The Learning Continuum - aka Where you at?

Today I changed my brake and derailleur cables/housings for the first time, and I feel great.

I know this is chump change for so many on this forum, and others would leave this task for the LBS. Thanks to all the members on this forum that do their own work, and share their experiences; it's this kind of thing that gave me the courage, or maybe shamed me into, finally taking on this basic maintenance skill. Even though it took me all day, now I feel a lot more in control of my bike and what I can do to keep it working right.

So, I'm interested in where others are on the learning curve (maybe mechanical, or maybe some other aspect of the commuting life). What is that next big thing you want to accomplish?
