    I wanted the same but a pro told me just to buy a repair book and take your bike completely apart (or preperably a backup bike), change all the adjustment screws (so you'll have to properly readjust them again), clean and grease everything, and put the bike back together again. it was great advice, now i feel like i can adjust or replace any component, except headset cups, so i let the LBS do that.
    And if you want to learn older stuff like threaded heatsets, non-cartridge BBs and headsets, we'll buy some cheap older bikes and have fun.

    Hello, You do not state as to what level of bike repair you would like to learn, and how quickly. Bushwhackers in Peoria, IL hosts a clinic for basics. Park Tool's and Sheldon Brown's websites have plenty of good reading on bicycle repair. Another suggestion would be to post on the Quad City Bicycle Club forum (QCBC).
