Sorry if this has been asked before, search wasn't helpful.
I just bought a used road bicycle, and I'm competent with some bike repair. I'm looking for a book/online tutorial that gives a step-by-step on a bicycle tune-up similar to what you would pay your LBS to do. Attempting to be self sufficient and save some cash. Doesn't have to be free as long as it's good. Thanks

Park (either the web site or the book) is good for beginners because it is well organized and has lots of color photos. They do push their tools, of course, but not too much.

Yeah I checked out those sites before, and they all are great to use if you have a specific problem you need to address. I'm looking for a guide that runs through exactly what a LBS would do for a tune up

Try this video:
You'll need to pay for a subscription, which is well worth doing when you're learning. Excellent videos on that site.
