The nimble-fingered neighborhood cycle nurturers at Dash Bicycle Shop repair and restore two-wheelers to tip-top shape before storage season. Roll in your lifeless stallion to a knowledgeable attendant for a thorough basic tune-up. Both wobbly wheels will be removed to undergo cleaning, a hub adjustment, and a truing process to increase pedal-pumping efficiency and ease momentum retention. Surgical adjustments are made to the bottom bracket, headset, and the tension of the brakes, ensuring riders can stop on a dime, pick it up, and buy a Chiclet without ever dismounting. Derailleurs are inspected, adjusted, and lightly cleaned to transform sticky gears into smooth shifters. A lube-up of the chain, cables, and key pivot points on the brakes and derailleurs combats creaky rides, and torque is checked on all bolts to maximize not falling off. After a gussy-up of the frame with a light cleaning, a tire inflation gives the bike cushy pillows on which to dream fondly of next year's smoothed-over potholes.
Keeseh Studio's woodworkers oversee a community woodshop, hosting classes in a variety of timber topics and granting access to machinery, tools, and workspaces for aspiring carpenters of all experience levels. Whether interested in crafting furniture or whittling a new set of dentures for a robot, clients can enroll in classes covering topics such as design, construction, hand tools, and machinery. During the four-hour Jumpstart Woodworking course, students learn proper use of machinery ($75), or the two-hour Small Table Course's seven sessions guide students through the process of crafting four-legged dining fixtures or table-dancing surfaces ($300). In the Join Us for Joinery class, students meet for four separate three-hour sessions that inculcate a detailed understanding of joinery for hardwood and plywood construction. Instruction from skilled woodworkers ensures that the only thing that threatens the aesthetic integrity of their woodworking projects is a surprise beaver attack.
