$200 for 4 2hour classes? I should open a school. personally I am not sure if it is worth it, especuially if the add say "Participants are encouraged to have previous basic bike maintenance experience". what are they going to teach?
if you already have previous maint exp chances are you can already keep you bike tuned and cleaned. if your working on you bike and mechanically inclined it is pretty easy to self tech yourself to change a BB or Headset. the hard part if buying the 'heavy' tools for doing such things.
now if the course was going to teach people who knew nothing or was for advanced and they were teaching things like facing and chasing a BB and headtube, or threading a fork, aligning dropouts, frames and forks. all lots arts in the carbon world. it might be worth it.
Just my humble opinion. was there something special you wanted to learn? is this the REI on Rt 73 near Marlton? I was not impressed with the "bike people" there
