Does anyone know if these types of classes are offered in the Portland area? Having to pay shop rates is starting to get old. Not to mention waiting two or three days to get your bike back. Ultimately I'd like to get to the point where I felt comfortable doing a complete tear down and re-build.

Tori B., a local mechanic offers a great class out of her home. Check out this post for more info:

You can also find mechanic courses at local shops like North Portland Bikeworks.

Also, check out this post for info about a new local club that focuses on teaching people how to work on their bikes!
