The Park Tool School is designed to be taught by your local bicycle shop and who better really seeing as they are the experts in repairing and maintaining bicycles. You will receive the Park Tool School manual as part of the class providing you information on basic mechanical skills as well as detailed instructions for repairing and maintaining wheels, bearing assemblies, braking and shifting systems, etc. – Basically everything you need to know to keep your bicycle rolling smoothly and safely.
The material in the student manual acts as the outline for each session of the clinic, which is augmented by the hands-on demonstration of the instructor.
