Does anyone have expirence with UBI? I have a few weeks of paid vacation time i need to use this summer. Looking to take there intro week long course. (http://www.bikeschool.com/intro.htm).
For $495, you could buy a pretty decent MTB for experimental purposes rather than spending it on a class. I bet you already know how to do most of that stuff anyway
Actualy, i just talked to my manager, and work would actualy pay for the class. I have 88hrs of paid time off, so the 2 week course would be a bit better. I think i'm going to go for it. I'll end up paying ~$300 for travel, rent and food... not too bad.
A few years ago, I received as a retirement gift the two week UBI course. It was terrific. The staff is superb. I'll use forever the things that I learned there. Don't pass it up. John
Joe. Not much. I had been doing much of the maintenance work on my bikes, but I certainly wasn't a mechanic. John
UBI sounds like a great way to spend a vacation. Go for it!
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

I took the 2 week course there a few years ago. I learned a few new things and few better ways to do some others. The staff is great. The town is great. The riding is great. You get the Idea right?
Go Medium Or Go HOME!!!!!

Does this mean you're quitting your day, er, night job?Originally posted by Joe Gardner
I do simple maintence, and have no problems adjusting breaks, derailleurs, changing cassetts and cables... but i wouldnt dare work on anyone elses bike but my own.
I considered doing this a few years ago when I was unemployed. Let us know how you like the course.
We'll try not to destroy BF while you're gone.
