!!Why take these classes?
- Understanding what can go wrong with your bike and what the symptoms are, which are safety issues and which are economic issues, and giving enough hands-on practice to help you remember basic tasks is the focus of this class series. To really learn how to fix a bike though, you have to do it a few times, so we encourage students to volunteer at our Wednesday evening [http://www.ohiocitycycles.org/wiki/tiki-index.php?page=Fixathon|Fixathons], when you'll work together with a more skilled mechanic on bikes for our programs or for sale.

/>Taking the course of Basic Shop classes is also what constitutes co-op membership, so you must take them before extensively using the shop facilities for personal projects. (If you are an experienced mechanic, you can test out of the classes by tuning up one of our bikes for sale -- and get volunteer credit while you do so -- and only pay the $40 supporting membership fee to use the shop and tools.) Once you have taken all four classes you can get help ad hoc to learn anything that was not covered -- for example, if you want to [http://sheldonbrown.com/deakins/how-to-fixed-conversion.html| build a fixed-gear on the cheap].

The goal is for all members to have basic repair skills, so we don't have to charge labor to members for individual instruction, as some other co-ops do; and for all members to know what beginners have learned, so they can help others more effectively.
