OCBC Shop Manual

This manual is designed to help you have a better time volunteering at the co-op. It's much easier to have a good time if the job you're doing is easier, and we hope to make it easier by providing explanations that you can use to learn new tasks or remember how to do ones you've done before. There are entries here for most of the things we do in the shop, but some basic bicycle repair tasks that are hard to learn without taking a class are left out (for example, there's no article on how to adjust brakes). Enjoy!
