i saw an ad from an lbs for the park school. one day/$75. dunno how involved it gets. what i'd really like to learn is adjusting the
derailleurs. i bought the big blue book of bicycle repair (1st edition) and that section wasn't much help. i discussed it with an lbs guy
and he said adjustments were more art than science. meaning everything isn't precise. wear, stretch, new parts- they all have an effect.
same goes for trunig wheels. i (finally) got to where i can get really close.
there are 2 non-profit lbs (one is actually a co-op) in denver that will guide you, using volunteers and free space/stand/tools to use. sweet.
