DIY Bikes will be at the West Seattle Tool Library on Thursday, April 3rd, offering free bike repair between 6:00 and 8:00 PM.
This week’s theme is hub overhaul!
Have you ever wanted to take apart the hubs on your wheels but were too afraid of not putting it back together right? Or maybe you don’t have the tools, or know what tools to use? Have you adjusted those cup-and-cone bearings only to have them never be smooth?
We’ll have plenty of tools and hubs for you to get your hands dirty while we help you learn how to overhaul a hub. The hubs will be cup-and-cone bearing style, and we’ll have front and rear hubs to work on.
This workshop is open for kids as well, with parent supervision.
We’re asking for you to register for this event so we can have enough tools and hubs for everyone. We’ve limited it to 10 people so we have enough space inside the Tool Library.
