Community Workshops:

Frame Bending – Saturday, August 23 – 12:30 – 2 pm @ The WRENCH

This advanced workshop will cover some intro frame bending techniques for straightening derailleur hangers, straightening dropouts and assessing if a frame’s rear triangle is out of alignment.  Plenty of old bike frames have slight bends where they shouldn’t and this workshop will teach important techniques that should be in every bike mechanic’s toolbox.
