Southern California - Clinics or seminars for newbies?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Are there any So. Cal. shops that put on clinics on bike maintenance or machanics? Seems like a good idea but I haven't heard of any.

I'd even pay money for that.... but I'd like to record it on video to post pieces in my safety presentations.
Any mechanically inclined actor wanna-be's out there in cycle land?

You can check with your local REI, although I've read that some have not been happy with their classes - depends on the instructor. Of course, they offered a free class recently, so you can't go wrong with that.

The LA Tri Club is putting on a maintenance clinic on January 24. No price, so I'm assuming it's free. According to the post, it looks like non-members are welcome, although call and double-check. I plan on going, so if you are required to be escorted by a club member, I will be happy to do so.
