The Park Tool School®, a unique program for learning bicycle maintenance and repair in a hands-on environment. The course is taught by the staff of Amling’s Cycle, experts in repairing and maintaining bicycles. You will receive the Park Tool®Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair as part of the class providing you information on basic mechanical skills as well as detailed instructions for repairing and maintaining wheels, bearing assemblies, braking and shifting systems, etc.--everything you need to know to keep your bicycle, recumbent, or recumbent tricycle rolling smoothly and safely. The material in the student manual acts as the outline for the clinic, which is augmented by the hands-on demonstration of the instructor. The class conducted in either a single, 4 hour session or two 2 hour weeknight sessions.

The clinic includes:

  • Tools and lubrication
