Description

Take a deep dive into the internal systems of a bicycle and learn more advanced bike repair. In this class we will learn the in-depth anatomy of a bike and become acquainted with the tools used in a professional shop. Topics will include hubs, bottom brackets, headsets, wheel truing, derailleur hanger repair and more. Bring your own bike to work on, or we can provide one for you. Basic supplies will be provided.

*Hydraulic brake bleeding, full suspension/shocks, and tubeless tires will not be covered.

All students must review and adhere to all of The Crucible's Health and Safety Guidelines to best protect our students and staff during this public health crisis. All students ages 12 and up must bring proof of vaccination to your first day of class. If your class is cancelled by The Crucible due to updated county guidance, we are pleased to offer you a refund for a class or session that cannot run.
For adult classes, youth ages 12+ are welcome to take any adult class for ages 16+, if the parent/guardian is registered in the same class with them. The only exception is for classes in the Glass Blowing Department, where youth must be 14+ to register with their parent/guardian. Adult classes marked 18+ are only for adults over the age of 18. For youth classes, the age requirements stated on the class are generally non-negotiable, unless a student has taken multiple prior classes with us and gets approval from Crucible staff and the class instructor for an exception.
Students who withdraw at least seven days prior to the first scheduled session of a class will receive a full refund, minus the non-refundable $50 registration fee. No portion of tuition will be refunded or transferred if a withdrawal is made less than seven days before the class start date. Classes are subject to cancellation; and in the event that The Crucible cancels a class, students receive information about refund, credit, or transfer. If you are interested in taking a class, register early so we know you're interested! There are no make-up classes. No exceptions. While it is infrequent, instructors are subject to change. See all of The Crucible's Policies and Resources.
At The Crucible, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing, long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames. Layers are encouraged as the studio can be very cold or very hot. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed. The CDC has a guide to acceptable cloth masks that help prevent the spread of infection. Bandannas will not be accepted inside The Crucible.
The Crucible is conveniently located at 1260 7th Street, Oakland, CA, just two blocks east of the West Oakland BART station. There is a student parking lot with spaces available on a first-come, first-served basis. The lot fills up quickly, and we encourage students to bike or take public transit to class. For weekend or weeklong classes, there are great places to grab food around the area, including at 7th West and Mandela Grocery Cooperative, as well as a microwave on-site at The Crucible for students who wish to warm up packed lunches.

Eli Weinburd

I became a bicycle mechanic through a series of community bike shops. I learned, volunteered, and found community at RUBARB in New Orleans ’ upper ninth ward, Catholic Worker’s Bike Cave in Duluth, Chainbreaks in Santa Fe, and Spokeland here in Oakland. My hope in teaching bicycle mechanics at The Crucible is to spread some of the joy I found in these places.

Darcy Nicholson is originally from the Bay Area and came back after spending five years in Chicago where they studied the visual arts, working towards a BFA degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. They interned at the Field Museum of Chicago in the Entomology Department and a lot of their work is influenced by the lives of insects, along with celebrating nature and bringing to attention climate change awareness. Formerly a farm manager for Sanzuma Farms in San Rafael, which is dedicated to bringing farm-fresh food for low-income households in Marin, Darcy now works with Bay Bridge Solidarity cooking meals for homeless communities in the West Oakland area.

They work in jewelry making, scientific illustration rendered in watercolors, bike mechanics, permaculture farming, metalworking, stop motion animation among many other random things. Darcy was born in Marin County and grew up hanging out in Fairfax, California where multiple murals still exist that they completed during high school and college.
