    Learning bike maintenance in San Mateo

    I've picked up basic skills working from the Park website. I find more involved repairs or upgrades are time consuming because of the adjustments that have to be made after a major component or assembly is changed. Some instruction would speed up the work and deliver a better result.
    I've read mentions of Bike Church and Bike Kitchen in SF.
    Has anyone had experience with those groups?
    Is there a counterpart in San Mateo county?
    Thanks

    The REI store in San Carlos has a full day maintenance course for $85. I did it and it really made a big difference in my ability to work on my bike. Highly recommended.

    I tried to sign up for the REI class in Concord 2X but they fill up fast. I even camped out before the class started to see if anyone drops out, no luck. I heard great things about the class.
