Don't settle for squeaky, squishy brakes — a few quick adjustments can have you stopping on a dime.

With this hands-on, classroom style course, you will be able to identify the various parts of your bicycle's braking system, replace worn out brake pads and cables, and fine-tune everything to a T. (Disc brakes not covered.)

NEW! Complete five Yellow Bike adult education courses and come build a bicycle out of donated frames and parts at Austin's Yellow Bike Project! Ask your instructors for more information and a card to track your progress.

What you'll learn:

Survey of common rim brake technologies
Cable, housing and brake pad replacement
Repair and maintenance on caliper, linear-pull («v brakes»), and cantilever brakes
How to make quick adjustments on the go
How to properly adjust brakes for maximum stopping and minimal squealing
