Have you outgrown the bike you’ve been riding since your teens? Did you just learn how to ride and aren’t sure where to begin the bike-buying process? Do bike shops overwhelm you? Does it feel like bike shop employees speak a different language? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, this is the class for you!
