BROMMIE CLINIC, Park Tool School • Learn Skills next weekend!

Greetings: we still have one space left at the Brommie Clinic on Saturday, April 9th.

From 9 a.m. to about 10:30, we will teach the tricks for keeping your Brompton folder bike happy, including how to get that pesky back wheel off (and on again), how to make your drivetrain last longer, and more. This is a hands-on, easy-paced , and FREE class–but you must contact us to reserve. One space left, please email: to hold your chair.

Tools X Technique + Time = PARK TOOL SCHOOL
Tools X Technique + Time = PARK TOOL SCHOOL

The Park TOOL SCHOOL is an all-day workshop that will show your everything involved in a modern derailer bike tune-up.  We provide a cheerful instructor, and all the tools & coffee needed to get through a day of skills-building. Class fee of $99 covers it all–and includes a coupon good for 15% off any tool purchase. On SUNDAY, April 10, 11 a.m to 5 p.m.    One space left, please call us now to reserve: 215-592-1234.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING (and see you Saturday!)

Do please note that we will be closed for Thanksgiving and also for the artificial shopping frenzy session that some call Black Friday.  We think you should refrain from shopping on those days; if enough of us do so, the big boxes will let their staff enjoy the holiday with their families.  Then come to us on Saturday and just let that debit card rip!

IN OTHER NEWS: Trophy stalwarts Bob Burdalski and Nick Manta will return to Pittsburgh on Saturday for their second crack at THE DIRTY DOZEN, a day-long adventure that tackles 12 of that city’s steepest hills. The DD regulations note that if a rider put a foot down on any hill, he or she must go back down and start again… Wish the fellows luck!
