  • Flat Fix Workshops Chez Redbeard

    Last night we held our first ever Flat Fix workshop at the shop! Our audience was a mix of road riders and mountain bikers -- including some high school kids all the way from Bronxville! -- so we worked on both types of bikes.

    If you missed the workshop, check out Rebecca Bratburd's terrific blog post about what she learned. Thanks, Rebecca!

    Coming up on Tuesday, 3/24 @ 7:30 PM -- Flat Fix, the ‪#‎Brompton‬ Edition. Please RSVP to redbeard@redbeardbikes.com, as space is limited.

    We'll cover how to fix a front and rear flat on a Brompton, plus tips on caring for your Brompton. If time allows, participants can practice on their own bike.
