Learn Bike Repair At Our Park Tool School!

Papa Wheelies Bike Shop is proud to announce a whole new slate of Bicycle Repair Education for Winter 2016-17 season. We've developed our classes around a curriculum designed by the Park Tool Company, makers of the number-one brand of bicycle tools in the world.
All of our bike-repair classes are taught by Brian Keegan or Josh Pierce, who have 10-20 years of experience wrenching and teaching in bike shops. You'll learn the best ways to care for and fix problems on your road and mountain bikes using pro tools and procedures.

The course textbook for all the classes is Park Tool's Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair. It uses color photos and instructions to clearly explain the topics covered in our class and over 100 more various repairs and maintenance tasks including servicing bearing assemblies, wheels, braking and shifting 
systems, adjusting components, and more! Call 603.427.2060 or email info@papa-wheelies.com today to sign up - classes fill up very fast.
