Women's Bike Chains and Derailleurs Workshop

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Paradise Valley REI


  • Group size: 1
  • Instructor: Cole

A well-tuned bike can help make your riding smooth and efficient. Grinding gears, rubbing derailleurs, and squeeky chains are your bike's cry for help. Ready to learn how to prevent or eliminate these annoyances from your beloved bike? Join REI's expert bike techs for a workshop on how to care for and maintain your bike's derailleurs and chain. We'll tune derailleurs, adjust barrel adjusters, and diagnose common chain issues. Along the way, you'll learn best practices for care and cleaning surrounded by like-minded women. You'll get plenty of get-your-hands-dirty chances to practice. Bring your own bike or practice on one of ours.


Bikes provided by REI, but feel free to bring your own (well-tuned and fully-functioning) ride! Broken parts will not be diagnosed/fixed during this workshop. You must wear close-toed shoes to participate.
