From the ground up, this course has saved me countless times on the road. From damming a punctured tire with a candy bar wrapper to fixing a friend's seized hub on a weekend tour to knowing the ins and outs of simply fixing a flat, wrapping bar tape, adjusting brake pads, truing a misaligned wheel, and adding grease to the proper places - this course is as good as it gets. The tales are fun, too, for the budding commuter and experienced racer alike - from stuffing tires with leaves in order to get back home to using a stem cap bolt to replace a broken seatpost collar bolt on a distance race - this class covers even the tallest tales and more. If you are committed to calling yourself a cyclist in the present or future, you are missing out if you haven't taken this course. Five stars. Additionally, if you plan on becoming a home mechanic the class pays for itself in the long run.
