In operation since 2011, Quadra Bike School (QBS) offers professional-level bicycle mechanic training in small groups.  Located on scenic Quadra Island on the west coast of Canada, QBS is run by Jerzy Smokey Dymny, a bicycle mechanic instructor with over 20 years of experience.

Quadra Bike School trains students to meet the demands and challenges of working bike shops.  The five weeks students spend at the facility allows them to immerse themselves in the theory and practical study of real world bicycle mechanics.

A new price structure has been made necessary because of increased costs. See following pages.

We also now have the  Copenhagen Wheels; the electric bike wheel as developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
https://www.superpedestrian.com/en/tech

This is the most advanced electric boost wheel in the world. It's controlled by your smart phone. But you can turn your phone off once you've entered the coded  password. Absolutely no exposed wires to get wet. Batteries are waterproof inside the hub. This is the only electric wheel I know of available in one-speed or 7-10 speed cassettes, and both 26"and 700c wheels. No disc brake model - there's no room for one.
