Beers & Gears – Brake Pads / Side Pull Brakes
Help us make Indianapolis a city where bikes provide access to better lives.
Our youth and our community have demanded affordable used bikes for recreation and transportation. We haven’t been able to keep up in years past, and we’re committed to doing better this time around. That’s where you come in!
Every Thursday night from 7-9 PM we’ll be building and refurbishing bikes. But more than that, we’ll be putting the knowledge in your hands! Whether you’re a Build Night faithful or thinking about checking it out for the first time, you can expect a revamped schedule featuring:
+ a short mechanics lesson each week
+ a chance to practice your new skills
+ monthly opportunities to work on your own bike
+ real work, on real bikes, going into the hands of people who need them most
We guarantee you’ll get your hands dirty, connect with some great people, and go away with new skills and the knowledge that you’ve done good.
Topics covered during this session:
- Brake pad adjustment and replacement.
- Installation and adjustment of side-pull(road bike) style of brakes.
