lack of time.

It's a good way to get your head back in the game, along with getting your bike ready for the season.

THERE IS NO CHARGE. Folks usually kick in a couple bucks for a pizza break.

My furniture shop is in Glen Burnie, MD. I have a lift and some stands, compressor, ect. plus all needed tools. You bring the oil and filter.

Change oil, check pressures, clean, adjust and lube the chain and check brake wear; make sure you and your ride are ready for the season.

I'm shooting for one date in Mid March and another in April.

Definitely a +1.

I've owned my bike for about 1 year now and my cousin just got one. I'm definitely interested! PM when you get a date.

One of the things I never learned how to properly do was adjust the slack in my chain. Is that in this workshop, or considered a step above what you plan to cover?
