Continuing Education Seminars

Continuing Education SeminarsUBI's Continuing Education Seminars are designed for experienced mechanics, or previous graduates who have completed our Professional Repair and Shop Operation course. The goal of the seminars is to provide training in specific skills and technologies that will help you become a more complete mechanic. Topics will vary from year to year in order to stay current with the latest bicycle technology.

FOX MASTER TECH CLINIC

UBI is partnering with FOX Racing Shox to offer FOX Master Tech Clinics again in 2013. This one-day clinic, designed for experienced bike mechanics who work for authorized Fox dealers, will give students the latest tips, techniques and hands-on training for servicing FOX forks.

FOX Master Tech Clinic

Who Will Benefit:

  • Experienced Mechanics
  • FOX dealers
  • Career Oriented Mechanics

The clinics will be taught by FOX technicians and UBI instructors. Here’s the exciting part: In addition to the knowledge gained in the clinic, each student, at registration, will choose a FOX fork to assemble and work on during class. At the end of the class, the student will keep the fork that they have chosen!

Pre-requisites:

  • The student must be employed by an authorized FOX dealer.
  • The student must have the consent of his/her supervisor or the owner of the dealer to attend.
  • At the time of registration, the student must choose the fork he or she intends to use for class. This choice is final.

What You Will Learn

Students will learn the essentials of Fox bicycle suspension design, service intervals, and a deep understanding of FOX suspension internals. Hands-on procedures include disassembly and reassembly of FOX cartridges in 32 and 34  stanchion forks, rear shock air sleeve service, and a complete overhaul of the student's chosen FOX fork. Beginning with the November 2012 clinic, we will focus on FOX's new CTD technology.

Tuition:

Total tuition is $600, which includes the FOX fork! A $300 NON-REFUNDABLE registration fee is due at the time of registration.

Here are the forks the students can choose from:
