We are excited to announce our next group of classes! Below are the list of classes being offered.  

Please call me at (949) 916-0960 to sign up,we are limiting all the classes to only 6 students per class so everyone has a work station and a bike stand. All classes will be booked on a first come, first served basis, so please sign up ASAP, classes are filling up quickly!

PLEASE NOTE: All class dates are tentative, must have 3 students pre-registered to greenlight the class. In the rare event that under 3 students fail to register for the class, we will keep all registered students informed of schedule change, and all students will be moved to the next scheduled class/ class series.

We encourage all students to bring the bike they own that either:
#1 They ride the most  
#2 Needs the most work    
OR
#3 All of the Above 

****Please let us know if you are planning on bringing in a single speed bike. For the Complete Bicycle Mechanic Series we recommend a geared bike.

Thank you,

Cory

Workshop Classes

The OC Bicycle Service & Garage’s workshop classes guarantee hands on, detailed classes. Each student will work using all the equipment and tools needed. Being a Park Tool Certified School, each student gets a certificate of completion with each class. Cory Clayton, chief instructor of the courses, will answer any and all of your questions and provide assistance throughout the course.

 Each student is provided a work station and stand. Best part about the class, you will learn using work stations you can come back to and use to work on your bike; familiarity is half the battle.

Requirements: BRING YOUR BIKE and a willingness to learn! You will get dirty, so please dress accordingly. No makeup classes are offered due to the intensity of the course, please make sure the class times fit your schedule. PLEASE NOTE:  DRESS WARM! Especially if you are taking one of the night courses.

If the course does not come with a Park Tool Repair Book, we strongly encourage all students to have one on hand. Having one of these is the best follow up reference guide. The book is also offered at a discounted price for students.

Things to consider: Tools are expensive, we like students to be aware of that fact so that you don’t get too shocked; However we have great deals on tools for students! This is also why we created three fully stocked work bench station rentals as a cost effective option.
